A. Concern about unauthorized access   What if you notice multiple sessions running at the same time? From the Security & Compliance Module, you can check Concurrent Sessions and IP addresses with a single click. Another click brings you to the specific details about user, session, ip address, and transactions. Using the Geolocation page, quickly identify whether you have transactions originating from disparate geographies, which would indicate a password compromise or sharing. The geolocation data can also reassure that the overlapping sessions are reasonable.
