About the Safeguard product line

The One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Passwords Appliance is built specifically for use only with the Safeguard for Privileged Passwords privileged management software, which is pre-installed and ready for immediate use. The appliance is hardened to ensure the system is secured at the hardware, operating system and software levels. The hardened appliance approach protects the privileged management software from attacks while simplifying deployment and ongoing management -- and shortening the timeframe to value.

A Safeguard for Privileged Passwords virtual appliance is also available. When setting up a virtual environment, carefully consider the configuration aspects such as CPU, memory availability, I/O subsystem, and network infrastructure to ensure the virtual layer has the necessary resources available. Please consult One Identity's Product Support Policies for more information on environment virtualization.

Safeguard privileged management software suite

Safeguard privileged management software is used to control, monitor, and govern privileged user accounts and activities to identify possible malicious activities, detect entitlement risks, and provide tamper proof evidence. The Safeguard products also aid incident investigation, forensics work, and compliance efforts.

The Safeguard products' unique strengths are:

  • One-stop solution for all privileged access management needs
  • Easy to deploy and integrate
  • Unparalleled depth of recording
  • Comprehensive risk analysis of entitlements and activities
  • Thorough Governance for privileged account

The suite includes the following modules:

  • One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Passwords automates, controls and secures the process of granting privileged credentials with role-based access management and automated workflows. Deployed on a hardened appliance, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords eliminates concerns about secured access to the solution itself, which helps to speed integration with your systems and IT strategies. Plus, its user-centered design means a small learning curve and the ability to manage passwords from anywhere and using nearly any device. The result is a solution that secures your enterprise and enables your privileged users with a new level of freedom and functionality.
  • One Identity for Privileged Sessions is part of One Identity's Privileged Access Management portfolio. Addressing large enterprise needs, Safeguard for Privileged Sessions is a privileged session management solution, which provides industry-leading access control, as well as session monitoring and recording to prevent privileged account misuse, facilitate compliance, and accelerate forensics investigations.

    Safeguard for Privileged Sessions is a quickly deployable enterprise appliance, completely independent from clients and servers - integrating seamlessly into existing networks. It captures the activity data necessary for user profiling and enables full user session drill-down for forensics investigations.

  • One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Analytics integrates data from Safeguard for Privileged Sessions to use as the basis of privileged user behavior analysis. Safeguard for Privileged Analytics uses machine learning algorithms to scrutinize behavioral characteristics and generates user behavior profiles for each individual privileged user. Safeguard for Privileged Analytics compares actual user activity to user profiles in real time and profiles are continually adjusted using machine learning. Safeguard for Privileged Analytics detects anomalies and ranks them based on risk so you can prioritize and take appropriate action - and ultimately prevent data breaches.

New features

A2A service supports events for multiple accounts (804349)

Using the A2A service, an administrator can use a single signalR connection to monitor password change events for multiple accounts across multiple A2A registrations.

A signalR connection failure message is returned if any of the following occur:

  • The accounts sent in the authorization header is larger than 8K.
  • One or more of the API keys sent failed validation.
  • One or more of the API keys sent failed to match the user certificate used for authentication. This may occur across multiple A2A registrations.

Active Directory account discovery dynamic tags and dynamic groups (798532)

An Asset Administrator can:

  • Dynamically tag an account from Active Directory.
  • Add an account to a dynamic account group based on membership in an Active Directory group.
  • Add an account to a dynamic account group based on if the account is in a particular organizational unit (OU) in Active Directory.

The options to select Include objects from sub containers is available when adding an account discovery rule from Administrative Tools | Discovery | Account Discovery | Account Discovery Rule dialog. For more information, see Adding an Account Discovery rule.

Configure Web Client Inactivity Timeout (803424, 782603)

The Appliance Administrator can configure the Web Client Inactivity Timeout which is the time that has elapsed since the user made a request to the server. The minimum value is 5 minutes and the maximum value is 2880 minutes (2 days). When the timeout period is met, a message displays and the user can continue or log out. If there is no response, the user is automatically logged out. The default is 15 minutes. To configure the value, navigate to Administrative Tools | Settings | Safeguard Access | Login Control and set Web Client Inactivity Timeout.

"Other Managed" platform type (805372)

To ensure the automation environment is compliant, a System Integrator can use a generated password that is securely stored and periodically rotated.

To ensure compliance in an ultra secure environment, an Asset Administrator can manage an asset that Safeguard for Privileged Passwords cannot connect to (for example, when there is a one-way firewall).

In the Add Asset dialog under the Management tab, select the Product setting Other Managed. When selected, Safeguard for Privileged Passwords stores the password and can automatically check and change it per the profile configuration. There is no active connection or service account. The passwords are rotated internally and an event notifications is sent when the rotation is complete. Another component or piece of automation can change the password or make use of the password in the configuration files. For example, a listener can pick up the change event via the Safeguard for Privileged Passwords Application to Application (A2A) service and perform actions, as required.
