Sewickley, PA - 11/15/07 - InfoWorks Technology today announced the release of Office Cyber Alert, an all-in-one PC/Internet Activity Monitoring and Filtering software, especially designed for small to mid-sized businesses. Office Cyber Alert, modeled after the company’s award-winning Family Cyber Alert for home users, addresses today’s business owners’ pressing needs in the areas of increasing employee productivity, protecting information, and discouraging employee-to-employee misconduct.

“The statistics are staggering for how distracting the Internet can be for today’s workers – from personal emailing to online shopping – employees are costing businesses plenty in lost dollars and decreased productivity. With Office Cyber Alert, business owners can monitor and record everything their employees do online in real-time,” states Jesse Song, President of InfoWorks Technology. Office Cyber Alert can be centrally administered, with the ability to remotely monitor every desktop and laptop computer on a company’s network. It also alerts the business owner immediately when anyone is not complying with policies that have been specified.  

In addition, Office Cyber Alert features the ability to record: Emails, Chats, and Instant Messages; website and application usage; file access; and, keystrokes. It can also: take screen snapshots; record time and sequence; block Emails, chats, and instant messages; block websites and games, and other applications; and, provide automatic keyword detection and alert emails.

Another benefit of using Office Cyber Alert is minimizing misconduct between employees and being able to help reduce the chances of facing legal liability for employee harassment and discrimination. The monitoring software not only deters employees from inappropriately using the Internet, it arms business owners with recorded proof so that wrongdoing claims can be proactively addressed and used as evidence to protect a company in court.

Among the most critical benefits of using Office Cyber Alert is the protection of a company’s confidential information. Through online monitoring and recording, Office Cyber Alert provides employers with concrete evidence of employees leaking company-sensitive information to competitors and/or employees divulging confidential customer information.

Office Cyber Alert also provides business owners with information needed to comply with government regulations, such as: the Sarbanes-Oxley Act to control corporate accounting responsibility; the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA) to protect patient information; The Patriot Act, the Identity Theft and Assumption Deterrence Act, and the National Association of Security Dealers (NASD) to preserve electronic correspondence with clients, to name just a few.

“We like to say that ‘Office Cyber Alert is real-time vigilance for your business and your employees’ because you are safeguarding against the misuse of information to be used against your company AND you are monitoring any inappropriate use of the Internet to harm your employees, all in real-time, as any wrongdoing is happening.” says Song.

Ideal for any type of business, Office Cyber Alert can be used by doctors’ offices, dentists’ offices, banks, brokers, accounting firms, non-profit organizations, schools, churches, etc.
