Positive was the highest rating assigned to any of the 12 companies evaluated in the report. CA Technologies has received a Positive rating in this report for three consecutive years. The ratings were based on several criteria including a vendor’s overall viability, customer experience and product strategy.
Gartner notes in the report that “The Web access management market has been invigorated by mobility and cloud access requirements. Differentiation is now found in the ability to grow market share, and the ease and cost-effectiveness of extending WAM with mobile device and federation support.”
“Web access management, single sign-on and federation are critical capabilities for safeguarding and easing operations in increasingly mobilized, cloud-connected and social business environments,” said Mike Denning, general manager, Security, CA Technologies. “We believe Gartner’s Positive rating confirms our position in the market and our commitment to providing secure SSO and access management solutions with the broad functionality to meet customers’ growing business demands.”
The CA SiteMinder portfolio includes capabilities for single sign-on, authorization, auditing and administration, as well as standards-based federation, Web services security, mobile platforms, and social networking identities. By centralizing the management of these key services, security silos that typically create increased security risks and high administration costs can be eliminated.
