CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA) today announced that CA Privileged Access Manager (PAM), a comprehensive solution delivering both network- and host-based controls for the enterprise and hybrid cloud, has been certified as part of the SailPoint Identity+ Alliance program to seamlessly integrate with SailPoint IdentityIQ. When combined via this certified integration, the offering delivers a comprehensive privileged identity governance solution to the enterprise.
Evolving regulations and security guidelines are mandating that organizations certify privileged access on a periodic basis. While certification can be handled within the identity management system, tracing privileged account usage back to individual users can be easier when privileged access management and identity governance systems are integrated.
The integration of CA PAM with SailPoint IdentityIQ will allow SailPoint users to actively manage privileged access accounts and users, certify privileged access and remediate or remove access when necessary – all from a single console and across all applications running on-premises and in the cloud.
“In today’s global marketplace, the need for secure access to privileged accounts is growing,” said Jeremy Britton, Deloitte Risk and Financial Advisory Cyber Risk Services managing director, Deloitte & Touche LLP. “Integrations such as this one between CA PAM and SailPoint IdentityIQ can help organizations address these needs and control security risks as they look to derive greater value from their IT portfolio.”
“Enterprises are establishing privileged identity governance programs to do a better job of protecting privileged accounts from targeted attacks and to satisfy evolving compliance and audit requirements,” said Joe Gottlieb, senior vice president of corporate development at SailPoint. “The integration of these two critical systems will enable our joint customers to combine the deep security controls of privileged access management with the horizontal policy and life cycle controls of identity governance.”
Both SailPoint IdentityIQ and CA PAM are purpose-built to operate in today’s complex hybrid IT environments and can unify privileged access and identity management processes across cloud, mobile and on-premises environments. Additional features include:
• Automated provisioning and de-provisioning of privileged access entitlements
• Centralized location and reporting for privileged access requests and approvals
• Streamlined certification of user access to privileged accounts
“Choice and flexibility are key for cybersecurity customers where ‘best-of-breed’ solutions are required to ensure digital trust across the enterprise and beyond,” said Mordecai Rosen, general manager, Security at CA Technologies. “Combining CA PAM with SailPoint’s IdentityIQ solution helps organizations mitigate the risk of a major security breach due to malicious misuse or compromise of privileged accounts.”
