keyloggers by design are stealthy. check cables for any additonal items. Check the keyboard(s) to see if they have been tampered with.  You want to do a full forensic trace? I hope this customer has a lot of money to support this piece of mind.

other than changing all admin passwords NOW if not done already .. remove that users account or disable it (remove it) and running sysinternals rootkit revealer and malware bytes on every server.

malware bytes will only find known keyloggers .. if this admin is smart he compiled his own.. check the autostarts on each server (sysinternals autoruns) and disable any suspicious items. If you find anything notify the authorities

Can check out rootkit razor which primarily surfaced stealthy trojan and backdoor
 Which allow callback to remote control the infected machine.

We are looking at potential insider threat where remanent of doing can bring big impact. If the staff was having privilege to server and critical appl admin, suggest to revoke all associated right, credentials. detect for anomaly in network security log like brute forcing login or admin machine slowing down, making silent listening ports, etc.

Importantly, have mobile storage used by staff or within the critical server t ok be checked and if possible, formatted on the safe side. Better safe than sorry.
