CA Technologies has been positioned by Gartner, Inc., in the Leaders quadrant of the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Identity Governance and Administration (IGA).
The report evaluated CA Identity Suite, a comprehensive identity management and access governance solution with a simple, intuitive user experience.
Vendors were evaluated on their ability to execute and completeness of vision.
According to the report: “IGA Leaders deliver a comprehensive toolset for governance and administration of identity and access. These vendors have successfully built a significant installed customer base and revenue stream, and have high viability ratings and robust revenue growth.
“Leaders also show evidence of superior vision and execution for anticipated requirements related to technology, methodology or means of delivery. Leaders typically demonstrate customer satisfaction with IGA capabilities and/or related service and support.”
In a survey of more than 100 CA Identity Suite Users, 70% report that using CA Identity Suite has reduced costs more than 25%.
The virtual appliance reduces costs even further with installation and configuration time going from days to minutes.
Organisations also can avoid high recurring software licensing costs with the appliance providing pre-installed instances of an operating system, application server and directory.
“Identity and governance administration isn’t just about compliance; it’s also about protecting the expanded attack surface that we see in today’s hybrid IT environments,” says Sagan Pillay, solutions strategist: security at CA Southern Africa.
“CA Identity Suite is a comprehensive IGA solution that helps our customers secure their enterprises by proactively managing identity and access rights for all their users and applications, whether in the cloud or on-premises.”
