All the activities done by the authorized accounts on the business network needs to be reported to the security administrators for security scan. A daily report should be generated for scrutiny that ensures a complete overview of operating activities. This helps keep track of the logins made, processes carried out and track all the undue activities within 24 hours. A complete overview of the privilege account provides for greater IT security and compliance.
