CA Technologies Delivers Privileged User Governance to Better Protect Against Insider Threats

CA Technologies today announced a new release of CA Identity Suite that includes integration with CA Privileged Access Manager for governance of privileged accounts and new, flexible deployment options for agility, speed and ease-of-use in identity management and access governance helping to save time and save money.

“Identity and access management technology is designed to both protect and enable the business and its digital transformation initiatives,” said Mordecai Rosen, senior vice president and general manager, CA Security business. “The latest release of CA Identity Suite enhances security and time-to-value by providing privileged user governance to help mitigate the insider threat, and proven workflow templates and a new virtual appliance option to dramatically accelerate deployment. This allows our customers to focus their time and resources on building new and compelling applications and services, rather than deploying and integrating the underlying infrastructure.”

Privileged User Governance Helps Mitigate Insider Threat

CA Identity Suite’s integration with CA Privileged Access Manager adds a layer of security and compliance measures for privileged users. The integration addresses the need for consistent governance processes and a holistic view of all user access – privileged or not. With capabilities to manage access certifications, requests, provisioning and de-provisioning, CA Identity Suite helps ensure the practice of “least privilege” applies to privileged users so they only have the access needed to do to their jobs. It also helps prevent fraudulent or erroneous actions with the ability to run segregation of duties checks on privileged users and their roles, activity and access.

“Gartner believes that significant value is derived from integrating PAM technologies with other technologies in your IAM portfolio. One specific opportunity for integration involves PAM and identity governance and administration (IGA). A combined PAM and IGA solution provides organizations with increased control, visibility and governance over all user accounts in their environment, which helps reduce vulnerabilities such as an insider threat,” wrote Lori Robinson, Gartner analyst, in Securing Privileged Accounts Through PAM and IGA Integration.*

Simplified Deployment and Configuration Delivers Cost Savings, Scalability

New deployment tools include a virtual appliance and proven, pre-configured user scenarios that provide CA Identity Suite customers with an enhanced user experience and the ability to meet growing security and compliance needs quickly at a lower cost.

In a survey of more than 100 CA Identity Suite Users, 70 percent report that using CA Identity Suite has reduced costs more than 25 percent.** The new virtual appliance reduces costs even further with installation and configuration time going from days to minutes so the solution is up and running faster to support business and compliance needs. Organizations also can avoid high recurring software licensing costs with the appliance providing pre-installed instances of an operating system, application server and directory.

Complementing the virtual appliance in driving fast time-to-value, the latest release of CA Identity Suite includes Deployment Xpress – a marketplace of pre-configured use case scenarios drawn from hundreds of deployments. Instead of developing common identity management scenarios from scratch, the pre-packaged use cases meet most customer needs for common, consistent identity management services and are easily and quickly deployed across the entire enterprise. What can take weeks to configure with other solutions can be done in just a few days with CA Identity Suite, even if customers want to do customization on approval workflows or branding.

CA Technologies is a Platinum sponsor of Gartner IAM Summit held Nov. 29 – Dec. 1, 2016 in Las Vegas. Visit booth #109 or CA.com/security for more information on CA’s Security portfolio and CA Identity Suite.

"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics.
