The Bitium solution allows Google Apps administrators the ability to manage all their business’ apps users and groups from a single location, leveraging the Google Apps user directory. Once installed, users and groups will automatically sync from Google to Bitium, eliminating the need to manage two separate directories to enable and revoke users and access to various business applications. Bitium also empowers administrators with a powerful new way to securely manage every SaaS app used across the organization. They can grant or revoke an employee’s access simply by clicking a checkbox on their administrative dashboard. Group managers can also serve as administrators within Bitium and grant entire teams or a whole department access to a suite of software tools.
Bitium’s service includes a powerful suite of analytics that monitor their customers’ software usage making it easy for administrators to discover popular new software and quickly make it available across the entire organization. Through Bitium, IT administrators have access to insights, reports, audit logs and details on app spend. This helps to manage IT costs by not paying for apps that are seldom used and to consolidate accounts and cut costs in instances where various departments have independently signed up for the same app.
Bitium solution’s ease of use is highlighted at Prialto, a provider of turnkey administrative services. Their staff and clients rely heavily on more than 200 powerful third-party web-based applications, like Salesforce, Google Docs, and Dropbox. As a result, finding a sensible password sharing strategy became a major focus for Prialto and their customers. Using Bitium, Prialto has eliminated these complicated and unsafe practices. Central administrators manage the Bitium system and authorize only the appropriate productivity assistants to have access to a particular client’s Salesforce, email or other shared accounts. This enables Prialto’s staff to keep clients’ schedules, CRM systems and email accounts organized on their behalf without ever seeing the clients’ passwords.
For Kriz, who continually raises the bar on achievements and gravitates onward to the next goal, it is imperative to constantly track and keep abreast of the trends in primary identity and multifactor authentication.
Bitium’s vision is focused on not locking down access, but instead they want their corporate customers to embrace as many useful apps from multiple software vendors. Bitium’s research and development efforts are focused on providing developers with a way to more deeply integrate their cloud applications with one another in ways not possible today.
