Does any one have any feedback/ideas on creating a Security account on servers for the purpose of using scanning tools?
Thank you

Good question. I always recommend that you create a security group and assign that group the permissions that are required (most of the applications require local administrator-level privileges).

Create your domain security accounts and place them in the security group with permissions. Then create a GPO which limits membership in the Restricted Security Group.

Pretty good article here telling you how to accomplish that with Active Directory's GPO:
