IT Central Station is now PeerSpot: Here's why

One Identity Safeguard Primary Use Case

FI
Chief Information Security Officer at a financial services firm with 51-200 employees

Our company is regulated by the central bank in our country. There are about 4,000 employees in our organization. 

Our main need was to reduce the operational cost of our department by increasing the window of operations to 24-hour rather than have office unemployment. 

We are now digitizing the access control function through One Identity. Whoever forgets their password can reset it on their own rather than reaching out to the security desk. Whenever we have a new employee, we found that it was taking at least two days to get them a username or access to the system. Now, once they are logged into the organization and are registered on our ERP system, their complete access will be ready within five seconds. They will receive an SMS with their username and password so they can start working. This has increased efficiency and effectiveness of the access control function. It has reduced operational costs as well as providing services 24/7 with a platform that can be used anytime and anywhere for investigation in case we have a requirement. 

We use the physical appliances, as they are more reliable. Around the world, dedicated appliances are more reliable than having a virtual version/copy. We went with the physical appliances because they are dedicated and closed like a black box. However, we haven't reported any misses with the virtual version.

With Safeguard, there are two virtual appliances. There is one that helps you manage passwords and then there is another one that helps you record the sessions. You can configure it to record whatever you do when you make the remote calls.  

We use this solution for a bank. My current project is to onboard all the bank's security assets onto Safeguard. It will be used for admins to have secure access to the server.

We use this solution to control the access of privileged users, such as application administrators, to the internal network. This solution allows us to record and log user sessions.

We use virtual appliances on the VMware platform. The virtualization of such services allows us to flexibly scale our hardware configuration and gives significantly more opportunities for building a stable structure.

We use Safeguard to manage users when the client wants to record all discussions on an LDAP. The solution is deployed on a VMware ESXI because all our clients don't want a physical appliance. We average about 300 to 500 connections to Safeguard.
