NetResident is an advanced network content monitoring application that captures, stores, analyzes, and reconstructs network events such as e-mail messages, Web pages, downloaded files, instant messages, and voice conversations. NetResident uses cutting-edge monitoring technology to capture the required data from the network, saves it to a database, reconstructs it, and displays this content in an easy-to-understand format.

While NetResident is similar to network analyzers in many respects, it focuses on high-level protocols that are used to transfer content over the Internet or LAN. With NetResident, you do not need a profound understanding of networking technologies, have to use complex packet capturing and analysis software, or dig through network packets in order to reconstruct the actual data; NetResident does all the work for you and presents the high-level content as viewed by end users in your LAN. A convenient application console presents a clear picture of all captured network events that can be searched, grouped, or sorted by different criteria.

NetResident is used by businesses to detect sensitive information leaks; by government law enforcement, security agencies, and private surveillance providers for lawful interception needs; by forensic experts to inspect evidence and gain crucial information needed for criminal investigations; and even by parents to monitor their children’s communication on the Internet.

NetResident offers many benefits to your organization. Unlike many data-loss detection solutions, NetResident can be quickly and easily deployed by the organization’s network administrator and does not require substantial changes in the existing network infrastructure or software.
