Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer payment network. Bitcoin operates without a central authority or bank, relying on the individual users to both generate income and track money. Bitcoin revenue is generated by 'mining'. This is a CPU-intensive operation which typically runs 24/7. This client is currently mining. 

Ensure that such behavior is in alignment with corporate policies and guidelines.

The dashboard and its components are available in the SecurityCenter 4.7 Dashboard app feed, an app store of dashboards, reports, and assets. The dashboard requirements are:
