System requirements

One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Passwords has two graphical user interfaces that allow you to manage access requests, approvals and reviews for your managed accounts and systems:

  • The Windows desktop client consists of an end-user view and administrator view.
  • The web client is functionally similar to the desktop client end-user view.

Ensure that your system meets the minimum hardware and software requirements for these clients.

NOTE: If a Safeguard Sessions Appliance is joined to Safeguard for Privileged Passwords, session recording is handled via Safeguard for Privileged Session.

Desktop client system requirements

The desktop client is a native Windows application suitable for use on end-user machines. You install the desktop client by means of an MSI package which you can download from the appliance web client portal. You do not need administrator privileges to install One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Passwords.

NOTE: When you install the Windows desktop client, these additional components are installed which are used by the embedded sessions module:

  • Safeguard for Privileged Passwords Desktop Player: Used to play back a recorded session.
  • Safeguard for Privileged Passwords PuTTY: Used to launch an SSH client if PuTTY is not available on the machine.
