Two-Factor AuthenticationYESYES


Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) include a culture, operating principles, and collection of practices that enable application development teams to submit code changes more frequently and reliably. CI/CD is one of the best practices to deliver code changes more frequently and reliably. Both Bitbucket and GitHub are profit by this method.

Private Repository

On both services you are allowed to have free repository but it is restricted to five collaborators on Bitbucket and three collaborators on GitHub. You need to pay if you have more than stated collaborators.

Direct Integrations

Zendesk, Azure, Cloudbees, Google Cloud, Amazon, Code Climate, and Heroku have direct integrations available with GitHub while it is available with Jira, Bamboo, Crucible, and JenkinsExternal on Bitbucket.

Project Analysis

Bitbucket makes it easy to visualize analytics with charts but as of now GitHub does not offer this feature; however, users can view the commit history of a particular file.

Code Navigation

Code navigation helps you read, navigate, and understand code. On GitHub the code-navigation feature is available but Bitbucket does not have a code-navigation feature.

Two-Factor Authentication

Defined as a form of account security, Two-Factor Authentication is used to increase the protection of accounts in the IT network. Adding a different dimension to traditional password methods, 2FA enables two different identity confirmations to verify the access request made for the privileged account. Both services drive profit by 2FA.
