CA Simplifies IT Administration with New Single Sign-On Application Wizard


Unique Combination of Wizard and Tcl Scripting Enables Customers to
Address Full Range of Enterprise IAM Requirements

ISLANDIA, N.Y.– CA, Inc. (NYSE: CA) today announced the availability of a new Application Wizard for CA Single Sign-On (SSO), a key component of its popular Identity & Access Management (IAM) solution. The Application Wizard makes it even easier for IT administrators to automate single sign-on so that end users can quickly take advantage of fast, convenient access to their applications.

Single sign-on saves time, improves security and reduces help-desk calls by providing access to multiple applications through a single authentication. The Application Wizard complements the existing Tcl scripting language in CA Single Sign-On, which empowers IT administrators to SSO-enable applications with even the most complex, multi-stage logins. This combination of wizard- and script-based SSO-enablement makes CA’s IAM solution uniquely suitable for implementing single sign-on in today’s highly diverse enterprise environments.

The Missouri Department of Conservation, a state agency responsible for protecting Missouri’s fish, forest and wildlife resources, implemented single sign-on to improve application access for its local and remote staff. By using CA Single Sign-On, the agency has been able to quickly automate single sign-on for applications with distinct login processes, including time reporting, human resources and accounting across multiple platforms and environments.

“CA Single Sign-On gives us the best of both worlds: an easy-to-use Application Wizard for most applications and fully customizable scripting for our more complex applications,” said Ron Kimball, IT specialist at Missouri Department of Conservation. “This combination allows us to make SSO truly universal, while bringing a new level of efficiency to our IT operations.”

This latest enhancement further extends the capabilities of CA’s IAM solution, which automates the management of user identities throughout their life cycle to ensure that only properly authorized users can access critical IT resources.

“Customers want to be able to realize the benefits of their IT investments quickly—but they don’t want to gain fast time-to-benefit at the expense of long-term value and robust functionality,” said Sam Curry, vice president of security management at CA. “With this latest enhancement to our IAM solution, CA is once again demonstrating our ability to fulfill both our customers’ near- and long-term business objectives.”
