CA's Identity Federation for Cloud Computing and SaaS Applications

CA Federation Manager supports standards such as SAML and WS-Federation

CA will participate in Burton Group's single sign-on interoperability demonstration for cloud applications Wednesday, July 29, in San Diego at Burton Group's Catalyst Conference. CA will show how CA Federation Manager provides Internet single sign-on and standards-based identity federation to help improve security when accessing multiple cloud and SaaS applications.

CA Federation Manager supports standards such as SAML and WS-Federation to help individuals in different organizations securely and easily access the data and applications of another organization, whether they reside in a private, public, internal or hybrid cloud environment. During the interop, CA Federation Manager -- which can act as an identity provider, a service provider, or both -- will demonstrate federation with Burton interop participants including Salesforce.com, Google Apps, Cisco WebEx, and others.

CA Federation Manager is a key product in CA's Secure Web Business Enablement solution. CA SiteMinder and CA SOA Security Manager round out the solution; these products can be deployed standalone or as an integrated offering that provides a breadth of Web security and Web access management capabilities for today's extended enterprise.

Burton Catalyst Conference attendees are invited to the CA hospitality suite in Aqua 306A on Wednesday, July 29 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The suite will include demonstrations of various CA Enterprise IT Management products that help enable Lean IT initiatives for reducing waste and maximizing the value of IT.
