Application Whitelisting (Carbon Black Protection, formerly Bit9)

Carbon Black Protection (Cb Protection), formerly Bit9, is an application control product that allows departments to monitor and control application execution on systems. Cb Protection is licensed for Stanford managed servers and the specialized workstations, called Privileged Access Workstations (PAWs), used to manage those servers.


Cb Protection uses a trust-based policy engine agent to track and control the execution of applications. Only known and trusted applications are allowed to run on the system, a protection technique called whitelisting.

Supported operating systems include: 

  • Windows Server 2008 and above
  • Mac OS X 10.7.4 and above

Get started

Get started by deploying Cb Protection to your systems with BigFix, and requesting a Carbon Black Protection account

Application control must be deployed and implemented carefully to avoid server and application outages. To get training on Cb Protection, submit a Help ticket.
