Google announced today the purchase of Bitium, a company devoted to cloud security and access management solutions including: federation and single sign on, credential management, app management, directory integration, secure access, user provisioning and deprovisioning and report&compliance.

Karthik Lakshminarayanan (Director, Product Management, G Suite and Cloud Identity at Google) explains: “The move from on-premise enterprise applications to the cloud has unlocked new levels of productivity and collaboration for businesses and their partners, employees and customers. With the increase in cloud adoption, there are new considerations about how to manage cloud applications within an organization and to ensure that the right levels of security and user data access policies are in place.

With the acquisition of Bitium, Google Cloud will gain capabilities to help us deliver on our Cloud Identity vision.”
