Quest Acquires BiTKOO

BiTKOO provides solutions for fine-grained authorization and entitlement management

News Facts:

Quest Software, Inc. announced today that it has acquired BiTKOO, a privately-held company that provides solutions for fine-grained authorization and entitlement management in enterprise IT environments. The acquisition further extends the strength of Quest' One Identity Solutions in access governance by providing easier accountability and greater transparency for enterprise, cloud, and SaaS- based scenarios through externalized authorization.

With the acquisition, BiTKOO Keystone technology will be included in Quest One Identity Solutions to specifically offer:

Fine-grained authorization using the XACML standard for applications built in-house, enabling consistent management of access to diverse applications, web services and data regardless of operating system or application framework.

Fine-grained access control for consistent, dynamic authorization across SharePoint.

Exclusive row and column level security for SQL Server without the need to write custom code.

Supporting Quote:

Nick Nikols, vice president and general manager, Identity & Access Management, Quest Software

"BiTKOO is the leader for authorization and entitlement management, which is recognized as the cutting edge in the identity and access management market. Their products are a tremendous fit for Quest One as we continue striving to simplify IAM for our customers. This investment will make Quest the first large IAM vendor to offer organizations the capability to define granular access controls for users based on user attributes, the resource and the context of the access request. It's a perfect complement to our current Quest One offerings that leverage existing investments and address current concerns, while laying the groundwork to address future needs."
