U.S. Election-Year Reform Agenda Fuels Interest in CA Information Governance


Reform of Federal Agencies May Require eDiscovery and Records Retention; CA is First to Market with DoD 5015.2 v3 and Microsoft® SharePoint® Certified Solution

News Facts

* CA, Inc. (NASDAQ: CA) is seeing an increasing demand from government agencies for its Information Governance Suite related to anticipated inquiries and reform measures expected after the US presidential elections in November 2008. The platforms of both major presidential candidates advocate significant reform in the legislative and executive branches of government, and agencies may need to prepare for requirements to manage, discover and retain electronic and physical records, emails and other information assets.
* The CA Information Governance Suite, comprised of CA Records Manager and CA Message Manager, is designed to deliver comprehensive, certified records management, archiving and eDiscovery capabilities for risk reduction, litigation preparedness and proactive information governance.
* Using CA solutions, organizations in the public and private sectors can better manage, control and discover information over the information’s life cycle while facilitating access, mitigating risk and preserving business value. This proactive management and control helps these organizations to respond more effectively to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.

CA Information Governance—First to Certify on Both Microsoft SharePoint and U.S. DoD 5015.2 v3

* CA Records Manager, the first records management product to receive U.S. DoD 5015.2 v3 certification, is the first to receive paired certifications under that standard. CA Records Manager is now certified with Microsoft SharePoint as well as other popular content management systems. The U.S. DoD 5015.2 v3 standard is used worldwide as the de facto standard for comprehensive records management by both private and public organizations.
* Additionally, the CA Information Governance suite provides:
o Rules-based auto-declaration of Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft® Outlook® content.
o Fully automated disposition processing.
o FIPS 140-2 compliance.
o Federated search of both records and non-records (including file shares, Microsoft SharePoint and other managed repositories and unmanaged resources).
