Overtis tracks worker behaviour in browsers

Overtis' new browser add-on is designed to bring granular security controls to administrators.


Overtis has launched a browser add-on enabling IT administrators to monitor worker behaviour and enforce compliance.

The VigilancePro Web Application Manager provides granular controls and can even hide certain content on the browser, such as sensitive data or tabs.

Administrators can use the tool to manage worker controls as well, including copy and paste as well as printing, to prevent any insider threat from damaging their business.

The Overtis plug-in can also enable single sign on for users wherever they are accessing web applications.

Currently, the add-on is only compatible with Firefox and Internet Explorer, although Google Chrome and Safari versions are on the way.

The basic interface has been designed to ensure administrators don't find themselves overwhelmed, but Overtis chief executive (CEO) Ed Macnair told IT PRO the firm was planning to "sex-up" the control screen.

To make administering the product even quicker, Macnair explained how businesses could simply drag their worker directory into the add-on, claiming it would take around an hour to transfer 5,000 users over.

"Traditional web parameters have disappeared," Macnair added.

"With the consumerisation of IT it's all changed it's the evolution of the endpoint. The iPad was the next big evolution in four to six months you saw it in the enterprise."

Businesses will be required to pay $10 (6.23) per user, per month to access the VigilancePro Web Application Manager.
