CA Technologies, through SolvIT Networks, strategic partner of CA SEE, announced it has been named an “Overall Leader” in Privilege Management in this year’s Leadership Compass report issued by KuppingerCole, a leading analyst firm for identity-focused information security.
“Privilege management is among the most relevant areas of Identity and Access Management, but also tightly connected to cybersecurity, given that privileged users are a primary target of attackers. Even the most sophisticated attacker would find it almost impossible to succeed without having access to privileged credentials,” Martin Kuppinger, principal and senior analysts at KuppingerCole, wrote in the report. “CA Privileged Access Management is scalable and supports a hybrid IT environment. It’s a comprehensive, mature and overall complete solution that functions well on its own but also integrates fully with other products in the CA Technologies security stack.”
In the “Leadership Compass: Privilege Management”* report, the Overall Leader rating provides a combined view of a company’s ratings in: innovation, market presence and product. CA was a leader in every category, and it received ratings of “strong positive” across product characteristics of security, functionality, integration, interoperability, usability, ecosystem and market position. It also rated “strong positive” for the financial strength of the company.
“Whether they were exploited maliciously by an outsider or misused by an insider, some of the most damaging breaches and attacks have succeeded due to compromised privileged accounts,” said Mordecai Rosen, Security business general manager, CA Technologies. “CA Privileged Access Management offers a comprehensive, end-to-end solution for controlling privileged access across hybrid IT environments – including cloud, virtual and distributed systems at both the network and server.”
“Privilege Access Management solutions significantly increase company security and reduce IT costs by helping prevent breaches that can result in data loss, damage of the company’s reputation or interruptions in operations.”, said Mihai Scemtovici, general manager, SolvIT Networks.
