News Facts

CA, Inc. (NASDAQ: CA) is seeing an increasing demand from government agencies for its Information Governance Suite related to anticipated inquiries and reform measures expected after the US presidential elections in November 2008. The platforms of both major presidential candidates advocate significant reform in the legislative and executive branches of government, and agencies may need to prepare for requirements to manage, discover and retain electronic and physical records, emails and other information assets. The CA Information Governance Suite, comprised of CA Records Manager and CA Message Manager, is designed to deliver comprehensive, certified records management, archiving and eDiscovery capabilities for risk reduction, litigation preparedness and proactive information governance. Using CA solutions, organizations in the public and private sectors can better manage, control and discover information over the information's life cycle while facilitating access, mitigating risk and preserving business value. This proactive management and control helps these organizations to respond more effectively to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.
