One Identity’s Safeguard solution works to store, manage, record and analyze privileged access, acting as a layer of security to keep privileges accounts – one of the most common access points for hackers – safe and secure. It features powerful auto discovery and provisioning capabilities, making it simpler for admins to oversee and address any suspicious or unauthorized behavior. All of One Identity’s PAM products are available as modules or as an integrated package, which allows customers to build new capabilities onto their existing measures. The solution provides a necessary layer of security to one of the most frequently targeted areas of any organization – their Privileged Accounts.


Policy-Based Release Control

Request access and provide approval for privileged passwords and sessions using a secure web browser with support for mobile devices. Based on the organizations policy, requests can be approved automatically or require duel/multiple approvals.

User Behavioral Biometrics

Even while performing identical actions like typing of moving the mouse, users have an idiosyncratic pattern of behavior. The algorithms built into Safeguard for Privileged Analytics examines these behavioral patterns to help identify breaches, while also serving as continual biometric authentication.

Full-Session Audit, Recording and Replay

All session activity (windows viewed, mouse movement and keystrokes included) are captured, indexed and stored in tamper proof audit trails which can be searched like a database and viewed like a video. This allows security teams to search for specific events across sessions and view the recording from the precise location the search criteria occurred. For compliance and forensics purposes these audit trails are encrypted, time-stamped and cryptographically sighed.

Personal Password Vault

Employees can generate and store random secure passwords for non-federated business accounts in a free personal password vault. This facilitates secure sharing and recovery of password, providing additional security and visibility into business accounts.
