Video Playback and Screenshot Capture
Intergaurd believes screenshots are the most powerful way of collecting data as they provide you with the necessary context to evaluate certain concerns. Intergaurd offers three types of screenshots:
Alert Word Screenshots
The software takes a screenshot when a keyword is typed or viewed on the screen. You can select as many keywords as you need, and Intergaurd will automatically screenshot when one is detected. Alert word screenshot is most ideal for protecting key files that carry sensitive data with labels such as ‘client list,’ ‘pricing,’ ‘confidential’; it is also used to protect against harassment in the workplace in chats or emails.
The software takes continuous screenshots of employees’ workstations at intervals you set. Continuous screenshots are mainly used when conducting an investigation, and the software will store these screenshots in a video playback style as they are juxtaposed against the activity log with details of the actions to facilitate the search.
Smart Camera Screenshots
The software screenshots everything for selected websites and programs you select. Smart camera screenshots allow you to select key websites or applications to be screenshot at intervals you set, and the software allows you to search through the screenshots that are specifically related to the selected apps.
Intergaurd offers a smart alert system with a task manager. The software makes it easier for you to take action when a defined activity occurs. Real-time alerts features include:
- Instant alerts by email
- Color-coded flagging
- Alert task manager

Email monitoring provides you with tamper-proof evidence of any malicious insiders trying to infiltrate important data from your business. Intergaurd email monitoring software records and alerts all email and email attachment activity.
Anomaly detection alerts when an employee’s email activity is unusual such as having an above-average number of attachments or an unusually high amount of webmail activity. Email monitoring allows you to capture:

File Activity Monitoring
File Activity Monitoring allows you to protect your most sensitive files from employee misuse. The software allows you to easily monitor and track all file activity events processed by your employees, such as copying, deleting, editing, uploading, emailing, and printing.
The file activity monitoring software is easy to use and provides you with understandable insight into activity, real-time alerts of suspicious access, and the power to block access to select files and folders from select users.
Such tracked activities also include files that are:
- Attached to email
- Uploaded to USB
- Uploaded to cloud
The software provides you with automatic monitoring that tracks everything that happens on the employee’s endpoint even without being connected to the network, as the software is a file-based solution.
Real-time alerts provide you with automatic email alerts that are triggered by pre-defined file activities. You can review each flagged alert within the context of the user’s activity session to determine whether there is a threat or not.
Additionally, you get to set custom file monitoring policies according to the team, group, or individual risk level. For instance, you will want to be notified when an IT employee is attempting to access or upload an HR-related document, but not when HR is doing so.
