CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Bit9, Inc. today introduced Version 4.0 of its award-winning Parity™ application and device control solution. As part of the new functionality, customers will now benefit from enhanced automatic whitelisting of trusted software and devices.

Bit9 Parity provides the easiest and most effective way for IT to achieve business-friendly Windows security by controlling which applications and devices can and cannot operate. In doing so, Bit9 Parity prevents malicious software and data leakage while ensuring the highest levels of compliance, security, and manageability.

“IT organizations need the appropriate balance to help manage and control security on desktops and servers,” said Mark Bowker, analyst at noted research firm Enterprise Strategy Group. “Blacklists keep growing infinitely to keep pace with massive amounts of malware and crimeware and they are vulnerable against zero-day attacks. Whitelisting technology from companies such as Bit9 has the potential of easing the operational burden of managing desktops while protecting them at the same time.”
