Benefits From Monitoring Employees` Desktops By Using RHUB And Proper Way Of Doing It

January 8th, 2015

Monitoring employees` desktop computer activities has been an often practice in many companies. There are some positive reasons why to do it, as the Internet access brings many risks that can potentially harm the companies. Some researches show that almost eighty percent of the employees use their work computers for personal and private reasons. If it is done occasionally, it cannot harm the company but if it as an often practice then the workers may become less productive. It also can lead to losing some sensitive work related information, or catching dangerous viruses that can damage the computer and its data.

RHUB is a good way to observe your employees, and to record and control all of your employees’ activity on their computers. This way you will prevent potential damage of losing sensitive and confidential information. With RHUB you can even monitor your children`s activity on the computers.

Monitoring your employees` desktops is beneficial as it ensures that your employees are not putting the company at big risk by viewing or downloading questionable files. Also, by monitoring the activities you can protect your company from hacker attacks and stealing of personal information. Hackers usually attack the networks of the companies, seeking personal information and financial data. If you monitor the computer activity, you can prevent or reduce the risk of the network attacks.

By monitoring the computer activity of your employee you can also see whether he does something that may sabotage your company. If you suspect that he is a problematical person or does not act well on his workplace, then by monitoring his activity you can possibly prevent loss of confidential information. You will also prevent cyber attacks, and will collect information about the degree of the risk your company is being exposed to. By collecting this information, you can create risk management system that will act accordingly in the future.

RHUB efficiently monitors employees` desktops and you can easily control and record the activity of your workers. How does RHUB work? You just log in to an employee computer as an administrator user. After that you should install the TurboMeeting client and schedule a meeting by a remote access. Check the “computer” field and name it like your employee, then log out. From that moment on, you can easily monitor, control and record the activity on that particular computer at any time and from any location that has an internet access.

The ID and password are making sure that the security is at the highest level. If you make an appointment for an internal meeting by checking “only people from my network”, the security will be further raised by the firewall. This will block anyone from outside the firewall to access the computer.

No matter what industry does your company belong, you should always invest and make sure that the online security is at the highest level. By using RHUB and taking the advantages that it provides, you can ensure your employees` productivity and limit the risks for your company.

RHUB Web Conferencing: Increasing Productivity for Every Employee

November 22nd, 2013

Are your employees just showing up to work to collect a paycheck? Sadly, the answer is probably “yes.” According to Gallup’s “State of the Workplace Report,” released last summer, only 30% of the people interviewed said they were fully engaged with their jobs. Fifty-two percent of people said they were disengaged, and another 18% said they were actively disengaged.

How much does this matter? A lot. The same Gallup report says that engaged employees are more productive and produce work that’s of better quality. It states, “Organizations in the top decile of engagement outperform their peers by 147% in earnings per share, and have 90% better growth trend than their competition.”

Does this have anything to do with web conferencing? Surprisingly enough, it does. The cost of web conferencing means many employees are deprived of this critical tool. If you look at what most web conference providers charge, initially it doesn’t seem like much. One of the most popular web conferencing solutions charges $49 per month per host. Actually, when you see the annual fee—$468—that does seem like a fairly significant amount. But you may not notice that it’s even worse—that is per host. Using this provider could make the cost of multiple users prohibitive.

To make a bad situation worse, with employee turnover and tens to thousands of employees with changing passwords, manual management of each user profile at a host provider server becomes impossible. LDAP integration for auto-deployment is impossible because of security policies. No organization can expose its LDAP server to service providers outside the firewall.

The upshot? Most users of hosted web services subscribe for less than 10% of their employees. This creates an employee ghetto, with only a fraction of employees enjoying all the advantages that web conferences provide. And to return to employee engagement—if you want your employees to feel fully engaged, you need to give them all the tools they need to do their jobs, and you need to make them feel fully part of company culture.

RHUB web conferencing uses a floating license with no limitations on the number of users. No $49 per employee per month–with RHUB, everyone in your organization can use web conferencing at no extra cost. And with RHUB it’s easy—and secure—to deploy web conferencing to everyone. Using LDAP integration automates deployment. You don’t need to input every employee profile. Just set up one user credential, and all employees can start using web conferencing immediately.

