CA Technologies positioned in the Leaders quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for User Authentication
CA Technologies announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of the report, Magic Quadrant for User Authentication.
According to the report by Gartner Research Vice President Ant Allan, “We estimate the overall growth in the market by customers to be approximately 30 percent year-over-year. Because of the shift toward lower-cost authentication solutions, we estimate the overall growth by revenue to be approximately only 20 percent.” He writes that, “By 2017, more than 50 percent of enterprises will choose cloud-based services as the delivery option for new or refreshed user authentication implementations, up from less than 10 percent today.”
“Considering Gartner’s user authentication market growth estimate, and the forecast that half of the implementations will be cloud services, we are confident we’re in a solid position for success in this sector. With more than 14,000 organizations leveraging our authentication solutions and more than 85 million identities protected by our cloud-based authentication services we should be on the short-list for anyone considering a cloud authentication solution,” said Franz Erasmus, Practise manager - Security, CA MENA. “Our team has worked hard to deliver the solutions customers need to address their identity and access management challenges, and we are proud to have been positioned in four Leaders quadrants over the past year.”
