Security for the Borderless Workplace

CA's Robert Primm on Mobile Security for Employees, Customers
Security for the Borderless Workplace

At CA Technologies, mobile security is not just a solution for customers; it's a practice that IT security leaders have embraced internally. CA's Robert Primm discusses how to secure a borderless workplace.

"The impact of mobility on the enterprise in recent years has really transformed how we look at mobility," says Primm, who is Director of IT Security at CA Technologies.

Part of this new outlook is ensuring that employees have easy, remote access to the critical information they need, wherever and whenever they need it. And the rest is about ensuring the necessary security and ease-of-use measures to help prevent a devastating breach.

"We've actually developed policies, procedures and a wide variety of technology to enforce security and its importance," Primm says. "But also mobility and the user experience have really challenged how we traditionally look at IT security."

In an interview about CA's unique approach, Primm discusses:

  • Mobile adoption at CA;
  • How he addressed mobile security challenges internally;
  • Business benefits derived from CA's OneAccess mobile app.

Primm is a senior IT Security professional with over 10 years' experience in IT auditing and compliance, SAP security and management of identity and access management solutions. He has led a number of projects related to both CA GovernanceMinder, CA SiteMinder and CA IdentityMinder. He currently leads the Identity and Access Management team at CA. He is ITIL certified and maintains a CISA.
