CA Technologies empowers mobility in APJ with enterprise-focused mobility solutions
CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced new solutions and capabilities to help enterprises embrace enterprise mobility in Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ). 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.
”Enterprise Mobility is a game changer for many organizations facing an increasingly mobile workforce and a surging bring-your-own-device culture among IT-savvy information workers. CA Technologies enables CIOs to embrace enterprise mobility by helping to ensure the security of enterprise mobile assets, management of multiple devices, diversity and management of mobile platforms, and investments in making mobile applications,” said Vic Mankotia, vice president, Solution Strategy, APJ.
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 acceleration;
•Transformation of existing technology to support Enterprise Mobility; and “Mobilizing” CA Technologies enterprise solutions.
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 Bring-your-own-device (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.
The addition of MDM, along with a strong roadmap of Mobile Email, 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 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 in April 2013, 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.
•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.
