Latest Release of CA Identity Suite Strengthens Security and Accelerates Time-to-Value with New Deployment Options
"Identity and access management technology is designed to both protect
and enable the business and its digital transformation initiatives,"
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
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.
