how does it work?

Our secure and efficient data collection
and delivery process is made up of several parts:
The Agent, The Database and The Application.

The agent

The entire data cycle begins with the ActivTrak Agent which is a robust and reliable piece of software with a low system profile. Each ActivTrak account has its own uniquely coded Agent which does the following:

  • Contains encrypted details about where it should send data back to your ActivTrak account
  • Collects data and executes responses to user activity while running unnoticed in the background
  • Senses mouse and keyboard movement tracking the active window of the monitored user’s computer
  • Logs details about the program in use like title, URL, executable, and description
  • Collects lots of other pieces of information, such as activity duration, IP addresses, date, and time
  • During offline periods, it stores all data and screenshots locally and reports it back to the cloud when a secure connection is re-established

The database

Data is collected and sent through a secure channel to a set of backend servers in the Google cloud.

  • Information about web and application usage are stored in a database dedicated to each account
  • The databases do most of the heavy-lifting of aggregating the data exactly the way the user requests to quickly return the results to display
  • The database storing this information is optimized
    to provide lightning fast search results
  • The entire experience, from login to viewing of the dashboard and reports feels instantaneous
  • For larger accounts, this data is also written
    to a separate cloud-based distributed database
  • The databases can dynamically scale to process very large amounts of data quickly, providing quick responses for even the largest accounts

The application

The ActivTrak application acts as the command center to view all the screenshots, and data insights collected from an account’s Agents in a simple-to-use UI.

  • The application talks to a separate backend server in the cloud that receives the requests from the user
  • Get clear insights displayed in charts and graphs vs. viewing in a database or spreadsheet
  • The app doesn’t just display data. It is here you configure account settings, invite fellow team members, create alarms, and customize ActivTrak
