RSA Product/Service Type: SA Security Analytics Server
RSA Version/Condition: 10.3.x, 10.4.x
IssueIt is a common security policy practice to have a restriction on the use of default user/service accounts and requires them to be disabled or renamed. In Security Analytics, the default admin user account would fall into this policy. 
ResolutionCurrently the default Security Analytics Admin user account is static and the name is unchangable. Therefore there is currently no way to rename, disable or remove this account within Security Analytics. However the password can be changed to any complex password required by the customer's security policy.
