CA Technologies Scales Up Privileged Access Management for Large Enterprise and Managed Service Deployments
CA (News - Alert) Technologies (NASDAQ:CA) today announced a new release of its CA
Privileged Access Management (PAM) solution that addresses scalability
and performance needs for departmental and geographical expansion. CA
PAM 3.0 gives companies the ability to scale their PAM deployments
across multiple departments, and provides Managed Service Providers
(MSPs) a helpful way to manage multiple instances of the product for
their customer base across platforms and infrastructures.
The scalability of a Privileged Access Management solution is critical
to ensure organizations can address and control cyber risk coming from
trusted users in any environment. As deployments increase to manage and
monitor access expand across geographies, departments and hybrid
environments, the architectural considerations can cause challenges in
aligning infrastructure allocation with operating systems and databases.
CA PAM supports these requirements with enhanced features that enable
greater control across the diversity of user access points, and has
features that make it simple for Security Administrators to extend their
enforcement, control and monitoring of users.
Whether privileged access comes in the form of "root,"
"administrator" and "superuser" accounts, or application, API or service
accounts with elevated privilege, effectively managing all points of
privileged access becomes even more of a challenge in these dynamic
cloud environments. This is not because these environments are
inherently unsecure, but because aspects of security (especially with
regard to the varied levels of privileged access) are often overlooked.*
New features of CA PAM to reduce cyber risk from trusted users include:
A new simplified Management Console designed to provide visibility
across security-as-a-service and multi-department deployments.
Enhanced clustering capabilities and concurrent session performance
assures large, global enterprises and MSPs consistent policy across
clusters and instances.
Augmented session recording encryption and crypto module enhancements
across deployments of all sizes.
Localization that delivers CA PAM capabilities to the Japanese market.
As demand for more integrated, global security solutions grow, CA PAM
offers multinational companies the ability to manage a single solution
with multiple instances.
Gartner (News - Alert) recommends that security and risk management leaders responsible
for delivering IAM capabilities "Deploy session recording as soon as
possible, because this capability will add accountability and visibility
for privileged activity. Include this capability as part of your
"Security should never be a hindrance to growth and business evolution,
but an enabler through an intelligent, risk-based approach," says
Mordecai Rosen, senior vice president and general manager of CA Security
Business. "The need for privileged access management only grows with
more and more digital identities created every day. The key to maturing
a PAM solution is to ensure that it can adjust, adapt and scale with
your business throughout your journey of digital transformation."
