I like it better than Bit9, especially in a .edu environment

My 2 cents,

Does anyone have experience with the security software/platform Bit9? It has
a different type of approach to security – to permit only known trusted
software to run on your systems as opposed to attempting to block software
that matches to known “bad” signatures or is otherwise identified as “bad”.
I would be glad to hear any experience you have with Bit9, especially with
the software installed on servers. Also, would be glad for any info/feedback
on any other similar products too. Thanks for any feedback you can provide.
