Christopher Nolan’s epic film ‘Inception’ starts with a scene that depicts corporate espionage in its most futuristic form, where a group of ‘Dream stealers’ invade a competitor’s dreams to steal corporate secrets. While the possibility of that happening anytime soon seems remote, there is a very real risk of your critical business data being sold to your competitors.
In most cases, the perpetrator is a disgruntled employee who has been fired or reprimanded by your firm. Even if this is not a possibility, there’s always a risk of a competitor using unscrupulous methods like bribes to gain access to sensitive data or asking one of your employees to spy for them. In a business environment that thrives on the internet and with a million mobile apps that can conceal their tracks, an employee can very easily do this and get away with it without being detected.
Unless, you have something to track their activities with. That’s what something like ChamSpy does. It allows you to stay protected and keep your business-critical data secure by monitoring the business related activities of your employees and restricting access to possible avenues that can be used to share sensitive data.
ChamSpy has an enterprise grade solution that is used by some of the biggest names in the corporate world including Forbes, to monitor their employee activities, related to the business. Mpsy is installed on the device in a discreet fashion and keeps tabs of the communication channels that are originated and received on the phone.
Company emails will be scanned. At the same time, personal emails that can also be used to share business data may also be remotely recorded. This covers all the bases that you’d be concerned about. Mpsy also allows you to limit access to social media platforms during office hours even on BYOD devices, which is directly linked to an increase in productivity and can affect your business significantly.
Further, you can also block websites that have a history of transmitting malware or other malicious content that can be used as a backdoor to gain access to your company’s servers.
But that’s not all. If your employees work profile involves travel during office hours, mpsy’s GPS tracking allows you to know if they are adhering to the work schedule or using the time for their personal activities. It is not uncommon for an employee to take an extended route to a business meeting and enjoy a lunch at their favorite joint enroute. While these things may seem trivial and a common part of every business, it can make a significant difference, especially if you work in a very competitive business environment.
As an employer, you have every right to monitor the digital and electronic communications that your employees make while working for you. It is completely legal in all states. If you are unsure whether this is included in your employee contract, then you can speak to your lawyers and include this clause.
