How to Monitor Employees without Being Monitored Yourself 0 J. Dunlap I work for a medium sized manufacturing company that cannot afford to have data leakage.  We installed SpectorPro to monitor employee computer use and were troubled to realize upon requesting technical support from SpectorSoft that the support operator could access my SpectorPro settings remotely.  This was a shock and has us worried about what other data SpectorSoft can collect from our company computers with SpectorPro. Does anyone have experience with this and know what data they collect and how often?  What do IT pros do in this type of situation?  Is there another type of employee monitoring software which doesn't have this type of backdoor for the vendor to access? We need to monitor employees to prevent the leakage of intellectual property and other reasons, but we don't want our data to leak into the hands of some software vendor like SpectorSoft.  I'm sure this isn't the first time this problem has arisen; please assist.
