CA Technologies Named an Overall Leader in Privilege Management


CA Privileged Access Manager Lands in a Leader Position Based on Evaluation by Analyst Firm KuppingerCole

NEW YORK, Jan. 20, 2016 – CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced it has been named an “Overall Leader” in Privilege Management in the recent Leadership Compass report issued by KuppingerCole, a leading analyst firm for identity-focused information security. CA Privileged Access Manager was evaluated for the report, which assessed solutions focused on controlling access and activity of privileged users, such as those used by an IT administrator.

 

“The scope of privilege management though quite broad can be summed up as ‘automating the management of who can access your most critical data and systems when, from where, at what time and for how long,’” Martin Kuppinger and Amar Singh, principal and senior analysts at KuppingerCole, wrote in the report. “CA Privileged Access Manager is a comprehensive, mature and overall complete solution that would function well on its own but also integrates fully with other products in the CA Technologies stack such as CA Identity Governance and CA Identity Manager.”

In the “Leadership Compass: Privilege Management”* report, KuppingerCole calculated leaders in four categories: innovation, market presence, product and “overall,” with overall leaders based on a combined rating of the other three categories.  CA was a leader in every category, including the overall evaluation, and it received ratings of “strong positive” across product characteristics of security, integration, interoperability and usability, and for company positions of financial strength and ecosystem of regional presence and partners.

“Privileged accounts allow unfettered access to high-value systems and information, and their compromise has resulted in some of the most damaging beaches reported. That risk, plus growing compliance and audit demands, have increased the need to control and manage the credentials and activities associated with privileged accounts,” said Mordecai Rosen, vice president, product management, CA Technologies. "CA Privileged Access Manager offers a comprehensive approach for controlling privileged access across hybrid IT environments and addressing compliance needs.”
