CA Named a Leader in Identity and Access Management and Provisioning by Independent Research Firm


ISLANDIA, N.Y.– CA (NASDAQ: CA) today announced it has been named a “Leader” in The Forrester Wave™: Identity and Access Management, Q4 2009(November 2009) research report* for both its overall Identity and Access Management (IAM) software stack, and its user provisioning technology, which Forrester also evaluated separately. According to the report, CA earned a “Leader” rating based on its “rich IAM portfolio, its understanding of a rapidly changing market, and its strong and meticulously executed strategy.”

Forrester analysts evaluated nine vendors’ IAM products. CA earned the highest possible rating for criteria including IAM vision, IAM support ecosystem, and Web access management. It also earned the top score among vendors in role management.

Over the past year, CA has enhanced its IAM software stack through in-house development and acquisitions in the areas of role and compliance management (RCM); fine-grained segregation of duties; and data loss prevention, to deliver content-aware IAM. “These acquisitions will further CA’s strong position in securely delegating administration not only for enterprise business users but also for business partners,” wrote Andras Cser, senior analyst, Forrester Research. “Moreover, the RCM product’s role mining, modeling, time machine analysis, role comparisons, and heuristic account linking logic stand out as tops among the role management functionality. CA also is pioneering the path to quick implementation times, where its fixed-price projects bring quick results to enterprises.”

“Our IAM team at CA has listened to customers and prospects and worked very hard to deliver identity and access management technologies to help address their needs, including a streamlined implementation process which can help show value in just 30 to 60 days in some cases,” said Dave Hansen, corporate senior vice president and general manager, CA Security Management. “Our IAM software has helped our customers in the economic downturn, and it will continue to help manage security and compliance needs and streamline processes to enable competitive advantage.”
