Software License Compliance: Are you covered?
You buy personal insurance for lots of valid reasons- accidents, theft, acts of God. The fact is, you’ve probably got yourself pretty well covered. Often the same protection doesn’t exist when it comes to your organization and its compliance with software license agreements. Many organizations are susceptible to “software creep” that happens when programs are propagated without adequate controls. Others may be over insured, paying for licenses they don’t actually use.
Both of these scenarios put you at risk for expensive fines or overpayments. The bottom line is you need to know three basic things when it comes to your software licenses:
- What software do I have installed?
- Is it being used, by whom, and how often?
- Am I in compliance with my licensing agreements?
Sounds simple, but each can present a complex set of challenges for obtaining this information and then acting accordingly. Dell KACE Appliances can help answer these three basic questions, and ensure you’re not at risk, or wasting valuable resources. Learn more here or contact us to find out more.
