LAS VEGAS -- April 22, 2013

CA WORLD – CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced new solutions and
capabilities to help enterprises embrace the mobile opportunity with
confidence and improve how they connect with employees and customers. CA
Technologies innovative approach to enabling enterprise mobility goes
beyond-the-device to manage and secure the complex ecosystem that makes up the
mobile enterprise.

“Enterprises have cited several key challenges to embracing mobility: the
security of enterprise assets, the proliferation of heterogeneous devices, the
diversity and management of mobile platforms, and the cost of making
applications ‘mobile-ready,’” said Ram Varadarajan, general manager, New
Business Innovation, CA Technologies. “We are helping our customers address
all those challenges and more with a robust set of solutions to drive the
benefits of enterprise mobility including: innovation and business growth
through better customer engagements, improved employee productivity by
enabling BYOD* and secure collaboration, and automated IT management with
mobile-enabled technologies.”

Today’s announcement highlights new mobility solutions and updates to several
existing products that drive CA Technologies strategy to help customers
mobilize their business from every angle – user, device, data and
applications. These capabilities include:

  * Mobile device management (MDM), mobile application management (MAM),
    mobile content management (MCM) and mobile services management
  * Mobile application acceleration;
  * Mobile transformation of existing technology to support mobility; and
  * “Mobilizing” CA Technologies enterprise solutions.

“Our customers are looking for us to provide essential technology solutions to
take advantage of the mobile opportunity. After thoughtful evaluation, we have
licensed the proven and market-leading SAP Afaria mobile device management
solution to provide this capability to our customers and serve as a key
component for us to build other solutions,” Varadarajan said. “We
differentiate ourselves from other MDM vendors with the breadth of our
offerings. Our current and future solutions help IT leaders become the de
facto change-agent for their business by accelerating, transforming and
securing enterprise mobility for business innovation and growth.”

CA Mobile Device Management (CA MDM) – provides the capabilities necessary to
secure and manage mobile users, devices, applications and content (data).
Delivered as a scalable, software-as-a-service model or as an on-premise
solution, CA MDM improves productivity by enabling a BYOD strategy and
providing a simple, intuitive and self-service enterprise app store. It also
automates IT management with real-time insight into mobile device status and
usage, along with automated device enrollment, configuration and
decommissioning.

“SAP has had tremendous success partnering with CA Technologies to help our
customers further secure and manage SAP solutions within the enterprise,” said
Sanjay Poonen, president of Technology Solutions and head of the Mobile
Division, SAP. “By choosing SAP Afaria as a key component of its mobile
strategy, CA Technologies is now equipped with the industry’s leading
enterprise mobility management solution, which will play a critical role in
transforming the role of IT management.”

Beyond MDM

The addition of MDM, along with a strong roadmap of Mobile Content,
Application and back-end Services Management scheduled for delivery later this
year, provides CA Technologies with a comprehensive set of mobility solutions
to help customers win in their marketplaces.

  * CA Mobile Application Management (CA MAM) – helps convert unmanaged mobile
    applications into managed applications by embedding security,
    supportability and control within the applications.
  * CA Mobile Content Management (CA MCM) – enables secure access and
    collaboration across mobile devices regardless of where the content is
    located – the enterprise or the cloud.
  * CA Mobile Services Management – drives reliability, availability and
    security across the mobile infrastructure for an optimal customer and
    employee experience as they access enterprise applications and resources
    via mobile devices.

CA Technologies is also innovating in the area of mobile payments. With
incubation projects focused on payments with mobile devices and mobile
wallets, CA Technologies is clearing the path for new, future transactional
models to drive business growth.

Mobile Transformation of Current Solutions

A key differentiator in CA Technologies solutions for enterprise mobility is
the ability to facilitate the transformational shift in the mobile marketplace
that is centered on APIs and their importance for accelerating mobile
application development and delivery, externalizing core business assets and
driving new revenue channels for business growth.

Through the acquisition of Layer 7 Technologies, announced today, CA
Technologies will offer secure and efficient Mobile Application Acceleration
and access by seamlessly integrating and managing mobility initiatives across
backend systems, security and infrastructure. By incorporating Layer 7
solutions into its portfolio, CA will help leverage existing application
environments; enable third party developer networks; and secure and govern API
usage.

Security, like other IT management functions, is a must-have across any
computing paradigm – from mobile to the mainframe. Enhancements to the
company’s advanced authentication, data protection, and access management
technologies are driving employee productivity and business growth. For
example:

  * CA AuthMinder™, CA RiskMinder™  and CA CloudMinder™Advanced Authentication
    help reduce the risk of fraud with enhancements for transactions on mobile
    devices and incorporating additional device information into risk
    assessments.
  * CA DataMinder™ helps secure collaboration for mobile users with
    intelligent data-centric security for mobile messaging and file sync and
    sharing. Support for various third-party software vendors such as Box and
    Dropbox enables cloud-based information sharing.
  * CA SiteMinder^® helps improve mobile user engagement and productivity by
    providing convenient single sign-on for mobile or Web applications to
    manage user access and security.

“Customers want to connect with business in the way that’s most convenient to
them – and today that method is through a mobile device,” said Giampaolo
Franchi, Postecom (Gruppo Poste Italiane). “It’s important for Poste Italiane
to offer mobile options to our customers for a variety of services, but we
need to do it securely. Our collaboration with CA Technologies to engage our
customers on their mobile devices and protect online transactions is important
for innovating and growing our business.”
