Looking for a Software Audit Tool ?
Have you got the full facts on all your IT assets? With the passage of time its far too easy for an organisation to lose control of what IT assets are employed in their organisation. This creates the potential for risk in terms of theft, misplacement, under insurance but most importantly software license infringement.
The law states you need to purchase a license for each PC that a chargeable software program is installed on otherwise its software piracy, just the same as if you duplicated a software companys CD and sold it in a market!
Organisations like FAST and the BSA actively encourage, for financial reward, ex or disgruntled employees to report license abuse and this can have a devastating effect on the company concerned, restricted not only to severe financial loss but embarrassment, fines, bad publicity and as awful as it sounds, up to 10 years in prison for ultimately responsible company officers. Auditing your PCs will resolve these worries in no time and theres no better tool than Visual Audit X4!
