A large database of vetted apps and an easy-to-use policy editor are the powers behind the application whitelisting throne in Bit9's Parity. Parity groups computers together for easier management and enforcement of security policies and provides flexible reporting.

Notice in the upper right screen the "warnings" section. During initial use of the product, this is where I spent most of my time, clicking on the "malicious" and "potential risk" counters to immediately evaluate files and take countermeasures where indicated. IT managers who are installing Bit9's Parity on an existing fleet of systems and servers will spend a lot of time here getting a handle on the installed software in the environment.
