The Challenge: Monitoring Citrix environment and user activity

Canal Insurance has a number of systems to monitor. Citrix servers, SharePoint, General Ledger, and financial software are just some of them. Citrix is often used for remote work, especially when there’s a power outage or severe weather that prevent employees from coming in to work. There was an intense need for detailed reporting on user activity while using XenApp. The management was determined to find out who was actually working and who was taking his lunch break a little too seriously

“If you need to monitor Citrix or RDS environments, SysKit Monitor is the best and one of the most cost-effective ways to do that.”

– Faye Jasman, Senior IT Applications Analyst, Canal Insurance Company


Faye trialed SysKit Monitor and after the download, she was convinced it was the best tool for the job. As a result of acquiring SysKit Monitor there was a significant decrease in users’ inactivity. Employees are more dedicated to their work when they know they are being observed, and management gained a quality support system for corporate control.
