Remote Management

Monitor Your Network Computers Remotely in Real Time

Remote Management is a special feature that allows you to view logs and configure filters remotely from any computer on the same network. It lets you see all logs, set up website and application filters and even start/stop monitoring of your computer(s) from any place in the office. Your changes take effect immediately.

The Remote Management is one of many features of our programs - HT Employee Monitor and HT System Administrator.
