ViaControl TM

Major Functions

Corporations nowadays not only protect their physical resources; human resources, intangible assets such as intellectual property, information, and goodwill are also very important. ViaControl provides effective monitoring and managing capabilities to help corporations minimize their risks in information security. ViaControl is an application to effectively monitor and manage corporate network activities, including:

Running Statistics

ViaControl can generate statistics reports on every application process, website browsing, and network flow in order to evaluate the behavior of staffs.

Real-time Monitoring

With ViaControl, administrator can monitor computer usage, including application usage, website browsing history, document operation, printing, screen snapshots, instant messages, and email contents in real time.

Policy Control

Computer restrictions including application usage, website browsing, document operation and printing, network usage, bandwidth, and devices can securely protect corporation information, enhance staff efficiency, and allow corporation to plan resources reasonably.

Real-time Maintenance

System administrators can monitor computers remotely with ViaControl. It controls computers, analyzes, and solves computer problems remotely.

Asset Management

ViaControl records hardware and software asset information in detail. Alert can be sent when there is any change in software or hardware. Asset information can be searched from custom-built query.

Patch and Vulnerability Management

ViaControl frequently checks Windows patches. It automatically downloads, distributes, and installs the patch to agents if new patch is found. Also, it scans for vulnerability frequently with analytical information and repair suggestions.

Software Deployment

ViaControl provides a simple way to distribute documents and deploy third party software to internal computers within the corporation to lighten the workload of administrator and enhance efficiency at the same time.

General characteristics:

Compress, archive, and view data

Optimized data compress algorithm to ensure high efficiency data access. Historical screen snapshot information is stored in the internal archive system of the server using a specialized compression format. System administrator can backup the archived data to backup storage device. Authorized users can search and view the historical data by selecting the target computer and its recording period.

Data Encryption

Data transfer between workstation and server are encrypted using DES algorithm. With this encryption technology, data is protected from illegal data capture.

System Authentication

Authentication is required for communication between server, agent, and console. Agent workstation can only respond to authenticated server to prevent unauthenticated server connecting to the network to steal data.

Friendly User Interface

Despite powerful monitoring and data management functions, ViaControl has a simple and easy-to-use user interface. All functions are well organized and visualized in the graphical user interface.

Expandable and Cost-saving Solution

Computer equipment can be fully utilized under ViaControl system. It can be easily deployed from a single workstation to a network environment. Number of managed workstations can also be adjusted. Hence, it reduces the software cost for hardware and network upgrade.
