Bit9's Parity Creates an acceptable application whitelist but does not provide the ability to add administrative permissions for legacy applications (www.bit9.com)

DesktopStandard's PMAS Is heavily tied to Microsoft's Group Policy, so deploying policies is less flexible than it is with competing products, but it does provide more granular controls to target and elevate specific permissions (www.desktopstandard.com)

FullArmor's IntelliPolicy Controls application rights, dictates desktop configuration and locks down USB devices (www.fullarmor.com)
