Date: October 05, 2011

On behalf of CA Technologies, we appreciate your business and the opportunity to provide you with high-quality, innovative software and services. As part of our ongoing commitment to customer success, we regularly release updated versions of our products. Today, we are pleased to announce CA Access Control for Virtual Environments, a new solution that extends its identity and access management (IAM) security expertise, and complements and protects VMware virtual environments. CA Access Control for Virtual Environments helps customers confidently virtualize critical applications by addressing security and compliance concerns, and helping control privileged user access to the virtual environment.

Virtualization management tools provide IT administrators with tremendous flexibility and power to make significant, rapid changes to their virtual environments. This authority increases the insider threat and raises the need to protect virtual environments from user mistakes, misuse or blatant, malicious actions by those users with the most privilege.

CA Access Control for Virtual Environments helps customers:

  • Achieve compliance for their virtual data center through privileged user management for the hypervisor and guest virtual machines

  • Gain visibility and control over virtual environments with activity logging and privileged user password vaulting

  • Automate security operations and reduce security costs by applying security controls according to pre-set policies

  • Expedite adoption of virtualization technology for critical applications by improving security controls

  • Create a secure multi-tenant environment by isolating virtual machines through network zoning.
