CA Technologies was founded in 1976 as Computer Associates International, Inc. , renamed CA, Inc. in 2004 . Since 2010 the external appearance has been as CA Technologies . As one of the largest software companies in the world, it sells management software for networks, storage, security as well as project and portfolio management. CA, Inc. has been a subsidiary of Broadcom Inc. since November 2018 .
Computer Associates International was founded in 1976 by Charles Wang and Russell Artzt in New York City with three employees. The company was renamed CA, Inc. in 2004 and was run as CA Technologies from 2010 . It was traded on NASDAQ under the symbol CA.
CA Technologies is one of the first to support the FIDO alliance , which has been developing the Universal Second Factor (U2F) industry standard for generally applicable two-factor authentication since 2013 .
In May 2014, the company moved its headquarters from Islandia to New York City.

The largest single shareholder until 2018 was the Swiss Careal Holding .
In 2018, Broadcom Inc. acquired CA Technologies for $ 18.9 billion and the acquisition closed on November 5, 2018. At the same time, trading in the shares on NASDAQ was discontinued and CA Technologies was run as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Broadcom. The responsible antitrust authorities approved the takeover because there were no technical points of contact between CA Technologies and Broadcom. Immediately after the acquisition, the Veracode business unit was sold for around $ 950 million. At the same time, a drastic downsizing began.
