Though a lot of the Identity Manager tools functionality is available via an API Server connection, the full functionality of the Identity Manager tools relies on a database connection. We will discuss how to protect the database connection using the One Identity PAM tools called Safeguard for Privileged Password and Safeguard for Privileged Sessions. Please keep in mind that the API Server connection and other web-based tools like Operation Support Portal should always be the first choice. This Tech Brief discusses options for secure access to Identity Manager administration tools using Safeguard.
The benefits of bringing Identity Manager and Safeguard together include:
Unify Privileged Access Governance
Govern and secure organization data and users
Enable access request, provisioning and attestation for both privileged and user accounts from a single platform
