CA Technologies Extends Content-Aware Identity And Access Management, Delivers Security Solution For Microsoft SharePoint

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- RSA Conference – CA Technologies (CA: NASDAQ) today announced advancements to further build-out its Content-Aware Identity and Access management (IAM) vision and deliver a security solution for Microsoft® SharePoint® to help improve information security, reduce risk and meet compliance mandates.

Traditional IAM stops at the point of access. CA Technologies Content-Aware IAM vision, a next-generation approach, takes IAM a step further to help control users, their access and how they handle information. This innovative approach helps organizations protect critical information from inappropriate use or disclosure.

"Balancing business productivity and enablement with security and data protection is one of the top priorities for the Chief Security Officer. This is made more difficult by today's collaborative environments that include extended teams from within and outside an organization," said Mike Denning, general manager, Security, CA Technologies. "For example, there are more than 65,000 Microsoft SharePoint customers, which equates to a lot of users accessing a lot of data. The challenge is to make sure the right users access the right data and handle it in the right way, which requires a layered security approach that includes Content-Aware Identity and Access Management from CA Technologies."

To help address these challenges, CA Technologies is adding capabilities and integrating new releases of CA SiteMinder® and CA DataMinder™ (formerly CA DLP), to deliver a Content-Aware security solution and help organizations protect the information stored, accessed and used in the Microsoft SharePoint environment. The CA SiteMinder and CA DataMinder updates, and resulting solution for SharePoint, will be available in March.

"Organizations are challenged with unknown Personally Identifiable Information (PII) that exists within documents residing across the enterprise," said Jeremy Britton, director, security & privacy services, Deloitte & Touche LLP. "The ability to identify and classify potential data risks in content, and control access based on the levels of risk, allows organizations to more effectively manage regulatory compliance and protection of sensitive data."

CA Technologies Solution for Microsoft SharePoint

As organizations expand their use of Microsoft SharePoint , they may face accelerated growth of siloed SharePoint instances, the proliferation of sensitive data across the SharePoint environment and increased compliance mandates.

CA DataMinder includes CA DataMinder™ Classification, which dynamically scans, locates and classifies sensitive content stored within Microsoft SharePoint, including intellectual property, financial information and PII such as social security numbers, credit card numbers and other employee relevant data. CA SiteMinder 12.5 will be enhanced to use the content classification information from CA DataMinder as input for access policies to more precisely determine whether a user should be granted access to a document. This combination will provide more fine-grained and better defined access control, helping to improve the security of data without hampering productivity.
