LanAgent Standard Download Free Trial and Review – employee monitoring and information security tool
If you own a growing business, keep hiring people and renting more office space, you may soon notice how things are getting out of hand. When you are small, you know exactly what everyone in your team is doing at any given moment of time and can clearly see when something goes wrong. When you have a few dozen employees and up, you inevitably lose the former degree of control and may see the overall performance of your business going downwards for reasons that have nothing to do with the market, buyers and your cash flow.
I personally faced this problem when my company went from 4 to 33 in just one year. I could no longer tell what my employees were doing. Walking down an aisle to my office, I could see their faces turned to their monitors and heard the clicking of their keyboards. Was I sure that they were doing their jobs? Not a bit.
After some consideration, my partner and I decided to do something we wouldn’t even think about a year before – start monitoring our employees. We reckoned that it would help us get a better understanding of where we were in terms of discipline and morale. On a side note, we were also concerned with possible data leaks, since we were working on some new products at that time. We didn’t want to make a serious investment and soon found a tool that met all of our needs (at least theoretically) – LanAgent Standard.

The program came at a price of a couple of steaks at a local restaurant and its installation took less time than it would take me to finish off one of them. The software consists of the main part that we installed on my partner’s PC and multiple agents that are planted into employees’ systems. Agents quietly sit there and collect all relevant information about the way these computers are used. The data are then fed to the main part, processed and presented to the administrator in a structured and well-readable form. We were deeply and pleasantly surprised to see that the program delivered beyond our expectations. LanAgent Standard logs key presses, applications launches and exits, URLs of visited websites, documents printed, files copied to USB drives and more! Apart from this, the product was capable of intercepting IM messages, emails and making automatic screenshots, so we were fully informed about our employees’ communications. Finally, it allowed us to block the possibility of launching specific applications, connection of external drives and visits to certain sites – all for the noble purpose of raising our discipline and helping our team work productively in a temptation-free environment.
Quite unexpectedly, it worked. We had two serious conversations with two of our employees who seemed to be more interested in finding the men of their dreams online than becoming good account managers. Quite unfortunately, we were also forced to part ways with one of our project managers who had been in contact with a major competitor and had been copying our designs onto his personal USB drive for some time.
To sum up, I highly recommend LanAgent Standard to anyone looking for a powerful (very powerful!), yet extremely easy to use employee monitoring and information security tool that will not burn a hole in their personal or corporate budget. We made it a part of our infrastructure and have had no problems ever since. And that is exactly what I wish you and your business.
