InterGuard is right for you if…

you know what features you need and are willing to pay separately for each of them. For example, mobile device monitoring, VDI/terminal server monitoring, Active Directory support, data loss prevention (DLP) support etc. While this add-on based pricing might be cost effective to customers who know what they want, it might become cost prohibitive to businesses in need of additional modules down the line.

Pricing aside, InterGuard has a very capable employee monitoring solution offering most if not all features available from market leaders like Teramind and Veriato. It can monitor all the day-to-day user activities such as file sharing, emails, printing, keystrokes etc. It also has a screen capture feature though unlike Teramind, the session player does not have any remote control, live playback, input freeze capabilities. InterGuard has impressive reporting capabilities too. Functionality wise it is similar to Teramind’s BI Reporting tools. For example, both allows you to create custom reports with drag and drop widgets, intuitive visualization tools and various data export options.

Teramind is right for you if…

you need a solution for all your employee monitoring needs in a single product. In addition to user activity monitoring, Teramind comes with insider threat detection, behavior analytics and data loss prevention features. The solution can be deployed on Cloud, On-Premise and Private Cloud (e.g. AWS, Azure etc.). The pricing is similar to InterGuard’s core subscription plans. However, you will get more for your dollar.

Teramind can monitor virtually all user activity including a few data points not usually available in other, more expensive products (e.g. audio recording). Some of its other advanced features include: automated data discovery and classification, OCR, visual policy and rules engine, live video and RDP (remote desktop control). A combination of these features and great customer support – has contributed to Teramind’s rave reviews and established it as a formidable player in the industry. Most recently the company has launched some new features such as time tracking, mobile apps and powerful business intelligence dashboard to make it easy to monitor remote teams effectively.
