CA Technologies (CA: NASDAQ) announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of two Gartner reports: Magic Quadrant for Identity and Access Governance (IAG)*, and Magic Quadrant for User Administration and Provisioning.**
"As data moves to the cloud, identity and access management grows in importance within organizations. Our team is working to ensure we deliver the functionality, ease of use, and multiple choices of delivery - on premise or cloud - that simplify IAM adoption for our customers," said Vic Mankotia, VP, Security, Asia Pacific at CA Technologies. "We consider our positioning in two IAM-related Leaders quadrants confirmation that we are delivering on our mission to take our rich and broad portfolio of security technologies and deliver unique and transformative IAM capabilities for our customers."
Magic Quadrant for Identity and Access Governance
According to the report, Magic Quadrant for Identity and Access Governance, "The IAG market addresses customer requirements that are beyond identity administration. IAG tools seek to deliver IAM directly to the business or end user, rather than the operational IT administrator." Gartner analysts anticipate, "The growing need for identity and access management governance will cause identity and access governance solutions to become the lead focus of two out of three IAM projects by 2013, up from one in three today."
Magic Quadrant for User Administration/Provisioning
"User administration solutions manage identities and their attributes across systems, applications and resources. Buyers seek to demonstrate regulatory compliance while reducing project deployment times and costs," analysts wrote in the Magic Quadrant for User Administration / Provisioning. "By 2016, user administration solutions will expand functionally to include a subset of identity and access governance (IAG) functionality as well as multiple means of delivery (that is, cloud computing)."
