LOS ANGELES, May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ObserveIT, provider of the market's leading user session recording and auditing system, announced at Citrix Synergy™ that it is offering its software at a 50% discount from today until the end of June 2013. The offer is available to existing Citrix XenApp® Platinum edition users.
A Citrix Ready® -verified solution, ObserveIT extends Citrix SmartAuditor features (available in Citrix XenApp® Platinum edition) to Citrix XenDesktop® and Citrix XenServer®. Beyond simply acting like a virtual surveillance camera, the system also transcribes each user action into an easy-to-read summary so that it's not necessary to watch the video to know what took place. Furthermore, detailed session data is immediately available for free-text keyword searching: users can search for names of applications run, windows opened, URLs accessed, text typed/edited/selected, checkboxes clicked and much more. Every resulting search hit is linked directly to the portion of the video where that action occurred.
ObserveIT provides organizations with critical security and auditing benefits, including:
- Better end user experience/helpdesk – Immediately access video recordings, even live activity streams, of every user session to assist with helpdesk tasks.
- Easier compliance accountability – Monitor and audit local and remote user activity to satisfy PCI, HIPAA, SOX and ISO 27001 security requirements.
- Total remote vendor monitoring – Review and search remote vendor sessions to ensure that vendors are meeting their obligations and posing no risks to the organization.
- Improved IT security and early data breach detection – Custom real-time alerts and integration with SIEM/NMS systems provide early warning of both human error and malicious actions.
ObserveIT records user activities – in every application and system area – so that administrators, IT troubleshooters and auditors can replay any session, just as if someone had been standing over the user's shoulder with a video camera in hand.
"Our zero-gap recording and replay system is unique because its unique video analysis and search features make it incredibly easy to find the exact moment that an action was performed from among thousands of hours of video," explained ObserveIT COO Avi Weiss. "We are pleased to be able to offer this benefit to all Citrix customers and partners interested in extending their solution to the latest Windows releases and to VDI deployments."
ObserveIT is Citrix Ready-verified for recording and analyzing session activity in XenApp and XenDesktop environments. This verified integration ensures a reliable, full-featured user recording solution for all XenApp (any edition, not just Platinum) and XenDesktop users. ObserveIT is compatible with XenApp versions 6.5 (64-bit), 6.0 (64-bit), 5.0 (64-bit), 5.0 (32-bit) and XenDesktop versions 7, 5.5 and 5.0.
