CA Technologies is extending its content-aware identity and access management strategy to deliver a new set of security solutions for Microsoft's SharePoint collaboration software.

Specifically, CA Technologies updating its CA SiteMinder and CA DataMinder products with the content-aware solutions to further protect data stored and accessed in SharePoint.

Here's a glance at some of the features:

  • Authentication: Single sign-on, authorization and auditing via CA SiteMinder
  • Management: Automatic data discovery, classification and content-aware access control
  • Complete coverage: Information lifecycle control for SharePoint data from creation, storage, access, distribution and disposal

The goals of these new features are to improve information security and reduce related risks while meeting compliance requirements at the same time as the amount of data on SharePoint is expected to greatly increase.

The idea behind CA Technologies' content-aware strategy is to extend identity and access management functionality to enable IT departments with more control over how they handle information as well as how they protect it from inappropriate use or disclosure.

CA Technologies' new security precautions for Microsoft SharePoint should be available in March.

CA SiteMinder is licensed on a per user basis. For an enterprise customer with 5,000 users, the price per user is $12.50. For the SharePoint solution, customers add the SharePoint agent license and the DataMinder Classification license on a per SharePoint instance basis for $20,000 each. Prices may vary based on volume.
