Foundation Services

Success starts with a good foundation. CA Services provides you with a foundation implementation of CA Privileged Account Manager that quickly delivers centralized management functionality and an initial building block to help control access to critical servers, applications and devices across physical and virtual systems in your enterprise.

The foundational service:

  • Provides for an easy entry point to meet your access control requirements and business goals
  • Delivers a clear maturity path and plan for your access control solution that fits your unique requirements
  • Helps achieve faster time-to-value and quick ROI from your software investment as your requirements change and evolve with the business

In addition to the CA Privileged Account Manager Foundation Services you will have the option to continue on your maturity path using the CA Services acceleration model to help move your access control solution forward-tailored to your enterprise’s requirements.

Acceleration Services

After you have implemented the foundation service you can consider acceleration services which you will need to further build out and enhance the functionality and maturity of your privileged identity management infrastructure. Start with the foundation, then add acceleration services to increase solution capability including:

End Point Management (ENDPT) Acceleration Services provides an out of the box (OOTB) deployment with a limited number of endpoints to guide you in developing your own monitoring and protection policies.

Shared Account Management (SAM) Acceleration Services provide an OOTB deployment to enable you to manage access for privileged accounts.

UNIX Authentication Management (UNAB) Acceleration Services installs and configures OOTB login and configuration policies and endpoints to allow UNIX and Linux users to authenticate using their Active Directory (AD) credentials.

Capacity Acceleration Services (ENDPT, SAM or UNAB) extend the applicable implementation infrastructure to support additional endpoints.

CA User Activity Reporting Acceleration Services install and configure the log aggregation tool to collect log events from the different components of the overall solution. These events will be used by the service to produce compliance reports.

Enterprise Management (ENTM) Capacity Acceleration Services expand upon the ENTM foundation services to support additional endpoint/resource protection for shared user management and/or UNAB endpoints.

ENTM Failover Deployment Options provide redundancy for the enterprise management implementation.

ENTM Disaster Recovery Deployment Options provide disaster recovery for the enterprise management implementation.

The foundation and acceleration deployment model can reduce complexity, cost, and time it takes to effectively adopt a privileged account management solution. This proven model allows you to grow where and when you need, while building a cost effective security infrastructure that delivers business value through its lifecycle with a clear maturity path.
