CA Technologies Streamlines Identity and Access Management for the Hybrid Enterprise with Latest Rollout of CA CloudMinder

CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced the next rollout of its CA CloudMinderTM identity and access management (IAM) service solution. With extended out-of-the-box support for social identities and additional on-premise and cloud applications such as Microsoft Office 365TM, CA CloudMinder helps organizations strengthen customer relationships, while streamlining how they manage users and their access for greater operational and cost efficiencies.

CA CloudMinder provides enterprise-grade IAM for both cloud-based or on-premise applications in a highly scalable multi-tenant IAM as-a-Service solution. The three components of CA CloudMinder can be deployed individually or together in a single, integrated IAM service:

  • CA CloudMinder Advanced Authentication protects against unapproved and unauthorized access using multiple forms of strong authentication and risk analysis to validate a user’s identity.
  • CA CloudMinder Identity Management provides user provisioning and de-provisioning to a broad set of on-premise applications and cloud services as well as comprehensive user management capabilities. With the ability to operate and synchronize with existing on-premise identity stores such as Active Directory or other LDAP-compliant directories, CA CloudMinder Identity Management leverages existing technologies for faster deployment.
  • CA CloudMinder Single Sign-On (SSO) supports today’s extended and hybrid enterprise with reliable identity federation in a unified, cloud-based single sign-on solution. Leveraging CA SiteMinder® technology, CA CloudMinder Single Sign-On is scalable and controls access for millions of users from within or outside an organization.

Companies have seen the benefits that IAM as-a-service can provide. “In one test, CA CloudMinder allowed a team to accomplish in just three days what had taken almost two months of building, installing, configuring and testing with an on-premise approach,” said Drew Koenig, president, CA Security Global User Community. “That company estimated it could employ CA CloudMinder for a reduced cost and get three IAM capabilities versus just one plus free up staff time. By not having to work on maintaining the on-premise infrastructure, the team can focus more on strategic identity initiatives.”

Leveraging CA Technologies leading IAM technology and more than a decade of experience providing Authentication as-a-Service, CA CloudMinder provides a single source of identity and access control across the hybrid enterprise and drives cost efficiencies through speed of deployment, predictability of expense and reduced infrastructure and management needs.

“Identity and access management demands are evolving as organizations employ different ways to save money and grow the business, such as incorporating cloud services, adopting bring-your-own-device policies and supporting social identities as a way to get closer to the customer,” said Mike Denning, general manager, Security business at CA Technologies. “This evolution and customer demand drove our vision for CA CloudMinder to be able to function as that single bridge that manages the identities and access for employees, partners and customers to cloud or on-premise applications no matter what device or what identity they chose to use.”

New capabilities in CA CloudMinder include:

Support for Social Identities: With support for OpenID, OAuth, WS-Fed and SAML, CA CloudMinder provides SSO and self-registration to vendor sites using Facebook and Google identities, helping to drive social media marketing campaigns. CA CloudMinder Advanced Authentication also adds step-up security to the typical user name and password login. Extending the support of CA CloudMinder to help drive customer engagement, satisfaction and retention increases the value of IAM to an organization beyond the traditional demands of security, compliance and operational efficiencies.

Extended Support for On Premise and Cloud Applications: CA CloudMinder helps organizations save money by reducing the time it takes to deploy identity management capabilities. By adding more than 30 connectors for provisioning, including support for Office 365, mainframes and other popular enterprise applications, CA CloudMinder has increased its number of out-of-the-box configurations for improved deployment time.

Support for IAM Choice: CA CloudMinder gives customers a choice in how they support their IAM needs on the operational back end, while streamlining management and administration on the front end. By connecting to the CA Technologies provisioning, federation and advanced authentication solutions already in place on-premise, CA CloudMinder preserves the investment in configuring those solutions as it unifies IAM administration into the CA CloudMinder interface. This gives customers a choice: they can use CA CloudMinder IAM as-a-service alone to manage all on-premise or cloud applications, or they can use a mix of CA CloudMinder with CA Technologies on-premise IAM solutions – all managed from a single user interface.

Partner Ecosystem

CA CloudMinder also presents a variety of opportunities for partners, including hosting the CA CloudMinder service operations in their own data center and / or managing the IAM administration on behalf of the customer in its tenant environment. These options enable partners to focus on their strengths, while leveraging CA Technologies IAM knowledge and experience.

“Efficiently managing identities and their access across the hybrid enterprise with an eye toward the future is a complex and resource-intensive challenge for many of the organizations we work with today,” said Jeremy Britton, a director in Deloitte & Touche LLP’s security & privacy practice and its CA alliance leader. “This is especially true with the large number of external users that businesses are now bringing into their applications. By combining an IAM service that can remove the hardware and operational burden with Deloitte’s application management offering, which provides the staff and knowledge to manage IAM administration, organizations can outsource their IAM function and apply resources to other areas to drive business growth.”

The latest release of CA CloudMinder is available today. Pricing starts with a base tenant set-up fee of $10,000 plus $5,000 per service. Monthly fees are based on the number and types of users (internal business users or external consumer users).
