Inactive User Accounts Controls - Administrator Accounts
Application parameter settings that do not automatically disable and/or remove user accounts after a specified period of inactivity may result in unauthorized access, modification, destruction, and/or disclosure of confidential information.
Ability to see perimeter server status on SSP (i.e. monitioring - running/stopped)
