Maximize your Investment in CA Access Control with the New PUPM and UNIX A

Discussion created by Chris_Wraight_CA on Nov 12, 2009
Welcome to the CA Access Control forum!   In October, CA announced and shipped CA Access Control r12.5 Premium Edition   This release builds on the host access control market-leading CA Access Control by adding some key new features:    Privileged User Password Management (PUPM)
designed to provide secure access to privileged accounts. It helps
maintain the accountability of privileged users’ access by issuing
passwords, on a temporary, one-time use basis, or as necessary, and by
securely auditing their actions. PUPM also allows applications to
programmatically access system passwords and in doing so remove hard
coded passwords from scripts.   UNIX ® Authentication Broker (UNAB)
lets you manage UNIX users in Microsoft Active Directory (AD), which
allows the consolidation of authentication and account information into
the enterprise AD as opposed to having UNIX credentials scattered on
various systems. Unified Console CA Access Control is
the only solution that provides a single interface that consolidates
the various aspects of privileged user management - host access
control, privileged user management, and privileged access auditing and
reporting across physical and virtual systems, devices, and
applications.  In order to provide our customers with additional insight into these features, CA will be hosting technical webinars that will provide additional information.   The webinar schedule is:     Tuesday, 17 November 2009 9:00 to 10:00 A.M. E.S.T. (United States)  Wednesday, 18 November 2009 4:00 to 5:00 P.M. E.S.T. (United States)  Wednesday, 18 November 2009 4:00 to 5:00 P.M. J.S.T. (Japan)     The webinars will feature Nimrod Vax, Director of Product Management.   Any CA customer is welcome to attend, the registration page is here.
