Whenever a user logs in into a SQL Server database, there should be a legitimate business need behind their actions. Any unauthorized access can signal privilege abuse or identity theft, which can lead to a data breach or other damage none of us wants to deal with. To prevent such security issues, you need to do more than simply monitor database activity and manage passwords. You also need to keep abreast of SQL Server login history with an audit trail that delivers comprehensive details about every change and access event in your SQL Server databases.
Simply recording SQL Server login history is not enough to ensure system security. You need complete visibility that provides insight into all activity in your databases, including not just the logins themselves, but what actions were performed, when and by whom, so you can spot privilege abuse or other aberrant activity before a breach occurs.
