Bit9 representatives will show a live demo of how its customers have stopped Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) by using Bit9 Parity on laptops, desktops and servers.

Meet with Bit9 representatives to discuss Bit9’s adaptive application whitelisting (AW) solution, Bit9 Parity, which detects and protects against today’s modern security threats. In a world of failing anti-virus and blacklisting technologies, whitelisting emerges as one of the top solutions to stop APTs. By leveraging its default-deny security strategy, Bit9 Parity puts in place policies that allow trusted software to run and prevents all other software and malware before it executes on the endpoint.
