The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs recently purchased Wavecrest Computing's Internet monitoring software, Cyfin Reporter, to manage employee Web use. The VA selected Cyfin Reporter because it provides accurate reports, requires minimal administration, and easily adapts to changes in the network environment.

With flexible monitoring and reporting capabilities, Cyfin Reporter gives management a clear view into employees' Web activity. Its reports offer high and low-level content-categorized reports covering the activity of a single user, a specific department or the entire organization.

Cyfin Reporter's accurate Web-use reports distinguish it from the competition. It differentiates a user's specific click actions from automatically downloaded hits (banners, ads, audio, etc.) that can distort measurements of users' online activity. Dennis McCabe, VP of Business Development at Wavecrest Computing, said that when developing Cyfin Reporter, "providing accurate and actionable data that organizations could rely on was a top priority for Wavecrest."

Cyfin's benefits don't stop at accuracy. It is compatible with a wide range of networks and 95 different logfile formats. It supports multiple logfile formats and locations within a single network and can easily adapt to changes and read new devices placed into the network infrastructure. This means that Cyfin's Web-use reports are always in the same format regardless of the configured logfile types. The majority of its features can also be automated, thus decreasing the amount of time IT spends on Web-use management.

Cyfin Reporter's flexibility--along with its intuitive report design and automatic abuse detection--makes it very easy to administer. These same features make it easy for managers to quickly spot problem areas related to network security, legal liability, and workforce productivity.
