NOTE: For a full list of key features in One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions, see Administration Guide.

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 One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS) version 7.1.1
  • Share connection policy with SPS

    The Functions shared with SPP option has been extended with the new Share connection policy with SPS option. Using the Share connection policy with SPS option, you can initiate sessions from SPS without using SPP directly, but using the credentials provided by and stored in SPP. Currently, the Share connection policy with SPS option is supported with SSH and RDP protocols.

    Navigate to:

    • RDP Control > Connections

    • SSH Control > Connections

  • Export zat/zatx...

    Using the new Export zat/zatx... option of Safeguard Desktop Player, you can save the audit trail currently opened to a selected location.

  • AA plugin

    AA plugin is also enabled beside SGAA plugin in SSH and RDP connection policies. For more information, see the following topics in the SPS Administration Guide:

    • Sharing SSH connection policies with SPP

    • Sharing SSH connection policies with SPS

    • Sharing RDP connection policies with SPP

    • Sharing RDP connection policies with SPS

  • Sharing worker resources between multiple indexer services

    You can now share your worker resources between multiple indexer services by configuring a service pool. For more information, see Configuring a service pool in the SPS Administration Guide.

  • Federated login with SAML2

    The SPS web interface now supports federated authentication and single sign-on with SAML2.

Other improvements
  • In SPP version 7.0, the Desktop client has been deprecated and only the web UI is available. The terminology has been updated in configuring SPP for Sessions-, and for Passwords-initiated workflows in the SPS Administration Guide.

  • The session search cleanup has been modified: the Delete search metadata from SPS after option has been removed from the connection policies and from the Global options. The session search cleanup option is available under Policies > Audit data cleanup policy.

Changes and improvements in SPS REST API Reference Guide version 7.1.1:
  • Retrieving all sessions from the session database with the advanced search method

    Using the advanced search method, you can retrieve all session metadata stored at a specified moment from the sessions database. The advanced search method builds on using session database snapshots.

  • Defaults query parameter

    You can now use the ?defaults query parameter to get information about all default configuration values under /api/configuration. For more information, see Defaults query parameter in the SPS REST API Reference Guide.

  • SPS support bundle generation

    Previously, generating a support bundle for SPS was possible only from the SPS web interface, at Basic Settings > Troubleshooting > Create support bundle. Using the /support-bundle endpoint, administrators can start support bundle generation jobs and download a snapshot of the current state of the specified SPS appliance. To troubleshoot multiple SPS appliances, you must generate the support bundle for each appliance.

  • SAML2 login using REST

    Configure the SAML2 (Security Assertion Markup Language 2.0) Service Provider settings to control federated user access to SPS.
