The One Identity Safeguard Appliance is built specifically for use only with the Safeguard privileged management software, which is pre-installed and ready for immediate use.

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

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 in SPS 6.0:
The classic search interface of SPS is deprecated. If you have not used the new search interface before, read about its main changes compared to the classic search.
To search in the contents of a single session, you cannot use the details > contents tab of the Search interface anymore (except for sessions recorded before the upgrade). For new sessions, download the audit trail and use the search in the Safeguard Desktop Player application. Note that you can search in the contents of audit trails from the web interface, just not for specifics within a single session.
Version 6.0.2 supports the new Safeguard Sessions Appliance 3000 and 3500 appliances. For the technical details of these appliances, see "Hardware specifications" in the Installation Guide.
LDAP and Active Directory policies can be configured more flexibly to check group memberships. Also, to help troubleshoot LDAP-related issues, detailed documentation about how SPS resolves user IDs and group memberships has been added to the documentation.
Old credential store and authentication plugins are deprecated and will not be supported in upcoming releases. For details on updating your plugins, see Upgrading plugins for One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions version 6.0.
If you want to write a new plugin for One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions, you can use the new Plugin SDK for Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS). For details, see the Plugin SDK for Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS) documentation.
