Quest Software acquires BiTKOO
Quest has purchased BiTKOO, which develops software for authorization and entitlement management in enterprise IT environments. The move is said to further strengthen Quest’s One Identity solution in access governance by providing easier accountability and greater transparency for enterprise, cloud and SaaS- based scenarios through externalized authorization.
Quest reports BiTKOO Keystone technology will be included in One Identity to 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;
- access control for consistent, dynamic authorization across SharePoint; and
- exclusive row and column level security for SQL Server without the need to write custom code.
