Support of Safetica ONE 10 features in unified Safetica

Learn what happens to Safetica ONE 10 features in unified Safetica - which features will be sunset, which will be supported later, and which will need to be reconfigured after upgrade.

In this article, you will find:

 

Requirements for OS, SQL server, and Safetica Client

Unified Safetica requires

Details

Safetica Client: the minimum version installed on devices must be 10.4 or newer (10.5 is preferred).

Older versions of Safetica Client will stop working after upgrading to unified Safetica, but you will be able to update them remotely later.

Safetica 10.5 is preferred - enables the cross-update of Device control.

Microsoft SQL Server: the minimum supported version is Microsoft SQL Server 2016 or newer

 

Operating systems on devices:

  • Windows 10 (64-bit)
  • Windows 11 (64-bit)
  • macOS 10.15 and newer

Safetica Clients on older systems will continue working temporarily (they will remain as Safetica 10.4 or 10.5 Clients), but you won’t be able to update them and they will lack support for new features added to unified Safetica in the future.

 

Deprecated features not available in unified Safetica

The following features will no longer be available in unified Safetica:

Deprecated features

Details

WebSafetica

Replaced with our new web-based Safetica console.

Smart alerts that were part of WebSafetica will no longer be sent.

Safetica Mobile

The Safetica Mobile app is no longer available for mobile devices.

Disk Guard

This feature was not widely adopted and is not needed to protect sensitive company data.

You will no longer be able to set the rights of users and computers to access system and network paths or system drives via Safetica (e.g. choose drives/paths/folders that will be read-only for users).

Cloud sync client overview (i.e. setting up access to local folders that are used by certain cloud services) will be available in unified Safetica in the future.

Printing quota control

This feature was only available under a special license.

It enabled you to see the number of printed pages and types of print (color or black/white; simplex or duplex) and set up printing quotas for users.

In unified Safetica, print control is seamlessly integrated into DLP and controlled by policies and Data destinations. You will be able to control what files can be printed, by whom, and on which printers.

Network traffic audit

You will no longer see quantitative info about downloads and uploads on devices and statistics of network usage. Together with this, the Informative alerts about data dowloaded and data uploaded will no longer be available.

Detailed records on uploaded files are available in Safetica console in the Data section.

Policy rules:

  • Other network connection
  • Local path

 

Other network connection was an expert setting for all network traffic except for network file shares. It allowed you to cut off a device from the network.

Local paths was an expert setting for access to specified paths on local drives. It allowed you to completely cut off a destination from all access.

A new alternative may come later - will depend on priority and customer feedback.

It will still be possible to control who can use what applications via policies immediately after upgrading to unified Safetica.

DLP policy rules for exclusive access

Future support is subject to customer feedback.

Discovery tasks

Data discovery (i.e. classifying data at rest) will be available in unified Safetica in the future.

User-based classification will be added later.

Policies that contained this option will be “broken” after the upgrade to unified Safetica and will need to be reconfigured.

Safetica currently does not support custom report layouts and offers reports with expert-designed pre-defined layouts instead.

You can set up new reports in Safetica console > Scheduled reports.

Learn more about reports in the following articles:

Admin accounts and access management

Admin accounts will be disabled after the upgrade to unified Safetica. You will need to enable them and assign them correct access permissions. You can do that in Safetica console > Settings > Accounts and permissions.

Learn more about access permissions in the following articles:

Office 365 integration

If you are using Safetica CASB (the newer Microsoft 365 integration), your configuration will be migrated automatically.


If you are using the older Office 365 integration, you must disable it manually before upgrading to unified Safetica. Go to Safetica Maintenance Console > Maintenance > Integration settings > Office 365 Integration and disable all options.

Please note that the older Office 365 integration will no longer be supported by Microsoft after October 2023, so switching to either Safetica CASB or unified Safetica will be necessary.

Afterward, configure cloud protection in Safetica console:

Data analytics integration

If you have your Safetica database integrated with a data analytics tool, you must:

  1. perform the steps described here
  2. download the new report templates available here
  3. connect the new report templates as described here

If you have created your own visualizations based on Safetica records in Power BI or other data analysis tools, you will need to rename the views - see this article for details.

Please note that the Suspicious column was removed.

Policies that contained multiple data classifications

Policies that contained multiple data classifications will be “broken” after the upgrade to unified Safetica and will need to be reconfigured.

Upload to webmail / Upload to file share

Upload to webmail and Upload to file share were deprecated and replaced by Web upload. Depending on your current settings, you may need to slightly modify your policies. In such a case, you will see the policy as “broken” in the Safetica console.

You can copy and paste up to 10,000 keywords into one classification rule to serve as a custom dictionary. The keywords must be separated by line breaks. Learn more here:
