Audit for unauthorized GW access

Is there a tool/app that audits unauthorized access to a GW8 system?

more from an app that is outside of the GW system itself.

example - if someone was using the Gwava Reveal product (or ???) without IT's knowledge to access GW email accounts

thanks

Any of those applications would require a system administrator to set
them up as a trusted application in order to access people's mailboxes,
so really it shouldn't be possible without IT having some involvement at
some point.

For Reveal:

Now if you have given them access already and you want to know when they
are running it, that I'm not certain of, but I'm fairly sure reveal logs
such attempts.

All logins are logged at the POA. Does not matter if you login via thick Win32 client, webaccess, IMAP, SOAP. Even trusted application logins are recorded. For example:

21:26:03 411 C/S Login Windows ::GW Id=Cenobite :: 10.10.10.10 Trusted App=HELL RAISER

These external apps require a trusted key to be set up ( by someone with admin rights ).
