HomeGuard Professional is an easy to use activity monitoring tool for tracking and controlling the use of computers in home and office networks.
HomeGuard records web activity and automatically blocks all adult and inappropriate content in websites in addition to customizable website block and allow lists and filtering based on file types (e.g.: exe s or online flash games). It also records detailed reports on usage of programs including active usage , run , bandwidth used, mouse clicks and keystrokes typed in each program with the option to block or limit certain programs or games. Plus screen capture, periodically or based on specific activities, chat and email monitoring and filtering, printer and USB devices monitoring and blocking, Internet restrictions, network connection monitoring and filtering, email notifications and more.
HomeGuard runs, by default, in stealth mode completely hidden and undetectable, however, it can be set to show warnings to users when anything is blocked. Either way it is uninstallable, unclosable and cannot be bypassed using proxy servers.
Porn filtering based on websites content not just names
Automatic content filtering of websites, chat messages and email for pornographic or inappropriate content or for a list of words defined by you. Internet content filtering cannot be circumvented by the use of proxy servers, all Internet traffic is filtered regardless of ports or destination, all while keeping the use of CPU and memory to a minimum through the use of advanced search and identification algorithms, thus adding very little to no overhead to computer and Internet speed.
Websites blocking by name or URL, blacklists and whitelists
Block access to websites in a predefined 'block' list. Or allow access only to websites on a 'allow' list, blocking all other websites. Recorded details include spent on each website and which program was used to visit the website. As in content/porn filtering above, the use of proxy servers to defeat websites blocking won't work.
and event based screenshots capture
Take screenshots at predefined intervals and s of day and days of week. By default HomeGuard will take screenshots every 10 minutes everyday but can be set to take screenshots as often as every 2 seconds. It can also take screenshots when a website is visited, a keyword is found, a chat message/instant message or Email is sent or received, a program is started, a file is printed or it can record screenshots of blocked events only.
Restrict programs/games usage s or completely block a program
Set the s at which each program can be used and for how long. Or completely block certain programs. This feature is designed with excessive/addictive gaming in mind. Blocked programs cannot be opened by renaming or moving the program, once a program is added to a blocking list its signature is computed and saved and it will be recognized no matter where it is on the hard disk or what its name is.
Quietly record all keystrokes typed including usernames, passwords, chat messages and emails along with the of typing for each snt, program the keystrokes were typed in and window title at the of typing. HomeGuard keylogger includes full support for languages using non Latin scripts (Unicode).
Web search monitoring and blocking
View words searched for in all search ees and block porn content in search results by enforcing Safesearch.
Restrict Internet and computer usage s
Set the of day and/or days of week at which the computer and Internet can be used. restrictions cannot be manipulated by chag system , by default HomeGuard blocks system chag for all users and you can define a list of users to allow to change .
Detailed program usage statistics
Record total running of programs and actual spent on each program, how many words and characters typed and how many s the mouse was clicked in each program, total bytes sent and received by each program and more.
Web files content type blocking
This feature is rather radical but can prove useful...Blocks Internet content by type, for example you can bock all online video and flash (e.g. PornTube and the like but also YouTube, Metacafe, Vimeo...etc) other web page elements will still show (unless they were of blocked types too) but all videos will be blank. Use the built in list of types (includes: exe s, scripts, videos..) or add a custom (MIME) type.
Network monitoring and blocking
Allows monitoring and blocking of individual Internet connections by port and IP addresses. Can be used to block certain Internet protocols (e.g. Peer to peer file sharing.) HomeGuard also attempts to detect protocol type of the connection and will show detailed statistics of the connection's duration and bandwidth used.
USB storage media monitoring and blocking
Monitor and optionally block removable devices like USB thumb drives, external hard disks...etc useful for preventing sharing of pornographic files or protecting your computer against viruses and spyware transmitted on thumb drives.
File monitoring and blocking
