CA Technologies Helps Simplify Email Monitoring and Compliance with IBM Information Lifecycle Governance Solution Integration

Technical Integration and Reseller Agreement with IBM Extend Market for CA Email Supervision Beyond Security

NEW YORK, N.Y., December 17, 2013 — CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced it has integrated CA Email Supervision with IBM® Content Collector. The combined offering, available from IBM through a joint marketing and reseller agreement for CA Email Supervision, helps reduce the risk of sensitive information leaving an organization through email and helps address regulatory needs for message retention.

High-volume email communication puts organizations at significant risk of accidentally or intentionally distributing sensitive information inside or outside the company. Furthermore, some organizations are mandated to monitor, report on and archive messages so that they are available to regulators on demand.

Deployed together, CA Email Supervision and IBM Content Collector help organizations address those needs with policy-based email controls that can help prevent accidental, negligent, or malicious communication threats. In addition, they offer electronic communications monitoring and message archiving to help ensure customers meet compliance obligations.

CA Email Supervision is based on the leading* CA Data Protection. The solution helps ensure that intellectual property, financial information, personal data, and other sensitive information sent over email can be secured with defined, flexible detection and classification capabilities even in large, decentralized organizations.

CA Email Supervision helps customers deploy the supervision functions that are required to meet their compliance obligations with the IBM Content Collector value-based archive. Customers using the interoperable solutions can leverage archiving, eDiscovery, compliance, retention and surveillance capabilities to support Defensible Disposal programs and other initiatives focused on improving information economics.

“For large organizations generating millions of email messages per day, electronic communication review is resource-intensive. Those relying on random survey methods get bogged down reviewing irrelevant messages while potential violations go unnoticed,” said Michelle Waugh, vice president, Security, CA Technologies. “CA Email Supervision automates email monitoring and reporting, and through policy-based controls, helps organizations avoid the damage that maliciously or accidentally misguided emails can cause – without burdening system or people resources.”

“Companies today must adhere to a myriad of government regulations and standards established by industry or self-regulatory organizations such as FINRA or HIPAA,” said Aliye Ergulen, IBM Information Lifecycle Governance Solution Marketing, IBM.  “The interoperable solutions available today from CA Technologies and IBM help companies manage information as an asset, including big data, and globally execute their compliance responsibility in a way that is consistent, invisible, and operationally efficient.”

Together, CA Technologies and IBM have a successful history of cost-effectively addressing the unique business and technology needs of their joint customers. This agreement brings together CA Technologies innovative software solutions with IBM Information Lifecycle Governance value-based archiving capabilities and Global Services expertise.
