CA to buy Eurekify

IT management software maker plans to acquire identity and role management company Eurekify, marking its second security-related acquisition within two months.

CA announced Thursday plans to acquire Israel-based Eurekify, in a move to expand its identity and access management software portfolio.

IT management software company aims to use Eurekify's analytics engine to reduce the time and effort it takes for customers to shift through employee's duties and responsibilities and to monitor their access management settings.

The combined CA Identity Manager and Eurekify Enterprise Role Manager will aim to help customers clean up existing identity data and build a model that "serves as the foundation to automate the user provisioning process and enhances identity lifecycle management," according to Islandia, N.Y.- based CA.

The acquisition is expected to close by month's end. Terms were not disclosed. Last month, CA made another security-related acquisition with its purchase of IDFocus .
