Software License Compliance
Rectify Software License Shortfalls—Before You Get Audited
Cherwell® Asset Management is an IT asset management solution that helps you prepare for vendor audits and monitor software license compliance in a proactive, automated way—so you minimize software audit risk and take control of your license position. Unlike other software license management tools, Cherwell Asset Management uses a proprietary software catalog to recognize the countless executables discovered on your network. That's why Cherwell Asset Management's license compliance reports are more complete and reliable than technology that relies on other methods such as file headers or registry analysis.
Minimize License Compliance Risk, Enjoy Peace of Mind
Evaluate Your License Position
Easily reconcile software inventory with license information so you can evaluate your compliance status in both physical and virtual environments. Apply Microsoft product use rights to compliance calculations for Microsoft Office applications and Windows desktop and server operating systems.
Budget for License True-Ups
Calculate financial liabilities with respect to your organization's software license position, so you can accurately assess your financial exposure, budget for true-up costs, and—most importantly—take corrective actions necessary to remain in good standing with your software vendors.
Enforce Peak Usage Limits for Concurrently Licensed Applications
Monitor peak usage and enforce compliance for concurrently licensed software. Allocate licenses by individual machine or group, automatically terminate applications based on specified idle time, and notify wait-list members when licenses become available.
