The Audit Log allows merchants to monitor activities undertaken by their teams to minimize the risk of fraudulent actions, money laundering actions, or actions that might cause reputational or any other damage.
For this purpose, an Audit Log report is introduced.
The Audit Log is a record that displays the merchant's team's actions within the Verifone Central dashboard. The Audit Log report shows the activities performed by a user that results in data change.
Audit Logs are useful whether you want to manage cases, perform user activity analysis, or conduct a specific survey.
Only users with a Merchant Admin role can access the Audit Log section in Verifone Central. Events are recorded only when the users are logged in to Verifone Central.
The Verifone Audit Log aims to improve companies’ security and risk management.
Using the Audit Log functionality, merchants will be able to:
- Access and find out the precise reasons for activities that affected specific operations or procedures
- Keep the company safe with full visibility over daily activities made by users
- Gain insight into fraudulent or unauthorized activities with the potential to damage the company’s operations and/or reputation
