Capturing detailed actions of privileged users is critical in today’s business environment that is driving cost efficiencies through IT outsourcing and managing security and compliance, which require organizations to document what users actually do with the privileges and rights granted to them. Traditional approaches, such as log files, cannot fully meet these requirements. For a full accounting of what specific actions were taken on a specific system, at a specific time, by a specific user, there is no substitute for a high-fidelity recording of individual user sessions. Organizations need to ensure that every privileged session can be audited across their extended enterprise creating a high level of visibility on UNIX, Linux and Windows systems whether in the data center or in cloud computing environments.
