CA Technologies Scales Up PAM
October 4, 2017
new release of CA Privileged Access Management (PAM) solution
addresses scalability and performance needs for departmental and
geographical expansion. CA PAM 3.0 gives companies the ability
to scale their PAM deployments across multiple departments, and
provides Managed Service Providers (MSPs) a helpful way to
manage multiple instances of the product for their customer base
across platforms and infrastructures.
The scalability of a Privileged Access Management solution is
critical to ensure organizations can address and control cyber
risk coming from trusted users in any environment. As
deployments increase to manage and monitor access expand across
geographies, departments and hybrid environments, the
architectural considerations can cause challenges in aligning
infrastructure allocation with operating systems and databases.
CA PAM supports these requirements with enhanced features that
enable greater control across the diversity of user access
points, and has features that make it simple for Security
Administrators to extend their enforcement, control and
monitoring of users.
Whether privileged access comes in the form of "root,"
"administrator" and "superuser" accounts, or application, API or
service accounts with elevated privilege, effectively managing
all points of privileged access becomes even more of a challenge
in these dynamic cloud environments. This is not because these
environments are inherently unsecure, but because aspects of
security (especially with regard to the varied levels of
privileged access) are often overlooked.*

• Augmented session recording encryption and crypto module
enhancements across deployments of all sizes.
• Localization that delivers CA PAM capabilities to the Japanese
market. As demand for more integrated, global security solutions
grow, CA PAM offers multinational companies the ability to
manage a single solution with multiple instances.
Gartner recommends that security and risk management leaders
responsible for delivering IAM capabilities “Deploy session
recording as soon as possible, because this capability will add
accountability and visibility for privileged activity. Include
this capability as part of your selection process.”**
“Security should never be a hindrance to growth and business
evolution, but an enabler through an intelligent, risk-based
approach,” says Mordecai Rosen, senior vice president and
general manager of CA Security Business. “The need for
privileged access management only grows with more and more
digital identities created every day. The key to maturing a PAM
solution is to ensure that it can adjust, adapt and scale with
your business throughout your journey of digital
