    I was just asked by my boss to install some monitoring software on the pcs here at the office. What do you guys use. We want something that can run in the backround and keep track of browsing history.

    One of our employees is emailing out information to one of our competitors. :wtc:

    Browsing history can be covered by a web filter. Exactly how deep are you wanting to be able to dig?

    At our school, we have software installed that tracks browser history, program history and even keystrokes (against my better judgment, but it was put in place before I started.) for all students with a school-used laptop that has our operating system installed. It is called LAN School -- might get you pointed in the right direction.

    Well, for email, I would look at the exchange server, or our mailgateway server (sits between the internet and exchange). For web logs, I would look at the firewall's logs. I wouldn't install anything on the machine though.

    Why not sniff it off the router/switch? Depending on how many people are on the network, use something like wireshark, capture all the packets and go through them that way. Wireshark provides a pretty easy way of organizing all the data easily. It's free and if you only need to do it a few times this may be a better alternative.
