Business Wire

ISLANDIA, N.Y. -- April 8, 2013

CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced that it has again been positioned
by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for User
Authentication*. CA AuthMinder™ and CA RiskMinder™, the company’s on-premise
strong authentication solutions, and CA CloudMinder™ Advanced Authentication,
the authentication-as-a-service component of CA CloudMinder, were evaluated
for this report.

In the report Gartner predicts that, "by 2017, more than 50 percent of
enterprises will choose cloud-based services as the delivery option for new or
refreshed user authentication implementations — up from less than 10 percent
today. However, it is likely that on-premises solutions will persist in the
longer term, especially in more risk-averse enterprises that want to retain
full control of identity administration, credentialing and verification.”

“We are living in a hybrid world when it comes to IT. Very few, if any,
organizations today are using ‘all cloud’ or ‘all on-premises’ solutions,
especially when it comes to security,” said Mike Denning, senior vice
president and general manager, Security business at CA Technologies. “Our
ability to provide identity and access management, advanced authentication and
data protection solutions delivered on premises or as-a-service is perfectly
aligned with this hybrid reality.”

“We are proud to be placed in the Leader’s Quadrant for user authentication,
as well as in three other recent Gartner Magic Quadrant reports, including the
Magic Quadrant for Identity and Access Governance**; the Magic Quadrant for
User Administration and Provisioning***; and the Magic Quadrant for
Content-Aware Data Loss Prevention****. We are working to keep these leader
positions as we build the security solutions our customers need, delivered the
way they want,” said Denning.
