CA Technologies Positioned in Leaders Quadrant of Gartner Magic Quadrant for User Authentication

09:30 EDT Monday, April 08, 2013

ISLANDIA, N.Y. (Business Wire) -- CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced that it has again been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for User Authentication*. CA AuthMinder™ and CA RiskMinder™, the company's on-premise strong authentication solutions, and CA CloudMinder™ Advanced Authentication, the authentication-as-a-service component of CA CloudMinder, were evaluated for this report.

In the report Gartner predicts that, "by 2017, more than 50 percent of enterprises will choose cloud-based services as the delivery option for new or refreshed user authentication implementations — up from less than 10 percent today. However, it is likely that on-premises solutions will persist in the longer term, especially in more risk-averse enterprises that want to retain full control of identity administration, credentialing and verification.”

“We are living in a hybrid world when it comes to IT. Very few, if any, organizations today are using ‘all cloud' or ‘all on-premises' solutions, especially when it comes to security,” said Mike Denning, senior vice president and general manager, Security business at CA Technologies. “Our ability to provide identity and access management, advanced authentication and data protection solutions delivered on premises or as-a-service is perfectly aligned with this hybrid reality.”

“We are proud to be placed in the Leader's Quadrant for user authentication, as well as in three other recent Gartner Magic Quadrant reports, including the Magic Quadrant for Identity and Access Governance**; the Magic Quadrant for User Administration and Provisioning***; and the Magic Quadrant for Content-Aware Data Loss Prevention****. We are working to keep these leader positions as we build the security solutions our customers need, delivered the way they want,” said Denning.
