Monitor users website traffic


One of our clients has a user he's suspicious of browsing social media consistently during work-hours. He's wanting to catch this user-out with logs/reports of the the internet traffic. How would we go about doing this? Did a quick look around, is the FortiAnalyzer the best tool for the job?

If you have a fgt firewall - enable Device Detection on the internal interface that this user is connected through.  After this, you can use FortiView to inspect and drill down to this user's device (session) traffic and see what web sites he is visiting.

Say thanks to him that he doesn't visit Porn Hub. As a project manager, I had some employees under me.  One of them was crazy, visiting this website during work-hours.

Lymaner, that sounds really fun and scary, actually. I think he knew you were watching him, so I think he did that on purpose. Still, I guess you've already fired him, lol. Btw, it's been more than 2 years since then, so what happened to those workers who spent a lot of time on SM during working hours? Btw, I also had a guy who procrastinated a lot. Eventually, I fired him because I could do nothing about his laziness. We were working on a new ip detection service similar to this ip proxy detection service. We didn't need any lazy people, so I fired him. That's it. So, I'll be waiting for your reply.
