Recently there are many data breaches, when employees copy some sensitive data from the computer systems like databases, customer data, financial reports etc.
My sales team (6 people) uses ACT! Premium 2009 (11.0) in their work. I wonder if it's possible to log/track the following event in ACT!: when user creates database backup (File menu -> Backup -> Database). Is there any way to audit such activity in ACT!? Can I check that user A created database backup 2 days ago?

Yes, you can view a log of backup activity (and many other types of events) for the database through the ACT! Diagnostics (ACTDiag) utility:
- From the machine hosting the database, go to the Windows Start button, click Run or got to the Search box, and type actdiag
- When ActDiag opens, click Databases > Audit Logs
- Select your database from the dropdown
- From the list of event types, choose Maintenance-Database Backup
- You can save/print the log by clicking the Export button
Note: Effective 6/1/13, Sage no longers provides support for the Act! software. This is now provided by Swiftpage.
