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. At Bitium, we echo that confidence. While most Identity Access Management solutions focus on Microsoft integration almost exclusively, at Bitium, we chose to be “Google-first”. 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.

We've joined the Google Apps Marketplace!
Posted by Scott Kriz on Apr 16, 2015

We are always looking for ways to provide cloud-forward companies with easy-to-use, flexible and secure solutions that let employees choose which apps they use while giving IT the visibility and control they need to keep the organization safe from breaches and hacks.  Companies that have embraced Google for Work tend to think of the cloud first when looking for software solutions. It just makes sense that our product resonates with Google’s customer base.

Bitium Quarterly App Rankings Q2-2014
Posted by Scott Kriz on Jul 28, 2014

As user adoption of web based applications continues to grow in all market segments, specific growth trends vary widely among applications. At Bitium, we can see aggregate growth rates and trends. We have ourselves adopted multiple SaaS applications after noticing rapid growth amongst our users. As a company, we have decided to publish the top applications according to individual accounts managed through Bitium each quarter.

Some of the more interesting trends that we have seen among applications with high adoption rates are storage and productivity tools.

Storage, while historically a commoditized market is proving to be more complex. Box (17th), Dropbox (5th) and Google Drive (9th) are differentiating on functionality in addition to the amount of storage and maximum file size. Although Box ranked 17th, their growth rate exceeded any of the competitors.

For the first time we saw Google Apps’ growth rate was not as great as that of Office 365, keeping O365 at 7th in rank. As Microsoft improves Office 365, Google App users are either switching or using both tools. As the battle continues, it will be interesting to watch the growth trends.

Bitium Quarterly SaaS App Rankings - Q2 2014

It’s important to note that these do not necessarily represent adoption metrics for web based applications for all market segments. Rather this represents Bitium users who, on average, have higher adoption of web-based apps than the overall market and tend to be very progressive SaaS users.
