Architecture and system requirements StaffCop Enterprise

Staffcop Enterprise is based on client-server architecture.
Agents and administrators connect to the server via encrypted HTTPS protocol. Any types of infrastructures are supported, including NAT-translation, VPN-channels and other variants of connections. This gives the possibility to operate on a remote computer which is not located in the local network of a company.

Offline mode – monitor users even when they are unavailable.
If an agent can’t connect to the server it stores data in its local database and starts transferring it to the server at the first opportunity. This function allows to carry out constant monitoring of employees who connect to the internet using temporary channels – mobile 3G/4G modems, public Wi-Fi networks, e. t. c. So, in case an employee goes on a business trip with his working laptop, he keeps being monitored and controlled.

Staffcop Enterprise requires only one server running GNU/Linux-based OS to collect, store and analyze data on user activity.

Server

Staffcop Server runs Ubuntu Server 16.04 LTS amd64 and can be installed on bare-metal, virtual machine or VDS\VPS server.

StaffCop doesn’t support Docker container.

Yes, you can.

For that you need to install VirtualBox environment and then install StaffCop Server on it.

Endpoint agents

An endpoint agent is launched on workstations or terminal servers running Windows or Linux-based OS, tracks user actions and events, transfers them to the server and implements locking and access denials.

A Staffcop Enterprise agent can work on a remote computer which is not located in the local network of a company.
