Bitium Extends Google Apps for Work Offer To Single Sign-On and Provisioning
Posted by Scott Kriz on Oct 20, 2015

We were really excited to see that Google is giving away their software suite to existing Microsoft and IBM customers. It speaks to their confidence in the product.

My co-founder and I have been Google Apps customers through the last 3 companies that we’ve worked at together. Nearly half (48%) of Bitium’s customers use Google as their primary authentication into Bitium, allowing them to sync users and groups easily and securely.
