In addition to QTrust Server, QGroup has integrated PitBull into their security product line, including QTrust 2go for 2- or 3-factor-authentication for a secure access to data and applications, QTrust Admin Proxy for secure and sabotage free administration processes, and QTrust Release Gateway that enables the release of sensitive or classified data with the 4-Eyes-Principle.
