CA has bought New York-based Orchestria Corporation, a leading provider of data loss prevention (DLP) technology.

The company intends to develop and sell Orchestria’s information-centric DLP product in the rapidly growing DLP market.

More ambitiously, it says it plans to transform the way organizations think about DLP, identity management and information security overall.

A CA statement said: “Organizations and auditors need to know who has access to data and what they can do with it at a role or user level.

“By using Orchestria’s DLP technology with CA identity and access management solutions, organizations will now be able to consolidate and strengthen their security postures by including information-centric policies in the process of centrally managing users and roles, and their access throughout the enterprise.”

Dave Hansen, corporate senior vice president and general manager, CA Security Management, said the acquisition would allow CA to deliver one of the broadest and most advanced information security solutions in the market today and address the demand for a new generation of identity and access management.

“We are continuing our aggressive plan to deliver to our customers a comprehensive solution for identity and access management to help meet their security, compliance and privacy needs,” he said.

Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
