Manage your software, wherever and however you install or access it

The way that you access and run software is changing. From desktops and servers to virtual machines, cloud instances and Software-as-a-Service offerings, managing software in this changing environment is challenging and confusing. We help you manage that complexity. It’s what we do!

Desktops and Servers

You’ve still got most of your software on desktops and in your own datacenters. We track and manage all of that software.

  • Minimize risk of software audits by finding what you’ve installed, and automatically comparing it to what you’ve bought to get an Effective License Position
  • Reduce costs by identifying software that you’re not using and assign those licenses to others or cut maintenance or subscriptions
  • Pull from third party inventory tools or our own agents to create a single, consolidated view of your on premises software

Moving to the Cloud

With newer virtual and Cloud based options, it gets even harder to manage your software. Installing software in a public, private or hybrid Cloud instance may increase your license consumption and your costs. Easy creation of new instances may significantly increase your overall software usage. And software publishers are constantly coming up with new rules for running their software in the cloud.

  • Pull usage data from Office 365 and Salesforce.com to help you understand whether you’re getting the most effective use out of your subscription license. And review options to more efficiently match the way your users use the product with the license level they’re assigned.
  • Review options to more efficiently match the assigned user license levels with the way they use the product
  • Track your usage and compliance when you run your own software in a cloud environment. How? By collecting the inventory data and then processing the new cloud consumption rules to determine your license position

Bringing it together

You’re going to have software running on a mix of desktops, datacenters and different cloud options for a long time. We create a single consolidated view of your software position across your on-premises and cloud environment.

Tear down the wall between you and your vendors

We live in a cloud, SaaS, and virtual world powered by software, a $350 Billion industry that runs every company on the planet. But the software supply chain – the network of vendors, customers, end users and intermediaries – is dysfunctional, inefficient and operates under a veil of distrust.

How much time and money do you spend managing what software you’re using and what you’ve bought? Security exploits and open source liabilities just add to the needless friction, waste, and risk inherent in the software that powers your livelihood.

In industries with mature supply chains, vendors provide data and usage management so users can focus on why they bought that product/service in the first place, not the upkeep. We are working closely with many forward thinking partners to make this a reality for software.

'Vendor Managed' SAM is a real solution with ‘FlexAware’ vendors

  • Application recognition that always finds the mark
    Never wonder if your software inventory is finding too few or too many installs when the vendor defines the recognition rules for their own software.
  • Unquestionably accurate Use Rights modeling
    Keep up-to-date on constantly evolving license models without breaking a sweat – and know that your results are 100% consistent with vendor rules.
  • Ongoing Baseline
    When understanding your license position is as easy as paying your electric bill, distractions fade away and the focus returns to creating real value from IT investments.
Be Unified

Unify Asset Management and Security Operations

  • Build a common foundation for SAM, Security and the broader IT ecosystem with normalized software inventory.
  • Drive your SAM and Software Vulnerability Management processes to focus on the apps that matter to you.

Growing Risks to Your Business

Asset management and security operations teams all share important responsibilities to govern and secure your IT assets, but they often work from different tools and sources of asset data. With the threat of vendor audits and hackers on the rise, the risks to your business continue to grow and require a collaborative effort by all parties involved.

Working Together

Organizations that leverage software asset inventory combined with contract, licensing, and software vulnerability data can rapidly address the most critical software governance and cybersecurity threats to stay ahead of the game.

Effectively reduce the attack surface for cybercriminals, keeping the business protected from threats like ransomware, while optimizing spending, and keeping the organization safe from vendor audits.

Benefits of a Unified SAM and Security Solution

  • Use a single software asset list shared across functional areas
  • Improve decision-making – identify what you have and weigh the business risks
  • Have greater transparency of your organization’s compliance and security risk status
  • Share knowledge with all teams involved in the asset lifecycle
