Computer Associates' rollercoaster ride has continued with its purchase of identity management company Netegrity. The deal, worth $430 million (£233m), followed a rough month which saw the indictment of former CEO Sanjay Kumar and around 800 redundancies.
Netegrity will work to strengthen Computer Associates' eTrust portfolio and boost the company's presence in identity management and Enterprise Identity Management (EIM).
"Analysts say the EIM market is one that's consolidating fast," said Simon Perry, VP of security strategy at CA. "The strength of the players relies on who can bring ID management to the market."
