CA Technologies Completes Layer 7 Acquisition

09:00 EDT Wednesday, June 05, 2013

ISLANDIA, N.Y. (Business Wire) -- CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced it has completed the acquisition of privately-held Layer 7 Technologies, a leading provider of Application Programming Interface (API) security and management.

The acquisition of Layer 7 will enable CA Technologies to provide leading security and management technology to the API marketplace that complements its Identity and Access Management suite, including CA SiteMinder®, as well as solutions focused on DevOps including the CA LISA® suite. The combination of CA Technologies and Layer 7 solutions will help customers better secure and manage APIs and deliver confidently and quickly the cloud, mobile and composite applications that run today's business services.

“Just as the Web created business opportunities by redefining how companies interact with consumers and employees, APIs are driving new opportunities by accelerating the shift to mobile apps, cloud services and the Internet of Things. Those opportunities, however, don't come without risk,” said Mike Denning, general manager and senior vice president, Security, CA Technologies. “The addition of Layer 7 and the synergy across our identity and access management and data protection technologies helps protect our customers' sensitive and proprietary data so they can take advantage of these new forms of online business.”
