CA Named A Leader In Client Management Suites By Independent Market Analysis


CA (NYSE: CA) today announced it was named a “Leader” in the client management suites market by Forrester Research in the “Forrester Wave™: Client Management Suites, Q3 2007” report.

Of the eight companies invited to participate in the study-which evaluated client management solutions across 98 criteria grouped by Strategy, Current Offering, and Market Presence-CA had the highest score across multiple criteria such as architecture, administration and management, and key technology partners.

The Forrester report stated that CA’s Desktop Management Suite offers practical features in the areas of software, OSes, and systems management and “has broad desktop OS support, the most flexible software distribution capabilities, and includes power and license management functionality.” *

“In addition,” according to Forrester, “the product hooks directly into other IT management solutions from CA, enabling IT to have visibility into enterprise-wide system status. Best of all, this solution comes at a price point that enterprises can afford.” *

Forrester’s report also recognized the administration and management features of CA’s client management technologies and said they “include rich identity-based policy capabilities, which lower the costs associated with managing the client environment by decreasing the amount of time administrators spend keeping systems up and running. In addition, the product architecture is solid, scaling to any size organization without significant performance impact.” *

“Rock-solid client management is essential for ensuring that end-users can readily access the critical IT services they need every minute of every day—whether they’re at their desks or on the road,” said David Hurwitz, vice president of marketing at CA. “We believe Forrester’s assessment of CA’s client management solutions underscores both our position as a leader in this specific area and in the management of enterprise IT as a whole.”

CA’s Client Management solutions streamline the management of desktops across an organization’s IT environment to reduce costs, improve service levels and mitigate risk. They help ensure the optimum configuration of desktops with automated features that provide continuous and active discovery, change monitoring, software and patch distribution, remote support for end-users, data protection and targeted reporting.
