Screen Playback

See the world through your employee's eyes

The proof you need, exactly when you need it By default, Veriato CNE Investigator captures screen snapshots every 30 seconds. It can be configured to take snapshots more or less frequently, when keywords you specify are detected, and during key events—such as when a program is opened, when certain keys are pressed, a web page loads or on clicks of a mouse.

  • Play it back, like your DVR
    Because screenshots are taken continuously, you can easily replay activity before, during and after the action in question. This provides you with objective proof and context around questionable activity.
  • Export it and take it with you
    Screen snapshots can be exported as individual BMP or JPG graphic files. Multiple snapshots can be exported together as an AVI video file.

Web Activity

Get detailed visibility into exactly what your employees are doing on the internet

This isn’t your father’s web history

Significantly more sophisticated than browser history, Veriato CNE Investigator records and maintains information about web activity including:

  • Page title of website
  • Categorization of the type of websites
  • Total, Active, & Focus Time on websites
  • Total number of visits to websites
  • Time of last visit

See what’s on their mind
Web searches are the best way to understand what your employee is thinking about. Is it work-related or are they shopping for shoes? Searches are split out from web page visits to allow you to see exactly what they are interested in.

What’s coming into your network?
Veriato CNE Investigator also tracks every file and program download that occurs over the Internet (such as file/music swapping services, software download sites, pornographic images, etc.), keeping you informed of inappropriate content, potential malware and unauthorized applications.

Know how much time they’re really taking
Having Facebook open for 8 hours—is it a problem? You can’t tell just by looking at how long the browser was left open. In addition to you how long the web browser was open, Veriato CNE Investigator also informs you how much time the web browser was in the foreground as well as how much time the employee spend interacting with it.

Email Activity

Visibility into all corporate and webmail-based email

Every email, regardless of platform Veriato CNE Investigator captures and stores email from corporate email platforms, such as Exchange and Lotus Notes, as well as webmail sources like Gmail, Yahoo, and Hotmail, ensuring you see what information is coming in and going out.

  • A permanent archive of both sides of the conversation
    All email sent and received are archived, including attachments, creating a permanent record of all email, even when the employee deletes their copy.
  • See behind encryption
    Because Veriato CNE Investigator records at the employee’s computer, even email sent behind SSL encryption is visible, ensuring you see every email

Chat & IM Activity

See both sides of computer-based messaging

All major chat apps…and more Veriato CNE Investigator supports over a dozen of the most-used messaging applications including





Windows Live Messenger

Flexible enough to include your own
The Chat/IM recorder can be configured to include custom ports to support capturing message activity on additional or proprietary chat applications.

Document Tracking

Keep tabs on where they come from and where they go

Know what’s uploaded and downloadedNot knowing what’s entering and leaving your company’s network is like leaving the front door wide open—open to data leaving the organization and malware being introduced into it.

Uploaded files can contain sensitive information and files downloaded from peer-to-peer sites can fill your network with pornography, pirated music, video or software, as well as files filled with spyware, adware, or viruses.

Veriato CNE Investigator records every file transferred across the Internet by monitoring HTTP, FTP and P2P file transfers. It records the filename, protocol, application, type of file, the date and time of the transfer and more to keep you informed of exactly what’s coming in and going out over the network.

Every document…documented
When files are copied to USB, DVD, CD-R, even floppy or Zip drives, and when files are printed, Veriato CNE Investigator keeps track of every last detail about who is accessing documents and what they do with them.

Application Activity

Know when they’re working and what they’re working on

Every application, every detail
The moment an application is launched, Veriato CNE Investigator begins to track the application name, launch time, the number of times it’s been opened, window title and more.

Are they working or not?
It’s one thing to open an application, it’s completely another to actually be working within the application. Veriato CNE Investigator differentiates the Total Time an application is open (from launch to close), from Focus Time (the amount of time the application window is in the foreground) from Active Time (the amount of time there is keyboard and mouse activity within the application) to give you a true sense of who is—and isn’t—working.

Network Activity

Look at user activity from the network’s perspective

Network events made simple
Veriato CNE Investigator takes all the technical know-how usually required with network monitoring and simplifies it down to the details that are most important to you. With each network event, Veriato CNE Investigator records:

  • Name of the program that established the network connection
  • Start and end time of event
  • Protocol used for connection
  • Domain name where connections were made
  • IP address of the target connection
  • Port used for the connection
  • Number of connections during the event
  • Number of bytes sent during the event
  • Number of bytes received during the event
  • Duration of the event

Keystroke Activity

Record every last key and never miss a thing

Not just what was typed
In addition to recording each key pressed, Veriato CNE Investigator associates the keystrokes to the user, the application used, the title of the window, the date and time the event occurred and more.

Passwords or not…your choice
Some employers don't want to accidentally obtain the passwords for their employee's personal accounts. Veriato CNE Investigator can be configured to not capture passwords, enhancing employee privacy.

Activity Alerts

Know what’s happening as it happens

Real-time Alerting
Because you suspect someone of inappropriate behavior, reaction time is critical. Veriato CNE Investigator notifies you via email alert when these actions occur.

Contextual Alerting
Using specified keywords, multiple sources (such as email, websites, applications, keystrokes, and window captions) are scanned. Should a keyword match be triggered, Veriato CNE Investigator notifies you which keyword alert was triggered.

Detailed Reviewing
Because you’re concerned about these events enough to be notified, Veriato CNE Investigator can be configured to increase the frequency of screen snapshots around this event, providing you with even greater ability to review the Screen Playback.

Web Filtering

Allow the activity you want—block what you don't

You can specify what websites you want to block or allow, narrowing down what your employees can access on the Internet. A list of domains can be imported, making it easier to manage.

Messaging can be blocked, as well as specific combinations of contact names and chat/IM providers can be either blocked or allowed

Internet Access
If you desire, you can block the entire Internet or just parts of it. Veriato CNE Investigator makes it easy to define exactly what Internet traffic you want to block, based on predefined Internet functions (such as email or website traffic) or custom network ports you define.
