This update is a culmination of enhancements and new features including the following :
- Portable Drive Logs
We now detect when any portable drive is being used on the computer and record a log of when it is detected. This is especially useful for seeing when thumb drives are being used, but includes any 'portable' drives. In conjunction with this we improved the logging of file activities which occur on portable drives.
- Clipboard Logs
The clipboard is what Windows uses when you copy/paste content. We now record a log of all text copied to the clipboard along with the computer name, username, date/time, the Window title it happened, and the actual contents. You can view the contents of the clipboard by expanding it with a button similar to how the keystroke logs work.
- Create Charts
This page allows you to create custom graphical charts using the date/time range, computer selection, user selection, and chart type options. You also have various download options and the ability to print the chart as well. For now we have basic chart types listed, but plan on expanding this to more chart types in the future.
- Improved Website Logging
Some enhancements have been made to website logging which will make it operate more smoothly and with better performance.
- Improved Lockout Feature
Previously when a user was locked out of the computer due to time restrictions the desktop would be locked down to prevent usage. Now, the user is logged out of Windows.
- Internet Connection Logic Improved
We improved the behavior of SentryPC when there is no Internet connection available to handle unique situations that may come up. In short, should your Internet be disconnected or not available for some reason SentryPC will 'start up' as normal shortly after the Internet comes back.
We have made enhancements to file logging along with minor optimizations to overall operation. This is a recommended update for all users.
We have added details to all filtered website entries in your account so you know what category caused the block or if it was one of your own custom filters that was triggered. Along with this we have improved language support as well as other minor internal enhancements. This is a recommended update for all users.
We have made enhancements to keystroke logging, keystroke filtering, and screenshot recording. This is a recommended update for all users.
We have made enhancements to web filtering and corrected an issue which affected some users. This is a recommended update for all users.
The initial 'startup' of SentryPC has been optimized for enhanced functionality. While you will not notice anything different we still highly recommend updating your current installations to this release.
Various enhancements have been made to the overall operation of SentryPC. While these changes are 'behind the scenes', and you will probably notice no difference, we highly recommend updating your current installations to this release.
An 'adult' website filtering category has been added. You can also test domain names from the category filtering page to see if they are listed in any categories or not. We have also corrected an issue where custom filters would not take precedence over category filtering in some cases.
Minor enhancements have been made to content filtering for better overall operation.
We have changed screenshot logging to always recorded the entire desktop screen. Prior to this version you may have noticed only the 'active' part of the desktop was recorded. Enhancements were also made to the upgrade process.
This minor update adds enhancements to the 'locking' of users/computers when their time has expired.
This minor update adds support for Microsoft's latest web browser, Edge, which is bundled with the Windows 10 operating system. Current users can update at any time by logging into your account and downloading the new version — updates are always free!
Minor enhancements have been made to both file logging activity and the automatic startup operation of SentryPC itself during Windows bootup/login. As always, all current users are recommended to upgrade to the latest version available. You can download the latest version at any time by logging into your online account.
This is a major update as we have completely overhauled the software — it is now entirely cloud-based. Everything from viewing logs, changing settings, setting filters, and more is done remotely through your online cloud account. We are very happy with the release and our new format will allow for further updates and additions on a more regular basis.
We have also changed to a subscription pricing plan. One of the main reason we made this change was so we could eliminate the need for software upgrades. Now, active subscriptions can download the latest software version at any time from within their online account and upgrade fees are a thing of the past.
If you are a 2.x user we highly recommend upgrading to the new version. We are offering 50% off your first year for 2.x users.
This minor update adds changes to the installation process. If you are a current user there is no need to reinstall or use this update.
This minor update adds the ability to redirect blocked websites to the homepage url as well as other minor updates.
This minor update fixes some logging/blocking issues with the latest Google Chrome web-browser release. Additional updates have also been added for a better user experience.
