ObserveIT v5.5: What’s New
Limited config & features.
All enterprise features.
When data is archived, it is still available for full audit review. Textual metadata still will show up in all audit diaries and reports. Then, if you wish to actually replay a session, you have the option to restore this specific recording only.
Session Privacy: Dual Password Protection for PlaybackObserveIT now allows you to specify a second password (not managed by the ObserveIT administrator) that is required in order to replay the video of a user session.
This new double password feature ensures both audit completeness and employee privacy. In the most typical usage, Management (via ObserveIT Administrator) holds the main ObserveIT password, and a union rep or legal counsel holds the second password. This then satisfies the most stringent privacy protection regulations, including BDSG (Germany), CNIL (France), DPD 95/46/EC (EU), Human Rights Act (UK). Granular deployment allows textual audit logs to be accessed by compliance officers (without the second password), but video replay requires employee counsel authorization (both passwords)
