CA Technologies has signed a deal with NTT Com Security to host CA CloudMinder Identity and Access Management (IAM) software-as-a-service solution in Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ) region.
The deal enables CA to provide identity management, authentication and single sign-on as-a-service locally.
“CA CloudMinder is a game-changing SaaS solution that addresses a critical need in an increasingly complex IT security environment within our region,” said William Yeack CSE, president of Asia Pacific, NTT Com Security.
NTT Com Security, an information security and risk management solutions provider, will host CA CloudMinder via its group data centers across the APJ region, helping local customers address data sovereignty policies in certain markets.
“The use of cloud, social networking tools, and mobile devices and applications have opened the enterprise and erased any security perimeter that may have existed. It has created a hybrid IT environment that puts new demands on security professionals,” said Mike Denning, senior vice president and general manager, Security, CA Technologies.
CA CloudMinder provides IAM for cloud-based or on-premise applications in a scalable, multi-tenant, IAM as-a-Service solution. With extended support for social identities and on-premise and cloud applications such as Microsoft Office 365, CA CloudMinder helps IT departments reduce the complexities of managing IAM.
