BT signs CA Secure Cloud managed services pact

More cloud ecosystem moves UK carrier integrates cloud security software.


CA Technologies identity and access management (IAM) solution for managed service providers CA Secure Cloud, has been integrated into BT’s managed identity service, BT Assure Cloud Identity.

The companies said that by using the enterprise-grade IAM capabilities within CA Secure Cloud, BT’s solution will protect business data in the cloud, on-premise or in hybrid IT systems.

Controlling access to BT customers’ on-premise and cloud applications, CA Secure Cloud is the core IAM technology behind the Assure Cloud Identity service.

The firms said the control includes provisioning and management of users, federated single sign-on for software-as-a-service (SaaS) and on-premise applications, and protection against inappropriate access and fraud through advanced authentication services that incorporate multi-factor and behavioural analytics to make the process as seamless as possible.

Assure Cloud Identity is hosted and available in the UK within dual resilient data centres. The service would be made available throughout Europe and other regions progressively.

Mark Hughes, president, BT Security, said: "As a managed service, Assure Cloud Identity gives our customers the confidence and convenience of protecting critical data from loss or improper use, no matter where it resides.

"They are able to do this, without a significant investment into hardware or staffing to support the technology and they free up time and resource for their core business."
