CA to Buy Role-Based Identity Management Vendor Eurekify

CA has agreed to purchase Eurekify for an undisclosed sum. The deal is meant to deepen CA's ability to offer role-based identity and compliance management and is the fruit of several months of collaboration between the two vendors.

CA has made a deal to snag Eurekify in a bid to deepen CA's abilities in role-based identity and compliance management.

The terms of the deal were not disclosed, but the purchase is the culmination of several months of collaboration on the integration and sale of Eurekify technology as part of the larger CA Security Management Business Unit solution. At the center of Eurekify's role modeling capabilities is an engine that uses pattern-based analytics to reduce the time and effort involved in role management.

With this acquisition, CA officials hope to deliver deeper product integration, as well continue to develop and extend the technology around role-based, business-driven identity management and access control.

"By bringing together two leaders in identity management, CA's acquisition of Eurekify is transforming the market dynamics in that highly fragmented sector," said Dave Hansen, corporate senior vice president and general manager of CA Security Management, in a statement. "Eurekify is CA's second acquisition in the security space in two months, coming on the heels of our purchase of IDFocus in October. These acquisitions, along with our organically developed products, ensure CA's continued strength in the growing security market."

The deal is expected to close by the end of the month.
