CA Technologies Secures Cyber Essentials Certification to Protect Global Data

Government-backed Scheme Protects Data Against Most Common Types of Cyber Attack

DATCHET, UK – CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA) today announces that it has secured a UK Cyber Essentials certification to protect customer data at a global level.

Cyber Essentials is a UK Government-backed scheme designed to protect an organisation and its data against a wide range of common cyber attacks. CA Technologies made a strategic decision to secure the certification for protection of its global customer data, rather than just its UK-based customer data.

“The UK Cyber Essentials provides a strong foundation for consistent, effective measures to protect our customer data against a wide range of cyber threats, and it helps us communicate clearly with our customers about the types of security measures we have in place,” said Duncan Bradford, CTO, North for CA Technologies. “We felt it was important to roll out this certification on a global basis because the types of threats that Cyber Essentials is designed to protect against do not recognize national borders.”

The UK’s Minister for Digital and the Creative Industries, Margot James, said: “It is important companies take advantage of Government’s Cyber Essential programme to help protect themselves against the most common cyber threats. I welcome CA Technologies’ commitment to cyber security and congratulate them on achieving the Cyber Essentials certification.”

Various laws around the world, like the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), emphasize the need for investments in security to protect data. Cyber Essentials gives CA’s customers additional confidence about the company’s efforts to protect customer data and its compliance with these laws.

Many of the CA proprietary solutions used to protect internal networks and systems are ideally suited to help both CA and its customers align with many of the Cyber Essentials controls. These include CA Privileged Access Management, CA Advanced Authentication, CA Single Sign On, CA Identity Management, CA Identity Governance, and CA IT Client Automation.

CA Technologies worked with 2-Sec, a leading London-based integrated cyber security consultancy, to manage the certification process.
