View i ntus License Manager

Software license compliance and the threat of legal proceedings due to non-compliance is a major issue facing organizations today. Nearly all organizations use information technology and some form of software for their daily operations and communications. Knowing what software is deployed and what software is licensed are the keys to preventing license violations and the possible legal headaches that result when non-compliance with those licenses is reported to the software vendor. New legislation in many countries, along with the increasing demand on vendors and service provides to meet and be certified by new information technology auditing standards is assisting software vendors in their efforts to enforce compliance. In addition, an End User License Agreement (EULA) is legal binding agreement and the legal system in many countries now recognizes the EULA as a contract between the vendor and the end user. Consequently, organizations are now closely monitoring their software, and the licenses governing the deployment and usage of that software. Executives and management at all levels are finding that providing evidence of license compliance on regular basis is becoming more challenging than initially thought and the increasing number of ‘Abc Inc. is being sued by Xyz Ltd. for license violations’ headlines in the press and on the evening news is only making the situation more difficult.

The ViewIntus License Manager allows organizations to closely monitor their software inventory and identify where that software is deployed. This is the critical component needed to ensure compliance with software licenses, provide verification that organizational change control processes are working, and meet the audit requirements of new and existing information technology auditing standards.

The ViewIntus License Manager is a powerful software auditing tool that, when used with the ViewIntus Package Manager, can provide detailed software deployment inventory for all software deployed on every system, server, or workstation in the organization that is monitored by ViewIntus.

The ViewIntus License Manager is a natural extension of the ViewIntus Package Manager which is used to manage the deployment of software packages and bundles. Together they allow information technology managers to perform license compliance audits as often as they wish.
