CA Technologies Adds New Data-Centric Security Features
May 22, 2017

CA Technologies announced new data protection enhancements to CA Data Content Discovery and CA Compliance Event Manager that simplify security management across the enterprise and enable robust, end-to-end protection for data-in-motion from mobile to mainframe. The solution enables organizations of all sizes to better manage their data and address security and compliance needs.

The enhancements provide any IT team with:

- Enterprise-wide insights that export mainframe security incidents to Splunk for a single-pane-of-glass view of risks, enabling security and audit professionals to better manage security end to end in an enterprise.

- Support for data-in-motion that helps prevent loss of sensitive data on the mainframe with increased coverage of data sets to secure all core applications.

- Simplified security and compliance with new and enriched event reporting for non-mainframe experts to help triage faster.

As the IT workforce trends towards a younger, experience-hungry demographic, CA has designed new features to provide a simplified, yet thorough, dashboard that gives IT teams of any skill level the visibility to see and respond to potential vulnerabilities across the enterprise.

CA Data Content Discovery and CA Compliance Event Manager are the only data loss prevention solutions in the market that run 100 percent on and for the mainframe, and include all core mainframe applications with simpler reporting and coverage. From finding and classifying, to alerting and inspecting, these solutions provide unified enterprise security while helping to increase compliance posture across all platforms.

“The next generation mainframe is set to become the transaction platform of choice for mission-essential workloads. As companies start to consider how their transactional business takes place and begin to embrace newer technologies like machine learning, artificial intelligence and blockchain, securing the mainframe and data-in-motion is going to be crucial,” said Ashok Reddy, general manager, Mainframe and Workload Automation, CA Technologies. “CA’s mainframe security solutions are designed to support data-in-motion and work across the security lifecycle - from access control to data protection to compliance.”

According to IDC, “Compliance concerns are becoming top of mind for companies and having a large influence over purchasing decisions,” says Robert Ayoub, research director, Security Products, IDC. “Companies are looking for a way to harness the growing amount of data available to help address security issues.”
