Configure Google Apps

By setting up Google Apps as the primary authentication service for Bitium, you can extend your primary identity to all your cloud apps. Employees will log into Bitium using their corporate Google Apps username and password. If Directory Sync is enabled, you can sync users and groups with Bitium as well.

Active Directory Integration is available on all Bitium plans, but the admin who sets it up must be a Google Apps admin.
