Computer Monitoring Software For All-Round Family Computing Protection

Pandora : 11 May, 2010  (New Product)
Pandora explains the principles of its Computer Monitoring Software and explains the increased levels of protection offered by full monitoring rather than limiting protection to anti-virus, firewall and web threats
Computer security affects all PC users. From protecting against viruses and hackers to keeping children safe as they surf online, anyone who owns a computer has to take steps to safeguard their machines.

Parental control software is the best answer for parents looking to keep their kids safe online; but computer monitoring software can perform a valuable function in any home - with or without kids - by keeping an exact record of everything you do on your PC.

"There is lot that can happen to your machine, on purpose or by accident, that can have an effect on both the machine's performance and your safety," states Manuel Coats, Co-Founder of Pandora, makers of PC Pandora monitoring software.

For example, deleting the wrong files could lead to a corrupt system; accidentally changing settings or resetting passwords could lock users out of important accounts; private passwords and personal information can be opened up to anyone that cares to snoop on your machine. But computer monitoring software will provide you with a record of everything that happened, allowing the PC owner to isolate the problem with a better chance of rectifying it.

PC Pandora is parental control software that monitors and records all user activity. PC Pandora is like a TiVo for your PC - it takes sequential snapshots of all activity on screen and lets the administrator view those images with a DVD-like playback feature. Everything that happened on the computer - who did what and when - is revealed. Further details of user activity are recorded in text-based files and charts showing instant messenger chats, emails sent and received, websites visited, keystrokes logged, peer-2-peer files shared, programs accessed and more.

For personal business affairs like online banking and bill paying, having an extra record of everything can be a relief when unexpected situations arise. For example, if an online payment fails to go through, monitoring software lets the user go back in time and retrieve confirmation numbers.

Coats adds, "If you suspect your account has been hacked or you have become a victim of identity theft, monitoring software like PC Pandora will let you find those websites or emails that may be the culprit, in a completely safe manner."

For workers that spend a significant amount of time working at home, or professionals that travel frequently, computer monitoring software can be a lifesaver if an important document or presentation is lost, deleted or becomes corrupted and unable to be opened outside of the office environment.

"This is a sort of 'no chance' economy," explains Coats. "We can't afford to have a mistake on the computer cost us money. There's really no room for error anymore - we can't take chances."

'If you have children in the house, a visual record of everything your child does will tell you if they are communicating with someone they shouldn't be, looking at something you don't approve of, or engaging in cyberbullying,' says Coats. "The key to keeping kids safe online is knowing, with 100% certainty, what they are doing."

Having parental control/monitoring software can also be helpful if the family machine sees usage by various third parties, including extended family in town for the weekend or a child's friend. Programs like PC Pandora will enable you to track any harmful changes that may have been made to your system.

Sometimes the danger may lie with illegal activity being performed on a family PC. But whether it's downloading pirated music and movies, or inappropriate and illegal photos of minors, the computer's owner is the one who will answer to authorities and pay the fines.

"If your child's friend convinces them to use your credit card number to make a purchase online or subscribe to a pornographic website, that's something you need to not only know about, but know all the details of," adds Coats. "Computer monitoring software like PC Pandora gives you a full visual and documented recording of everything that happens on your PC. You can fix problems quickly, and hold anyone using the computer in an inappropriate manner accountable for their activity."

Security to your home PC is essential in today's networked and connected world. In this economy, it is even more imperative that mistakes be handled quickly, before they become costly. Having the ability to know everything that happens on your machine can play a vital role in fixing system errors, putting a stop to illegal activity, and keeping your kids safe online in this "no chances" economy. Monitoring software like PC Pandora 6.0 is an imperative security measure.
