We are looking forward to a long and successful journey with CA Technologies.”

Post the key note address by Mr Subodh Anchan, Mr Sumeet Mathur, Vice President, Cybersecurity, CA Technologies began the session explaining how Trust impacts business outcome more than ever and how Digital identity is becoming the foundation of Trust.

A company may not be selling a technology related product, but its brand is represented, communicated, perceived and judged through the lens of technology. And hence everyone is rushing to embrace the Application Economy and every business is becoming a software business.” said Mr Mathur.

The changes in the application economy creates risk with 70% of all breaches being caused by lost, stolen or weak credentials, 90% of breaches exploit defects in applications and 60% of malware uses privileged escalation. There was a 44% increase in data breaches in 2017 as compared to 2016.

CA Technologies uses User Behaviour Analytics to enable the enterprises to continuously assess risk and quickly detect malicious activity. User Behaviour Analytics takes, as input, a stream of data about how a given identity or group of identities interacts with services or applications and then outputs a level of risk associated with each enterprise identity in the given transaction in real time“, he further added.
