Large Italian Banking Group Selects CA Technologies as Technology Partner for Enterprise Security Management
ISLANDIA, N.Y. & MILAN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- CA Technologies (NAS: CA) today announced that BNL, one of Italy's largest banking groups and a member of the European BNP Paribas Group, relies on CA Technologies Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions to manage enterprise IT security across its infrastructure.
Role-based IAM, along with monitoring and tracking of security events related to the access to and the use of information, are an integral part of BNL's comprehensive security management approach. Automating the bank's security processes is critical for cost-savings and productivity.
"With nearly 2.5 million retail accounts, 150,000 business accounts and 43,000 enterprise and government accounts, protecting internal and external customer data, and controlling and monitoring access to our IT systems and information are our top priorities," explained Gilberto Pertile, BNL's Chief Information Systems Security Officer. "CA Technologies IAM solutions provide us with the level of assurance we need to securely manage our customers' data, while reducing risk, improving operational efficiencies and maintaining regulatory compliance."
