CA buys IDFocus for identity management boost

More reliance on compliance

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

In brief Enterprise software omnicorp CA has acquired Palo Alto, CA-based IDFocus to blend the firm's identity management software with its own CA Identity Manager.

The purchase is intended to bolster CA Identity Manager's regulatory compliance. Users set up segregation of duties (SoD) policies on IDFocus software, which then runs a check to identify SoD violations before user provisioning is allowed to take place.

CA said IDFocus takes provisioning to "a more specific, finer-grained entitlements level." By combining the management suites together, users can link workflows and approvers to very specific user attributes, CA said.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. CA battles against a number of large vendors in the ID management space, including IBM, Sun, and Oracle. ®
