cloud infrastructure with CA Privileged Access Management
MORGES, Switzerland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA) today announced that SGN, one of the United
Kingdom's largest gas distribution network companies, has chosen CA
Privileged Access Management to secure its cloud infrastructure.
SGN manages the network that distributes natural and green gas to 5.9
million homes and businesses across Scotland, the South of England and
part of Northern Ireland.
"Security is a vital aspect of our innovation strategy and CA
Technologies is the ideal partner to deliver complete protection. Their
best-in-class security solution helps us to defend our cloud environment
against the risks associated with privileged users," says Mo Ahddoud,
Chief Information Security Officer, SGN.
"CA Technologies is proud to be a trusted partner in SGN's innovative
cloud-first transformation programme," says Marco Comastri, General
Manager EMEA, CA Technologies. "It only takes a single, improperly
authorised privileged account to cause widespread damage to an
organization's infrastructure, intellectual property and brand equity.
CA Technologies solutions are used by hundreds of forward-thinking
organizations like SGN."
SGN has standardised on CA Privileged Access Manager to protect the
applications and data residing in the company's cloud environment,
running on Amazon Web Services (AWS). By providing the right access to
the right resources at the right time - and when necessary, monitoring
access to prevent privilege abuse - the CA solution is helping to secure
the company's digital transformation.
The security solution features numerous best practice capabilities that
restrict, log and monitor the activities performed by privileged
accounts. Role-based privileged access control and federated access
control protect credentials, positively authenticating users and
proactively controlling their activity to prevent policy violations,
exposures and downtime.
