ISLANDIA, N.Y. -- January 24, 2013

CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA) today announced that it has again been positioned
by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders Quadrant of two Gartner reports: Magic
Quadrant for Identity and Access Governance (IAG)*, and Magic Quadrant for
User Administration and Provisioning (UAP).**

“The adoption of mobile, cloud and social applications demands that identity
and access management (IAM) solutions transform to support new business models
and identity needs while still addressing compliance concerns. Our broad
portfolio of security solutions offers the functionality, ease of use and
multiple choices of delivery – on premise or cloud – that address the evolving
needs of our customers and prospects,” said Mike Denning, general manager,
Security business at CA Technologies. “We consider our position as a Leader in
these quadrants confirmation that we are advancing IAM transformation.”

Magic Quadrant for Identity and Access Governance

According to the report, Magic Quadrant for Identity and Access Governance*,
“Identity and access governance (IAG) is defined as (1) the process of
requesting, approving, certifying and auditing access to applications, data
and other IT services; and (2) the process of delivering security and business
intelligence (BI) on how identities are created, managed and used for access.
Software tools and services that provide support for most or all of this
process are known as IAG products.

“Today, IAG is the fastest-growing sector of identity and access management
(IAM). Gartner estimates that 2011 IAG product sales alone ranged from $200
million to $300 million, with estimated growth rates in 2012 continuing to
exceed 35 percent to 40 percent for most IAG vendors.”

CA GovernanceMinder™ was evaluated for this report.

Magic Quadrant for User Administration/Provisioning

The report, Magic Quadrant for User Administration / Provisioning**, states,
“User administration and provisioning (UAP) is a combination of administration
and analytics technologies that provide an effective foundation for
authentication and authorization in the enterprise. Characterized in this way,
user administration is a fundamental part of an overall IAM technology
strategy and program.

“UAP solutions address enterprise requirements to create, modify, disable and
delete identity objects across heterogeneous IT system infrastructures,
including OSs, databases, directories, business applications and security

Gartner analysts evaluated the following CA IAM solutions for this report: CA
IdentityMinder™, CA GovernanceMinder™ and CA User Activity Reporting.

According to this report, “By 2016, user administration/provisioning and
identity and access governance products will converge, creating a new market
for advanced identity analytics.

“In recognition of this trend, and the interdependence between provisioning
and IAG functions and processes, Gartner plans to create a combined UAP and
IAG Magic Quadrant beginning in 2013.”
