CA SiteMinder and CA IdentityMinder Help Manage and Secure the Identities and Access of Members, Unions, Employers and Providers
PRLog - Jun. 26, 2014 - NEW YORK and HOBOKEN, N.J. — June 26, 2014 — CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) and Simeio Solutions today announced that Central States Funds (CSF) (http://www.centralstatesfunds.org/), an Illinois-based multi-employer Taft-Hartley benefit organization (http://www.bls.gov/opub/mlr/cwc/multiemployer-pension-plans.pdf), has selected the companies to implement an identity and access management system to help improve operations and productivity, and provide improved services and a positive user experience for its more than 400,000 members, unions, employers and providers.
CA SiteMinder (http://www.ca.com/us/securecenter/ca-siteminder.aspx)® and CA IdentityMinder (http://www.ca.com/us/securecenter/ca-identityminder.aspx)™ provide the core technology for the system with implementation and service enhancements, including transitional Expert Managed Services, by Simeio Solutions.
Central States Funds is one of the largest single health and welfare and pension claims processing centers in the United States. It handles more than 12,000 claims each day for more than 400,000 participants and dependents. Managing those identities and securing their access to CSF services is critical to customer loyalty and confidence. CSF turned to CA Technologies and Simeio Solutions for a seamless, scalable identity and access management (IAM) system that provides the foundation for a trusted IT environment.
“The IAM services provided by Simeio, backed by CA Technologies IAM solutions, support both our long-term business and technology strategy to provide trusted online services and engagement,” said Patrick Moroney, CSF Chief Information Officer. “Simeio’s transitional Expert Managed Services help us achieve our desired level of trust. Identity and access governance is critical for our organization’s members, unions, employers and providers who need access to CSF resources, but also value security of personal information. Managing their identities and governing their access is critical to maintaining confidence in our services.”
In addition to security, CSF also needed to provide simple, automated engagement and a positive user experience. The IAM solution provides:
Digital/web interaction with various members
Self-service registration/password reset and account management for members
Single Sign-on across member services
Enhanced security of the web environment
“We leveraged the capabilities of Simeio Identity Intelligence Center (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vd38A6008J0)™ (IIC™), the first and only solution designed specifically to operate, monitor, and defend enterprise IAM infrastructure, to deliver maximum value during our transitional Expert Managed Services,” said Shawn Keve, partner at Simeio Solutions.
“Simeio’s expertise in IAM is vast and impressive,” said Shawn Sprague, senior director, product management, CA Technologies. “We have worked successfully together to deploy our IAM solutions, including CA SiteMinder and CA IdentityMinder, and we’re excited to see the value the partnership is bringing to Central States Funds.”
