New Delhi [India], Nov 17 (ANI-NewsVoir): CA WORLD '16 - CA Technologies today announced a new behavior analytics solution that integrates with CA Privileged Access Manager (PAM). Called CA Threat Analytics for PAM, the product features machine-learning capabilities for better threat detection and breach prevention associated with privileged users.

CA also announced CA Identity Service, a new, turn-key identity-as-a-service solution, to address Identity and Access Management (IAM) needs for both on-premises and cloud-based applications.

"By applying CA's unmatched self-learning behavior analytics to privileged user activity, CA can help CISOs with their biggest challenge: staying one step ahead of the bad actors," said Mordecai Rosen, Senior Vice President and General Manager, CA Security business. "Going beyond protection, CA is extending secure business operations with CA Identity Service to support deeply embedded on-premises systems while taking advantage of the agility of cloud applications and services."

Setting New Standards in Threat Detection, Breach Prevention and IDaaS for Hybrid IT Environments

Available today, CA Threat Analytics for PAM models privileged user behavior and evaluates risk based on factors such as a user location, time and duration of activity, the data being accessed and the user's track record for security and past behavior. When a breach or threat is detected, the system automatically triggers controls to mitigate risks, such as starting session recording, initiating a stronger authentication procedure or alerting security system and operations.

In a recent global survey conducted by Coleman Parkes for CA, 82 percent of respondents said identity-centric security is critical to the business.* CA Identity Service addresses the need for a modern, hybrid IAM solution - giving businesses the agility to quickly and securely adopt cloud applications and services alongside their on-premises applications controlled by CA Single Sign-On, managing everything from a single launch pad. CA Identity Service balances the demand for security, agility and a positive user experience.

"We see our customers' businesses moving increasingly to a hybrid IT environment. It's clear we need to help them with an identity and access management solution that supports both their cloud-based and on-premises applications," said Ed Pascua, Senior Vice President at Simeio Solutions. "CA Identity Service offers the flexibility and management we need to meet the demands of our customers' hybrid enterprise. CA's Identity Service is an excellent tool that helps Simeio Solutions deliver a high level of customer satisfaction."

CA Identity Service is available today and can be accessed for free trial.

These new products are part of CA's software portfolio that gives companies the ability to sense, react and adapt to market shifts and operational security needs, resulting in the agility advantage that a strong security posture provides. They successfully protect the business while enabling it to build the trusted digital relationships necessary to compete and win in the application economy. (ANI-NewsVoir)
