A failed software compliance audit can cost your organization as much as $150,000 in fines per violation.
Your corporate risk management strategy needs to include preventative measures against piracy in the workplace.
Protect your business against failed compliance audits by tracking software license usage with BrowseReporter. Detect the usage of pirated or improperly licensed software to ensure that your organization is compliant with software license allowances.
Cast Light on Shadow IT
Shadow IT – also known as Stealth IT, Client IT, or Fake IT – is any system, solution, or software that’s used by the employees of an organization without the knowledge and approval of the corporate IT department.
BrowseReporter’s software usage reports lets you track software license usage based on computers, users, and workgroups such as organizational units (OUs) in Active Directory.
It bolsters your software asset management program by showing you all of the programs that are currently being used by your organization, including those that have not been officially adopted.
With a clear picture of the software being used in your organization you will know which high-risk applications to block and what capabilities your workforce needs to be provided with.

How To Get Started With Software Asset Management
Audit Existing Software Usage
To start, you need to have a thorough understanding of all of the software currently being used by your business.
You will need to catalogue the existing licenses your company has, make note of ongoing software expenses, and track software license usage to determine whether or not the existing solutions are being sufficiently used.
Audit software procurement history for existing licenses
Track software use to determine current utilization and detect the use of undocumented software
Monitor employee web activity for the use of SaaS platforms
Categorize existing software and consolidate any redundant solutions
Make note of any upcoming renewal dates such as monthly/annual subscriptions or vendor-specific maintenance plans
Track & Control Software Use (Software Metering)
The goal of software metering is to ensure that license limits are enforced and that licenses are available for each user that needs one.
This practice can be further split into two major categories: passive software metering and active software metering.
Passive software metering: Application use is monitored to track software license usage but users are not actively denied access to the software. This provides natural user activity insights that can help determine the amount of licenses needed.
Active software metering: Application use is monitored and access can be denied based on a given set of parameters. For example, an organization with a limited amount of licenses could schedule application permissions to limit the amount of users that can access the software at a given time.
