CyberArk - Safes
CyberArk gives you the flexibility to organize accounts according to individual organizational requirements, and store them in different Safes.
By organizing accounts in different Safes, you can limit access to them. For example, an organization might decide to organize its accounts according to departments, and would then create a Safe for each department where all the accounts for that department would be stored. Using this scenario, only the administrator of the Windows accounts would have access to the Windows accounts Safe, while only the administrator of the Unix accounts would have access to the Unix accounts Safe.
In addition, only authorized users have access to the accounts. As authorizations for each Safe member are given separately, some users will only have access to view an account, while others will have access to modify its properties. For more information, see Safe Members.
Throughout the entire account management procedure, the account benefits from all the security and tracking features of the CyberArk Vault.
Authorized users can add Safes in CyberArk and modify their properties, as well as manage Safe members and their authorizations.
Add Safes in the PVWA
Authorized users can add Safes through the PVWA. The Safes page displays a list of all the Safes they own, and where they can create new Safes.
Safes that are created in the PVWA are based on properties specified in a Safe template. For more information about creating Safe templates, refer to Safes.

Update Safe properties in the PVWA
Safes that are created in the PVWA are based on properties specified in a Safe Template. Users who have the Manage Safe permission in the Safe can modify some of the Safe properties that can be updated in the PVWA. Other properties can be changed in the PrivateArk Administrative Client.
