CA, Mycroft Close Cloud Identity Gap with Managed Offering

CA Technologies and Mycroft have partnered to deliver the full range of CA identity and access management (IAM) solutions as a service. Together, the two security-minded companies plan on helping organizations address compliance and efficiency needs.

As you may recall from the recent launch of its Heimdall IAM solution for SaaS applications, Mycroft has a certain expertise in the cloud identity space. Mycroft Managed Security Service for CA Technologies extends that expertise even further, offering “a quick-start identity and access management solution through the delivery of a full range of pre-configured CA IAM security products in a fully managed, private cloud environment,” according to the press release.

Key benefits include higher security service scalability and lower TCO on a subscription-based model, as is often the case with cloud solutions. Mycroft built this solution on top of the CA AppLogic cloud platform, and its security experts keep an eye on customer deployments 24/7.

In a prepared statement, VP of Product Management for CA Technologies IAM Security business Lina Liberti explained how this Mycroft partnership speaks to CA’s overall security-as-a-service strategy and channel partnerships:

“This relationship also represents a key part of our business strategy for identity management. Our intent is to give customers a choice in how they use our IAM software to address their security and compliance needs, whether it’s as a service, on premise or a mix of the two. We will work with solution providers like Mycroft to deliver our software as a service, and at the same time, we will build on the success of our CA Arcot Advanced Authentication Cloud Service and introduce other identity management capabilities from the cloud.”

The booming demand for cloud services carries with it a heightened customer need for IAM solutions — and service providers are racing to fill that gap.
