CA Identity And Access Management Suite Designated A Market Leader In User Account Provisioning By Independent Research Firm


ISLANDIA, N.Y., February 9, 2006 - CA (NYSE: CA) today announced that Forrester Research has named CA a market leader in its recent report, The Forrester Wave: User Account Provisioning , Q1 2006, saying that CA “has a rich and unique portfolio of integrated identity management solutions and a strong commitment to the market that aligns well with its overall corporate strategy.”

According to the report, “CA has one of the broadest and most integrated set of identity management solutions on the market today. Few vendors have enterprise single sign-on, host access control, and Web services security, and CA stands alone with all three. CA is deeply committed to identity management, both as the lead area in security and as a core element of its overall Enterprise IT Management (EITM) strategy.”

The Forrester report concluded that “CA delivers strong auditing and administration atop a robust architecture. CA is best suited for companies seeking a robust, fully functional product.”

“We are very pleased that Forrester has recognized CA as a market leader in provisioning, an important component of effective enterprise identity and access management,” said Bill Bartow, senior vice president of Identity and Access Management at CA.

Bartow further commented, “By delivering the industry’s most robust and comprehensive IAM suite, CA is uniquely enabling customers to simultaneously manage risk, maintain regulatory compliance, and reduce administration costs.”

Subsequent to the completion of the Forrester product analysis, CA has even further bolstered its provisioning capabilities with the delivery of CA Identity Manager which leverages the technology from CA’s acquisition of Netegrity. CA Identity Manager unifies identity management across the entire enterprise - from the web to the mainframe - to streamline and simplify administration of internal and external users and their entitlements. This helps ensure that IT systems are under control and that business processes are conducted in accordance with enterprise policies.

CA provides a comprehensive IAM suite which includes Web, enterprise, and federated single sign-on, identity administration, user provisioning, user directory, and Web services security. This suite provides customers with the industry’s most complete and integrated identity and access management capabilities, enabling them to securely manage the broadest range of IT resources — including mainframe, distributed, Internet, and mobile infrastructures. Forrester evaluated vendors against approximately 125 specific criteria including current product offering, strategy, and market presence.
