CA announced the latest release of its Identity and Access Management (IAM) solution that helps organizations minimize risk while reducing the cost of IT operations.
CA's IAM solution unifies and simplifies the management of enterprise-wide security through automated and centralized policy management. It integrates products to provide complete, modular and scalable IAM capabilities. Enhancements include expanded identity federation, strong authentication management, expanded user provisioning, and improved virtualization support.
"We simultaneously have to provide more users inside and outside the University with access to a broader range of applications than ever -- and we have to do it in a way that protects the integrity of sensitive information while ensuring we are in compliance with a wide range of federal regulations," said Karl Jackson, senior engineer, Office of Information Technology Engineering at Brigham Young University. "CA's comprehensive IAM solution enables us to meet this challenge in a centralized, cohesive and cost-effective way."
This release provides new capabilities for the products that comprise CA's IAM solution, including:
- Tighter integration with CA's access management solutions to extend single sign-on across the enterprise, including CA Embedded Entitlements Manager-instrumented applications.
- The addition of support for the XACML, SAML and SPML standards, which eases interoperability with third-party authentication, user administration and policy management systems.
- The ability to use C#, in addition to Java and C++ libraries, to externalize security policies for internally developed applications.
"The most effective and efficient way to manage user access rights across the enterprise is to drive identity, access and entitlement management from a single, centralized enterprise IAM system," said Bilhar Mann, senior vice president of Identity and Access Management at CA. "By providing such a centralized and complete solution, CA is meeting the evolving identity and access management needs of today's extended enterprise."
CA is working closely with key systems integrators to assist organizations in implementing identity and access management systems built around CA's IAM solution.
"Many companies are struggling to sustain compliance, improve governance, and reduce security management costs, while at the same time improving their end-user experience," said Deborah Golden, principal at Deloitte & Touche LLP ("Deloitte & Touche"). "CA's comprehensive IAM solution, combined with Deloitte & Touche's IAM leading practices, methodologies and frameworks, may help organizations achieve these critical and often conflicting objectives."
