Agent, a small program installed on every workstation in the company, is unfairly associated only with user invigilation, as it’s mainly used to provide full network intelligence and support its security. But this is only a small part of the advantages of agent monitoring.
For monitoring network devices: network switches, routers, printers, environment monitors, etc. on which an agent cannot be installed.
For monitoring computers with MS Windows operating systems (XP, Vista, or newer).
nVision Agents provide synergy of innovative network monitoring and much more information about the network and its users with a single console view. nVision Agents are safe to use because all the information they send is encrypted with a 256-bit key. The database is also password-protected. The transmitted data is added to an archive before it is sent and unpacked when it reaches nVision. The Agents send small packets every few hours. The average daily traffic generated by a single Agent is roughly 150 kB. The Agent stores data from the last three weeks in its local database and uses very little CPU resources: 1–5%, temporarily up to 15%.
The installed Agents will be updated automatically. They can be removed at any time through the nVision console.
