"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."
