TSANet is a non-profit organization that facilitates global collaboration between vendor support teams to ensure timely resolution of any mutual client problems.

TSANet also advocates the integration of multi-vendor applications to deliver the best solutions to customers. By joining this organization, Bit9 has taken another step to ensure its customers receive the highest level of support and performance.

Bit9 offers enterprise application whitelisting solutions, allowing IT professionals to manage applications and devices that can run on the desktops across a network. The Bit9 Parity(TM) solution lets IT administrators identify, classify and control applications running on a network. The company also offers the Bit9 Global Software Registry(TM), a proprietary repository of more than six billion applications that is a comprehensive source of applications worldwide. The Bit9 GSR can be used to look up unknown applications found in a corporate network, speeding the whitelisting process.

TSANet is a worldwide alliance of IT hardware and software vendors. The organization was founded to provide a solutions-oriented communication link between the respective support organizations, and will act as a forum for Bit9 to build relationships with other members and develop tailored, comprehensive solutions for its customers.

"As the industry standard for mixed-vendor solutions and support, TSANet provides an important link between Bit9 and other leading technology organizations," said Tom Murphy, Chief Marketing Officer, Bit9. "At Bit9 we are committed to customer service and creating solutions that meet the specific needs of each customer."
