ISLANDIA, N.Y., Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- CA Technologies (Nasdaq: CA) today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc., in the Leaders Quadrant for its 2010 Magic Quadrant for User Provisioning.* Gartner positions vendors in the "Leaders" quadrant based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute. CA Identity Manager and CA Role & Compliance Manager were part of the Gartner user provisioning evaluation.
According to the 2010 Magic Quadrant for User Provisioning, "User provisioning manages identities across systems, applications and resources. Compliance remains the main driver of uptake, and identity and access intelligence and role life cycle management are increasingly top-of-mind issues."*
CA Technologies provisioning capabilities integrate with its identity and access management (IAM), log management and data loss prevention solutions. This helps customers automate provisioning processes as part of a broader IAM system to manage compliance requirements, reduce risk and improve operational efficiencies.
"User provisioning is a critical element of an organization's overall identity and access management system, but to be most effective, it must be integrated with related capabilities," said Dave Hansen, general manager, Security and Management Products and Solutions, CA Technologies. "This integration is transforming IAM as we know it, and this is why we continue to integrate our leading CA Identity Manager product with our other security solutions to provide an information security system that delivers 'content-aware IAM' controlling not just access, but also how information can be used based on an identity or role."
