About the Safeguard product line

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 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.

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 Safeguard 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

New features in SPS version: 6.7:

Adding custom fields to the card view

In card view, you can add additional search fields to the Search interface. This allows quick visualization of your preferred fields from the main page of the Search interface for each session.

Integrity test during boot time

During boot, SPS performs an integrity check and displays if a firmware is tainted or corrupted.

Viewing session details for data recorded by SPP

From the Search interface, you can now view session details for data recorded by SPP.

Viewing encrypted screenshots

You can now view encrypted screenshots in the Search interface by uploading the necessary encryption keys to your keystore. SPS does not store your encryption keys but your keys are now stored in your browser.

Quick way to access each session from the PDF output of reports

From the PDF output of reports, you can now quickly access each session on the Search interface.

Figure 1: Reporting > Reports — Accessing sessions from the PDF output

Selecting a keyboard layout for the subtitle in RDP and ICA trails

For RDP and ICA trails, you can select a keyboard layout depending on the language used in the trail and recreate the subtitle of the trail.

Using an SRV record for the location of the LDAP server

When you configure the location of the LDAP server, that is, the IP address or hostname and the port number, you can now use a Service record (SRV record), which is a type of information record in the DNS that maps the name of a service to the DNS name of the server.

Other improvements
  • Algorithm settings in SPS have been extended with the host key algorithm to comply with current security standards.

  • Related to Safeguard for Privileged Passwords (SPP): You can now use SPP to search in the contents of the audit trails for trails created and indexed with Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS).

  • You can now check and report if there were indexed audit trails where the Optical Character Recognition (OCR) engine failed.

  • During agent-forwarding, the Ed25519 and ECDSA user keys are also accepted.

  • During an SSH session, a key exchange is now done regularly and automatically.

  • In RDP, do not use the @ character as an inband data separator but use alternative characters, for example, the % character.

  • The restore process has been clarified as you cannot restore from an older release to a newer release. Also, you must ensure that you have enough free space to restore.
