CA has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Eurekify, a pioneer in identity and role management. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

"By bringing together two leaders in identity management, CA's acquisition of Eurekify is transforming the market dynamics in that highly fragmented sector," says Gary Lawrence, country manager at CA Africa. "Eurekify is CA's second acquisition in the security space in two months, coming on the heels of our purchase of IDFocus in October. These acquisitions, along with our organically developed products, ensure CA's continued strength in the growing security market."
CA has successfully collaborated with Eurekify for the past several months on the integration and sale of Eurekify technology as part of the larger CA Security Management Business Unit solution. The CA-Eurekify solution addresses the growing demand for a new generation of identity and access management (IAM) solutions that are business-centric.
With this acquisition, CA can deliver deeper product integration, and continued development and extension of products, particularly those that facilitate role-based, business-driven identity management and access control.
The combination of CA Identity Manager with Eurekify Enterprise Role Manager delivers a system which helps customers clean up existing identity data and build a role model with the best available information. This model serves as the foundation to automate the user provisioning process and enhances identity lifecycle management.
Important to the success of Eurekify's role modeling capabilities is an advanced analytics engine. It uses pattern-based analytics to reduce the time and effort involved in traditionally labour-intensive duties within role management that often derailed identity management projects. It also helps deliver business-driven "smart
provisioning" for real-time enhancements of identity and non-identity business processes.
