Your people access and share data using a myriad of different cloud apps. The bad news is, you probably have no idea how your data is used, where it travels to and the level of associated risk. You’ve lost visibility and control. The good news is, we can help get it back.
Register now for a FREE Cloud Threat Assessment and detailed report of your cloud-application risk posture. This in-depth assessment will show you:
Cloud usage patterns. How potentially harmful activities happen in cloud applications across your organization.
Geographical usage. Which countries your data is traveling to and from (you may be surprised).
Privileged users. Do you have more administrators than you need?
Dormant users. Are you overspending on unused licenses?
Riskiest users. Who are your riskiest users and why?
You'll receive customized assessments on Office365, Box, G Suite, and Salesforce.com.
In an effort to stay ahead of the competition, companies have poured capital resources into information technology. In many cases, this has been done on a group-by-group basis, with each line of business creating its own infrastructure silo. Each silo had its own systems, servers, storage, licenses, and support teams—and each shouldered the total cost of owning and operating a standalone infrastructure.Learn more by downloading this paper.

A software audit can be either an internal process, executed by an in-house team or consultants, or it can be done externally, by the vendor. If done internally, the results are used by the organization to check what software is installed across the network, how the software is being used and how this usage compares with the entitlements owned by the organization. If you haven’t already been audited—get ready; it’s not a case of if, but when.

For many wireless broadband network operators, the term "unlicensed reliability" is seen as an oxymoron. For many, the idea of building a high-speed network in the unlicensed band isn't a good one. A great deal has been said about crowded frequencies, self-interference and costly network rips. About how microwaving popcorn can cause interference. About disgruntled and perplexed customers. And ex-customers.

At the time of a software audit, a SAM program helps you avoid increased license fees and penalties and keeps your employees engaged in your key initiatives rather than burdened by an auditor's requests for documentation.

Software piracy, whether accidental or malicious, is a problem for software vendors as these activities can directly affect the bottom line. Organizations that use software are affected as well. Along with rising software prices, they can face stiff fines and other costs for noncompliance with software licenses. This can come as a result of an audit that software vendors are more inclined to initiate in a lackluster economy. This white paper will discuss actions to take before, during and after an audit. As well as outline the best ways for the enterprise to remain compliant with software licenses.
All organizations require software systems to conduct daily operations. These strategic enterprise assets are often acquired or created in isolation of each other as an organization grows, particularly for those that provide services rather than physical products. Over time, these systems become complex, overlapping and highly dependent on one another, so more effort must be expended to discover the full effects of any system change. The ability of an entity to update, replace or improve the overall capabilities of the enterprise can become severely impaired. Moreover, support and administrative costs for these critical assets inevitably grow to be a major burden. Add to all this the need to control licensing, follow the organization’s policies and ensure security for the internal network, and it becomes clear that some manner of oversight is required for the enterprise to be successful.
