Bottom Line

CA Single Sign-On provides access management for mobile, web and SaaS applications. It is best for large enterprise environments operating in the cloud, on-premises, or both. Not as suitable for SMEs.

Product Description

CA Single Sign-On (CA SSO) provides access management for mobile, web and SaaS applications, regardless of where they're hosted or how they're accessed. It identifies who the users are and what they're attempting to do, and it enforces appropriate access policies using a standards-based framework that can be shared by IT and application developers. Key features of the product include identity federation, enhanced session assurance and flexible architecture models.

Markets and Use Cases

CA Single Sign-On is optimized for large enterprise environments and is used in all verticals. It is particularly useful in consumer identity and access management (CIAM) use cases, and the solution's enhanced session assurance functionality positions it to perform especially well in organizations with content that is highly sensitive or regulated.

Security Qualifications

CA SSO uses cryptographic functions that are consistent with the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 standard.

Intelligence

CA SSO integrates with CA's Threat Analytics technology, which is a SaaS solution that offers visibility into user behavior through machine learning analytics to give security teams actionable insights into abnormal user behavior to prevent security threats.

Delivery

On-premises software, cloud, and hybrid cloud environments.

Agents

Agent options are available, but CA Single Sign-On provides a number of methods to perform agentless access management.

Metrics

CA SSO is handling 1.5 billion transactions per month at a major European telecom company, managing 3 billion transactions per month at a major U.S. financial institution, supports over 80 million users at a single customer site, and over 30 customer support websites with more than 10 million users.

Pricing

The pricing model behind CA Single Sign-On is based on a per user basis; the price per user decreases as the number of users in the deployment increase. There are pricing options for both perpetual and subscription-based pricing.