Web conferencing is a cornerstone of real-time collaboration. It reduces the time wasted in travel for face-to-face meetings and makes your employees more productive and efficient. It’s a tool all employees need to have. It’s like the telephone—fundamental to efficiently running a modern office.

Don’t deprive 90% of your staff of this valuable aid. Every employee deserves access to the productivity tools he or she needs to succeed. Give us a call and let us tell you how web conferencing can increase employee engagement. Our web appliance can help your employees excel, and not just some of them. RHUB is for everyone.

A Few Considerations for Choosing an Effective Web Conferencing Solution.

September 24th, 2013

The lion’s share of Web conferencing users are currently relying on hosted services for their Webcasting solutions, primarily because they aren’t aware that better options exist. But first, let’s give credit where credit’s due, hosted services are generally easy to deploy, and they come in handy when you need to conduct a live broadcast on-the-go, while you’re away from the office.

Why There’s a Better Way Than Hosted Services

But hosted solutions aren’t nearly as secure as the two on-premise alternatives described below. One reason for this is because hosted services are deployed over the Internet, which leaves your company’s video Webcast content susceptible to the wiles of the Internet underworld. Now, we don’t mean to sound like alarmists, but just consider the logic of the following question: If a safer solution exists for sharing your Web conferences, wouldn’t you prefer to use that option over something less secure? Naturally.

Plus, let’s not forget that hosted solutions cost over time. As long as you’re subscribed to such a service, then you’re going to continue paying its ongoing costs. This sort of perpetual expense might not be a concern for every company, but we suspect that every smart business weighs the difference between upfront costs versus long-term service charges. Without question, the initial investment of an on-premise solution is much more cost-effective over time.

On-Premise Solutions: Better Security for a Better Price

On-premise software or an on-premise appliance both give you much more security than a hosted service. These on-premise options operate behind client-company firewalls, giving you another barrier of protection. So, what we’re talking about here is the difference between “private clouds,” which exist internally within a company, and “public clouds” or the wild and wonderful World Wide Web.

Here at RHUB, it’s no secret that we believe on-premise software is a step in the right direction, but we still believe the best option for Web conferencing is an on-premise appliance, which is what we offer with our RHUB 6-in-1 Web Conferencing Appliance. In just one appliance, your company gets Web conferencing, remote support, audio conferencing, video conferencing, remote access and Webinar capabilities. Why do we prefer an on-premise application over on-premise software? RHUB feels that the two biggest problems with on-premise software are its high upfront cost, and it is notoriously difficult to deploy.

RHUB Believes in Making Your Life Easier

Who said Webcast technologies can’t be easy? Why shouldn’t your business Webcasts be simple? RHUB believes you should save your time and energy for more pertinent “heavy lifting,” such as landing that big account or having smooth-sailing, live Webcast face-time with your family while you’re away on business. You’re far too busy — and your time is too valuable — to be burdened with a steep learning curve.

These are solely considerations of your own time, but what about the productivity of your overall organization? In 2010, a study called “The Work Design Collaborative” found that the time-consuming learning curve for implementing new technological programs took most organizations between 15 to 18 months before they began to see their productivity return. In today’s hungry business climate, that’s far too long to be out-of-commission. Obviously, an easy-to-use alternative (such as RHUB’s 6-in-1 appliance) can significantly reduce this learning curve and ease the burdens on your company’s time and money.

The Name You’ll Remember (Precisely Because You’re Not Forced to Hear It in Every Meeting)

Does it make sense for your company to pay money to create a Webcast recording only to hear the intrusive, name-dropping
advertisements of the Web conferencing service provider? It doesn’t make sense to RHUB, either. We enable you to brand your meetings with the name of your organization — not ours.

So, if you’re tired of paying relentless service charges or wrestling with a less secure system that’s difficult to use, then your friends at RHUB welcome you to prowl on over to our Web site to learn more: RHUB
