Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Computer Associates is claiming leadership in the enterprise management software market following the release of two IDC reports showing it way ahead of IBM in revenues. According to System Management Software: 1998 Worldwide Markets And Trends, CA has 25.3 per cent of the global system management software market and revenues of $2.25 billion, while Distributed Operations Management Market--1996-2002 puts it at $923 million revenue in international client/server operations management. IBM scored $1.7 billion and 318 million in the two sectors respectively. In sub-categories, CA also ranked first in distributed performance management software, distributed storage management and distributed job scheduling. According to IDC Infrastructure Software research VP Paul Mason, CA's strong position derives from its ability to integrate multiple network, system and application management disciplines: "CA has clearly covered more of these bases for more customers around the world than anybody else, and their Unicenter TNG and other product revenues and market share make this abundantly clear." ®
