One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions Product Notification

Product Release

New Product Version Release

One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions 5.8.0


One Identity is excited to announce a new version of One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions is now available.

Look what's new:

  • Central search across clusters: adds the possibility to search all session data recorded by all notes in the cluster on a single node
  • Detecting script usage with Privileged Analytics: it is now possible to detect user accounts that show highly periodic and repetitive behavior that is likely the result of scripted activity
  • Credential store support for the TN3270 protocol: Safeguard for Privileged Sessions can now be configured to check out passwords and play them in during a connection using the TN3270 protocol
  • Integrate with One Identity Total Privileged Access Management (TPAM): to checkout passwords and inject into sessions without showing the password to the user
  • SSH daemon log ingestion: send event logs from SSHD services and the login and logout events will be processed to be shown as sessions alongside the recordings made by SPS

Important Notes:

  • If upgrading from 5.3.x (5 F3) or earlier, update your external indexers and the Desktop Player.
  • It is no longer possible to install Safeguard for Privileged Sessions on hardware with less than 4 GB RAM. At least 8 GB is strongly recommended in production use.
  • Database upgrade after first startup when upgrading from 5.3.x (5 F3) or earlier will run in the background and can run for several hours.
  • Depreciation: Screen content search will not be available for sessions indexed by the old Audit Player.
  • Pyramid hardware is not supported since version 5.1.0 (5 F1). Do not install 5.7.0 if you are running on Pyramid hardware.
  • LDAP/AD group membership evaluation changes: a user's group membership is determined by querying only the relevant groups configured for the connection from the LDAP/AD server, instead of getting all groups of a given user. See details and possible workarounds here
