Insider threats eliminated

Privileged identity management gets a boost.

CA Southern Africa has announced the addition of new features and functionality to CA Access Control that help customers address critical needs in privileged identity management.

The new features allow for centrally controlling, monitoring and auditing privileged users. It also provides temporary privileged from a single management console.

“It is generally known but seldom publicly discussed that the most serious threats today come from within companies,” says Gary Lawrence, MD, CA Southern Africa. “Most IT departments run privileged user accounts for their IT administrators, which give them extensive access to IT systems. However, the inability to properly control and audit privileged access can create a serious security threat. The number of reported insider breaches in recent years around the world has shown this.”

Research and reports from the US market suggest that the misuse of privileged administrator credentials is the largest cause of data breaches.

“The new capabilities in CA Access Control offer secure use of privileged accounts within applications and address the growing security and compliance needs for privileged user monitoring,” says Lawrence.

The new features add to the established abilities of the CA Access Control product and meet new security needs.

“Security remains a primary concern, whether the threats are external or internal,” says Lawrence. “The concern is that internal threats are both increasing and more damaging to the customer’s business. The new abilities of CA Access Control provide powerful tools to manage privileged users’ accounts and minimise this growing risk.”
