They constantly work to discover new product tests and refine old ones - and recently they updated the review about StaffCop in the category "Employee Monitoring Software". The previous review was released back in 2017, we've added a lot of new functions to our product since that time and some of them got into this review update.
StaffCop got 4 stars editor's rating with the following bottomline: "StaffCop Enterprise is an thorough employee monitoring solution with a rich selection of tools. It enables powerful surveillance, data gathering and reporting, though it still requires on-premises installation."
And this conclusion is very precise!
At this particular moment we provide only on-premises type of installtion, no cloud option available. StaffCop Enterprise was designed to fit best security practices, that's why we focused on the on-premises type of installation:
- All the collected data is stored within the customer's infrastracture
- StaffCop (or any other third party) doesn't have access to customer's data
- This type of installation better helps to comply with GDPR, PCI-DSS and other standards
- StaffCop can work in closed networks (wihout internet connection)
To crown it all, StaffCop Enterprise is based on Linux-based OS - the type of OS better fitting for servers due to the higher level of sustainability. So, excluding the cloud-based type of installation, StaffCop Enterprise can be installed on:
However, we can fully agree that there is a demand for clous-based service, especially among companies in SMB sector which just don't have server capabilities or/and manpower with IT expertise to administrate Linux-based systems. Our team is working on a cloud-based solution based on StaffCop Enterprise, that will unite its sustainability with the ease-of-use provided by cloud-based services. According to our most optimistic forecast, it's expected in the early 2021.
