Oct 25, 2010, 09:00 ET from CA Technologies

ISLANDIA, N.Y., Oct. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- CA Technologies (Nasdaq: CA) today announced it has been named a "Leader" in The Forrester Wave™ Data Leak Prevention Suites, Q4 2010.*

Forrester analysts evaluated eight data loss prevention (DLP) suites. CA DLP earned the top score among vendors in the "Features" category of the "Current Offering" evaluation.

"For its part, CA Technologies dramatic product enhancements have enabled it to considerably grow its sales to emerge as a Leader," said Andrew Jaquith, senior analyst, Forrester Research, Inc. "Perhaps as a result of all the improvements in the product, CA's DLP suite sales are growing faster than any other vendor's, and a best-in-class 60 percent of its customers have already upgraded." *

CA DLP is identity-centric, and it also integrates with the company's identity and access management (IAM) and log management solutions to help customers improve information security, and better manage compliance requirements, reduce risk and improve operational efficiencies.

"Data Loss Prevention is a critical element of an organization's overall information protection and control plan," said Dave Hansen, general manager, Security and Management Products and Solutions, CA Technologies. "As DLP becomes more about controlling information instead of just preventing loss, it needs to integrate deeply with IAM systems and other data protection technologies. We are now experiencing this paradigm shift in how we secure our data.  With our latest releases, we have an information security system that delivers 'content-aware IAM' and controls not just access, but also how information can be used based on an identity or role."
