Citrix And CA Technologies Sign Agreement To Integrate NetScaler And SiteMinder

Stocks in this article: CACTXS

Citrix and CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA) today announced an agreement to enable integration of the Citrix NetScaler® SDX™ service delivery networking platform with CA SiteMinder®, a leading access management solution. This planned integration will consolidate the capabilities of CA SiteMinder® Secure Proxy Server (SPS) onto the NetScaler appliance, creating a unique solution for customers that will solve the problem of device, application and information diversity; while simplifying user authentication and providing secure, high performance access.

Consumers today have become more mobile and the use of heterogeneous devices for information access has added significant complexity to how users securely access corporate data and applications. While critical network entry points need to support a range of traditionally separate functions, it has become more important for identity and access management solutions to seamlessly blend into the network infrastructure with simplified deployment. A unified access infrastructure that works across applications and network layers is now needed. The planned integration of NetScaler SDX and CA SiteMinder will bring together the ability to host multiple networking instances on a single hardware appliance with the enterprise-class secure single sign-on (SSO) and flexible identity access management needed to authenticate users and control access to applications. The combined solution will lower total cost of ownership for the respective technologies, while delivering secure and simplified policy administration.

With the solution from Citrix and CA Technologies that will be available later this year, enterprise IT will be able to consolidate hosting of the federated identity and SSO functions, VPN, application acceleration, application firewalling and load balancing into the NetScaler SDX platform without having to deploy discrete physical and virtual devices. As businesses embrace flexible, multifunction network policy engines to improve performance and operational efficiency, this integration of best-in-class policy delivery, identity and access management keeps information delivery flexible and economical. And as businesses increasingly embrace cloud architectures, delivering the above policy control in a hardened, multi-tenant SDX platform will enable enterprises to have fine-grained control of virtualized apps, desktops and mobile services - allowing IT to cater to individual business unit needs without compromising on compliance.
