Enterprise technology provider CA Technologies said on Tuesday that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire network security software maker Xceedium for an undisclosed sum.
Xceedium’s Xsuite privileged identity management solution for hybrid IT environments helps address security and compliance needs, such as centralized shared account management, administrative session recording for audit and incident forensics, and command filtering to limit the scope of administrator activity and network access.
Xsuite can be deployed as a physical or virtual appliance or as an Amazon machine image, and helps customers comply with security and privacy mandates, such as PCI DSS, FISMA, HIPAA, and NERC CIP.
According to CA Technologies, Xsuite complements CA Privileged Identity Manager’s resource- or host-based access control approach, which focuses on controlling access to the server operating system and limits the scope for administrators.
Founded in 2000, Xceedium has offices in Jersey City, NJ, and Ottawa, Canada.
Xceedium competitors include Centrify, NetIQ, CyberArk, Okta, among others.
Terms of the agreement were not disclosed, and the transaction is expected to close within the quarter.
