CA’s Identity And Access Management Solution Wins ‘Best Enterprise Security Solution’ Excellence Award From SC Magazine


Independent Panel of Corporate IT Professionals Gives Top Honors To CA’s Industry-Leading Security Solutions

ISLANDIA, N.Y., February 8, 2007 – CA (CA) today announced that its Identity and Access Management (IAM) solution, featuring CA Identity Manager and CA SiteMinder, won the “Best Enterprise Security Solution” 2007 Excellence Award from SC Magazine. This award was presented at the 10th annual SC Magazine Awards gala, held in San Francisco in conjunction with the RSA Conference, the world’s leading information–security event.

The prestigious SC Magazine Awards recognize leading information security providers and practitioners for their contributions to the information security community. Solutions were carefully judged by a panel of 17 chief information security officers at major corporations. Three other software companies were finalists for the award.

“As their IT environments become increasingly complex, businesses must greatly simplify and streamline essential security administration tasks in order to adequately protect themselves from cyber-risks,” said Illena Armstrong, editor-in-chief of SC Magazine. “By streamlining a significant portion of these tasks, CA’s IAM Suite can substantially mitigate the risks associated with poorly managed user access rights.”

Judges were impressed by the broad scope, complete functionality, and integration of CA’s IAM solution, which unifies and simplifies the management of enterprise-wide security through automated and centralized policy management. It integrates best-in-class products to provide complete, modular and scalable IAM capabilities.

“This award underscores CA’s unquestioned leadership of the identity and access management market,” said Sam Curry, vice president of security management at CA. “We will continue to evolve our IAM solutions—and our overall security management portfolio—to help our customers respond more quickly, safely and cost-effectively to the changing business needs of end users within and beyond the enterprise.”
