CA Technologies expands security portfolio with Xceedium buy

The transaction is expected to be completed within the quarter.

By CBR Staff Writer

CA Technologies has signed a deal to acquire privileged identity management solutions provider Xceedium to boost its security offerings.

The acquisition will expand customer options for securing IT administrator accounts across hybrid IT environments.

Xceedium, which was established in 2000, is headquartered in Herndon, Virginia, and has offices in Jersey City, NJ, and Ottawa, Canada.

It offers privileged identity management to control administrator access and protect across cloud, data centre, and virtual environments.

The company holds four patents in the identity management area and works with customers in several markets such as finance, retail, manufacturing and federal government.

Xceedium’s Xsuite platform will be integrated with the CA Privileged Identity Manager to offer well-defined access controls across hybrid cloud deployments.

Xceedium CEO Glenn Hazard said: "Stealing and exploiting privileged accounts is a central element of the kill chain in cyber attacks of all kinds, regardless of attacker origin.
