CA Technologies Positioned in the Leaders Quadrant of Two Gartner Inc. Magic Quadrants: Identity and Access Governance and User Administration/Provisioning
ISLANDIA, NY, January 24, 2013 - CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced that it has again been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders Quadrant of two Gartner reports: Magic Quadrant for Identity and Access Governance (IAG)*, and Magic Quadrant for User Administration and Provisioning (UAP).**
"The adoption of mobile, cloud and social applications demands that identity and access management (IAM) solutions transform to support new business models and identity needs while still addressing compliance concerns. Our broad portfolio of security solutions offers the functionality, ease of use and multiple choices of delivery - on premise or cloud - that address the evolving needs of our customers and prospects," said Mike Denning, general manager, Security business at CA Technologies. "We consider our position as a Leader in these quadrants confirmation that we are advancing IAM transformation."
Magic Quadrant for Identity and Access Governance
According to the report, Magic Quadrant for Identity and Access Governance*, "Identity and access governance (IAG) is defined as (1) the process of requesting, approving, certifying and auditing access to applications, data and other IT services; and (2) the process of delivering security and business intelligence (BI) on how identities are created, managed and used for access. Software tools and services that provide support for most or all of this process are known as IAG products.
"Today, IAG is the fastest-growing sector of identity and access management (IAM). Gartner estimates that 2011 IAG product sales alone ranged from $200 million to $300 million, with estimated growth rates in 2012 continuing to exceed 35 percent to 40 percent for most IAG vendors."
Magic Quadrant for User Administration/Provisioning
The report, Magic Quadrant for User Administration / Provisioning**, states, "User administration and provisioning (UAP) is a combination of administration and analytics technologies that provide an effective foundation for authentication and authorization in the enterprise. Characterized in this way, user administration is a fundamental part of an overall IAM technology strategy and program.
"UAP solutions address enterprise requirements to create, modify, disable and delete identity objects across heterogeneous IT system infrastructures, including OSs, databases, directories, business applications and security systems."
