CA Southern Africa has signed a partnership agreement with security specialists Nclose. The deal will see the two companies collaborating to provide security solutions to clients across all industries, but with a special focus on retail.
“We feel that CA’s security solutions are unique in the marketplace because, much like Nclose, their approach to security is highly proactive. CA also looks strategically at the security business drivers and not just the technology that underpins it,” says Stephen Osler, business development director at Nclose.
“In particular, we appreciate their dedication to gaining market share, and we view this partnership as an excellent fit.”
Nclose has operated as a specialist security solution provider to a growing range of clients for the past six years. It recently announced the formation of a consulting arm under the leadership of Andrew Meyer, an industry veteran with significant experience in both the retail and banking security spaces.
CA provides a complete range of security solutions based on a comprehensive identity and access management platform that is flexible and proactive. This enables customers to: securely deliver new online services quickly; drive collaboration among employees and partners; reduce the cost of security and compliance management; and protect key assets from a growing range of sophisticated threats.
“Today’s business environment is extremely demanding from a security point of view. Customers, employees and business partners alike want: anytime, anywhere, access to corporate systems using a multiplicity of devices, and the security solution has to enable this while protecting data,” says Steve van der Berg, regional manager at CA Southern Africa.
“We are confident that Nclose’s specialist focus on security will complement our approach to providing intelligent, proactive security solutions that adapt to changing threats and the needs of businesses.”
