CA wireless site app draws interest

Computer Associates International has introduced several products at its CA World show, but it was the company's Wireless Site Management - aimed at operating and securing enterprise Wireless Lans - that has attracted the most attention from users.

A beta version of WSM is available now, but general availability and pricing have not yet been determined.

WSM is promoted by CA as nearly unique in the market, except for Cisco Systems' Leap product, according to CA officials. Features include automatic Wlan discovery and prevention of rogue users and devices, automatic encryption key management, location and time-based access control, connection load balancing to find optimal throughput per user and built-in reporting.

CA also announced Web Services Distributed Management 3.1, a software product designed to improve control of individual web services.

The company also laid out its Information Life Cycle Management strategy for helping customers improve financial performance within IT operations by using CA's BrightStor store management software to align management of information and storage assets with business goals.

The first ILM product announced was BrightStor Document Manager, which incorporates the open-source Plone document management engine.

Yesterday CA announced its CA Trusted Open Source License process, a take-off on the common public licence that will be available from Using this new licence, CA will release its Ingres Enterprise Relational Database into the open-source community.
