CA Releases Wily Manager For CA Siteminder


Provides Real-Time Visibility on CA SiteMinder-Related Applications and Transactions

ISLANDIA, N.Y., February 27, 2007 – CA (NYSE: CA) today announced the availability of Wily Manager for SiteMinder Web Access Manager, an extension of Wily Introscope, the industry-leading enterprise application management tool. The new product extends Wily Introscope visibility into CA SiteMinder, an identity and access management product that protects critical IT systems and services with user authentication and access control.

“The extension of Introscope to monitor transactions throughout the login and authentication process is another positive step forward for CA Wily as it continues to build bridges of integration to other CA products,” said Jasmine Noel, Principal Analyst at Ptak, Noel and Associates. “This will benefit CA customers that own both products by correlating SiteMinder performance metrics to the view of end-to-end application performance that Introscope already provides.”

The new Wily Manager for SiteMinder provides real-time visibility into the performance of the SiteMinder Web server agents, application server agents, and CA TransactionMinder agents. This provides Wily Introscope customers with insight into the time transactions spend to check resources, identify users, and authenticate users to access protected resources. Wily Manager for SiteMinder is the only performance management solution that monitors SiteMinder 24x7 to proactively detect problems and enable quick analysis when performance issues arise.

“Wily Manager for SiteMinder provides support teams with an early warning system, enabling them to quickly detect, triage, and diagnose issues affecting SiteMinder operation before end users are impacted,” said Mike Malloy, vice president and chief marketing officer for CA’s Wily Technology Division. “While Wily remains platform independent, this is another significant milestone in our product integration roadmap at CA. Introscope support for SiteMinder will benefit CA customers by allowing them to determine, in real-time, whether their identity and authentication process is the cause of an application performance issue.” Wily Manager for SiteMinder enables application support and security teams to collaborate and better understand how authentication performance affects Web applications and help ensure that applications are successfully achieving business and performance goals.

By aggregating data from all SiteMinder policy servers and agents, Wily Manager for SiteMinder allows IT teams to monitor comprehensive, real-time performance metrics from SiteMinder, including average response time for login; successes, failures, and errors per measurement period; and socket availability for SiteMinder processes. Wily Manager for SiteMinder automatically identifies problematic transactions and displays those transactions with correlated metrics from the SiteMinder environment to speed problem resolution.

Wily Manager for SiteMinder also monitors SiteMinder Policy Server metrics such as version, port, cache availability and cache size for the Policy Server and individual SiteMinder agents. This allows individual SiteMinder transaction times to be recorded, relayed and incorporated into overall enterprise performance metrics displayed by CA Wily Introscope.
