HERNDON, Va. (Oct. 13, 2009) - The Transglobal Secure Collaboration Program (TSCP) today announced that CA, Inc., the world's leading independent IT management software company, is its newest member. The CA Security Management business, which provides integrated identity and access management, security information management, and data loss prevention solutions, will be collaborating with TSCP to help partners accelerate adoption of standards designed to build a globally secure critical infrastructure.

CA joins TSCP's expanding lineup of organizations, governments and technology providers committed to driving common standards for secure collaboration across the global aerospace and defense (A&D) industry. As the newest TSCP Gold member, CA will actively participate in reference implementations of TSCP's secure collaboration specifications and speed time to market for commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions that are aligned with industry requirements.

"Several of our customers and partners are represented in this program and we consider it a privilege to be working with them to fulfill the TSCP mission," said Dave Hansen, corporate senior vice president and general manager for CA Security Management. "Our global A&D and government agency customers are involved in global mission-critical projects, and we understand the challenges for secure collaboration at that level. We look forward to helping secure global business transactions and the exchange of data with innovative products that support TSCP-established standards."

CA will participate by providing technology expertise for world-class identity and access management, including Web access management, identity federation, single sign-on, user provisioning and more. The company expects to benefit from participation in TSCP's Enterprise Architecture Group by gaining insight that can drive product evolution.

"As we expand our requirements to protect the industry and its customers from the advanced persistent threat of cyber-attacks, CA will play an important role," said Keith Ward, TSCP chairman. "It's a partnership that delivers immense potential for speeding the time-to-market for solutions that meet the most compelling needs in our business."
