CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced that BNL, one of Italy’s largest banking groups and a member of the European BNP Paribas Group, relies on CA Technologies Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions to manage enterprise IT security across its infrastructure. Role-based IAM, along with monitoring and tracking of security events related to the access to and the use of information, are an integral part of BNL’s comprehensive security management approach. Automating the bank’s security processes is critical for cost-savings and productivity. “With nearly 2.5 million retail accounts, 150,000 business accounts and 43,000 enterprise and government accounts, protecting internal and external customer data, and controlling and monitoring access to our IT systems and information are our top priorities,” explained Gilberto Pertile, BNL’s Chief Information Systems Security Officer. “CA Technologies IAM solutions provide us with the level of assurance we need to securely manage our customers’ data, while reducing risk, improving operational efficiencies and maintaining regulatory compliance.” CA ControlMinder™ (formerly CA Access Control) helps BNL manage and monitor system administrators and other privileged users. CA Technologies privileged identity management solutions deliver security process automation to BNL Group, helping it to increase user productivity and reduce costs. BNL has also implemented CA SiteMinder ®, CA IdentityMinder™ (formerly CA Identity Manager), and CA GovernanceMinder™ (formerly CA Role & Compliance Manager). With these IAM solutions, BNL streamlines user activity, provides compliance reporting for privileged and non-privileged users, automates provisioning and application access based on a user's relationship and role with the organization— regardless of whether they are internal employees or external contractors, customers or business partners. The CA Technologies professional services organization partnered with BNL on the implementation, leveraging time-to-value best practices that accelerate integration of the IAM portfolio and help ensure its alignment with the customer’s business needs.
