Whitelisting knowledgebase to be used in future security products.

A strategic partnership has been announced between Kaspersky Labs and application control specialist Bit9.

The deal will allow Kaspersky, best known for the excellent response times and detection rates in its anti-malware products, to integrate data from Bit9's sizeable database of file information, covering over 4 billion items of commercial and open-source software and including trust information as well as data on file sources and usage.

The whitelisting data will be used in unspecified 'future products', to provide 'more granular threat protection', according to Kaspersky Labs CEO Eugene Kaspersky. A press release on the deal is here.
