XOsoft produces technology that allows uninterrupted access to enterprise systems running applications including Windows Server, SQL Server and Oracle.
The XOsoft technology allows for prioritisation of applications and data to provide the appropriate level of protection.
"Although it will not be found on a balance sheet, information is a valuable business asset that should be managed and protected appropriately," said Brian Babineau, an analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group.
"To fulfil their business, IT and compliance requirements, companies must be able to ensure that critical business information is readily accessible and quickly recoverable if necessary."
CA plans to integrate the technology into its BrightStor ARCserve Backup application, and to use it as the foundation for a next-generation information protection platform.
XOsoft was founded in 1999. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed.
