CA continue acquisition spree with Orchestria

Third security related purchase in three months sees CA take in data loss prevention

Enterprise software major CA has continued its foray into identity and access management by agreeing to purchase data loss prevention (DLP) provider Orchestria.

This is CA’s third security related acquisition in a matter of months demonstrating its approach to strengthing its portfolio.

The company plans to develop Orchestria’s offering and sell onwards into what is a rapidly growing DLP market. The solution is currently in use primarily across governmental, corporate and legal sectors due to compliance and privacy concerns.

“With this acquisition, CA will deliver one of the broadest and most advanced information security solutions in the market today and address the demand for a new generation of identity and access management,” said Dave Hansen, corporate senior vice president and general manager, CA Security Management. “We are continuing our aggressive plan to deliver to our customers a comprehensive solution for identity and access management to help meet their security, compliance and privacy needs.”

According to CA, the company plans to transform the way organisations think about DLP, identity management and information security overall. Organisations and auditors need to know who has access to data and what they can do with it at a role or user level.

Through the use of Orchestria’s DLP technology with CA identity and access management solutions, the company believes that organisations will now be able to consolidate and strengthen their security postures by including information-centric policies in the process of centrally managing users and roles, and their access throughout the enterprise.
