CA Positioned in 2009 Leaders Quadrant for Web Access Management


ISLANDIA, N.Y., CA, Inc. (NASDAQ: CA) today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc., in the leaders quadrant for its Magic Quadrant for Web Access Management, 2009.* Gartner positions vendors in the “Leaders” quadrant based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute.

According to the report, “During the first decade of the 21st century, WAM has given enterprises quick access to the Web application universe, both for internal Web applications and to link with the Internet and with their customers, partners and other stakeholders. The Web application universe has evolved, and it isn’t just about Web applications anymore. It now consists of combinations of ‘traditional’ Web applications, application components, Web services components, and ‘mashups’ of applets and platform services. As a result, this increasingly heterogeneous environment requires some form of authentication and authorization services.”

The development and innovation CA is putting into CA SiteMinder and its portfolio of Web Access Management technology is extending product capabilities to support new IT platforms and environments, such as services and applications moving to the Cloud, and hybrid application environments.

“CA is committed to providing new value to our customers as their access and entitlement management needs evolve,“ said Dave Hansen, corporate senior vice president and general manager, CA Security Management. ”Whether it’s managing access for secure collaboration in Microsoft® SharePoint®, or helping to secure Cloud platforms, CA will continue to lead in providing authentication, authorization and administration for those environments"
