About this release

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.

The privileged management software provided with One Identity Safeguard consists of 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 allows you to issue privileged access for a specific period or session to administrators, remote vendors and high-risk users with full recording and replay. With this ability, you can easily meet your auditing and compliance demands. In addition, Safeguard for Privileged Sessions serves as a proxy to ensure your critical assets are protected from any malicious software that might be lurking on an administrator's machine. It provides a single point of control from which you can authorize connections, limit access to specific resources, view active connections, record all activity, and terminate connections. Safeguard for Privileged Sessions is a critical component of the One Identity privileged access management products and is deployed on the same hardened secure appliance as Safeguard for Privileged Passwords.

One Identity Safeguard Version 2.3 includes new synchronized password functionality in addition to numerous bug fixes. See New features and enhancements.

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