Frequently Asked Questions
Can I deploy this without my employees knowing they are being investigated?
Yes, by default, Veriato Investigator’s agent is deployed silently to either your Windows or Mac clients.
Can I record only certain activities?
Yes. Veriato Investigator allows you to configure the recording settings and disable the recording of any of the activity types you desire.
Can I record the same activities on both my Windows and Mac clients?
Not all features are available on both platforms.
How do I know if Veriato Investigator will run on the Mac computers my employees use?
Veriato Investigator will work on Mac machines with Mac OX 10.6 or higher using a 64-bit Intel processor. Learn how to find out if you have a 64-bit processor.
Will my employees be aware they are being investigated?
No. By default Veriato Investigator runs silently, but can be configured to run openly, if desired.
Where is the recorded activity stored and reviewed?
You can configure the recordings to remain on the computer being recorded and review the recordings remotely using Veriato Investigator’s Remote Viewer. Alternately, recordings can be configured to be stored on a central Data Vault computer, reviewing those recordings either from the Data Vault computer or remotely using the Remote Viewer.
Will the recordings fill up my hard drives?
If managed, no. The amount of daily disk storage required for each computer being recorded will generally only range from between 2 and 20 megabytes per day, depending upon the types of events being recorded. Should you choose to centrally store this data on the Data Vault computer, you have the option to Archive the data older than a specified age and delete the original data, preserving disk space.
