Quest Software has expanded its Quest One Identity Solutions portfolio to deliver the market's most robust solution for externalising, unifying, securing, and simplifying access control, one of the most troublesome components of IAM strategy.
Quest Software is currently re-branding the BiTKOO solutions and will soon be releasing Quest One Authorisation Policy Server (the former BiTKOO Keystone solution) and Quest One Authorisation Policy Server for SharePoint (the former BiTKOO Keystone for SharePoint solution).
The integration of the Quest One Identity Solutions portfolio with the Keystone technology of BiTKOO, a leading externalised authorisation management specialist acquired by Quest Software in December 2011, extends Quest One's power, letting businesses save time, reduce costs and increase security.
The Quest One Identity Solutions portfolio further improves access control with:
* seamless security integration: BiTKOO technology eliminates a 'siloed' and disjointed security strategy through a security dial tone approach. This 'dial tone' acts as a common security paradigm, which is easily and consistently implemented and eliminates ad-hoc, inconsistent and custom security coding on individual applications
* compliance confidence: BiTKOO technology complements Quest One's powerful capabilities for gathering information and increasing visibility into who has access to what, when and how they got it, and how it was approved
* fast, cost effective implementation: the addition of BiTKOO technology rounds out the Quest One portfolio by providing additional capabilities that support Quest One's modular and integrated approach, which can be implemented precisely to the customer's needs.
Nick Nikols, vice president and general manager, Identity and Access Management, Quest Software, said, 'Government regulations and increased security concerns are critical factors affecting businesses today. Organisations need the confidence that their enterprises are secure and compliant without sacrificing business agility.
'Quest Software's core objective with Quest One is to reduce complexity, cost and risk in the enterprise by providing a simplified and business-focused approach to identity and access management. The addition of the BiTKOO technology into the Quest One Identity Solutions portfolio is a significant advancement in offering customers and partners a more complete, best-in-class identity management solution.
