CRN - Sarah Kuranda - November 16, 2016
CA Technologies is boosting its security portfolio, rolling out enhancements to its privileged access management and identity and access management portfolios Wednesday at CA World in Las Vegas.
The new offerings include CA Threat Analytics for PAM, which adds behavioral analytics to its privileged access management offering, as well as new controls to step up authentication, recording or alerting if an anomaly or threat is detected.
While many other vendors are enhancing their privileged access management offerings as the technology gains steam with customers, Nick Nikols, senior vice president of product management, security, said the CA offering will set itself apart by targeting the data collection to the offering itself, rather than taking a more open-ended data collection approach. That will make it "much more meaningful out of the box," he said, as well as add value to existing deployments.
