Reduce audit fines and software costs. Discovers licensed and unlicensed software with drill-down granularity to reduce annual software expenditures and vendor-imposed software compliance penalties. Uses a consolidated console, single server, and single intelligent agent to compare discovered software against the number of available licenses. This visibility into software license consumption helps you plan software budgets based on inventory and usage trends. It also helps you plan for software upgrades and migrations by enabling administrators to determine which endpoints meet prerequisites.
Deliver comprehensive visibility across the endpoint landscape. Provides a comprehensive, real-time view of all assets to ensure software audit readiness across hundreds of thousands of endpoints. Includes information on over 9,100 software publishers, 38,000 software products and 105,000 application signatures and can easily accommodate homegrown and proprietary applications. Plus, it supports six different forms of discovery including a Software Identification Catalog (ISO 19770 enabled), customized template signatures, an installation registry, vendor-specific discover solutions, ISO SWID tags and hardware discovery.
Improve security posture. Enables you to set security compliance policies for software and system configurations – helping IT and Security organizations collaborate to secure the enterprise by monitoring for unauthorized software while removing software which poses a security threat. Provides reports on the health and compliance of software assets in minutes, regardless of the size of the environment. It has also been verified as equivalent to the IBM License Metric Tool (ILMT) to manage your IBM software licensing requirements and help maintain an audit ready posture.
Increase efficiency by streamlining asset inventory processes. Automates inventory operations using a single solution – enabling IT organizations to reduce the number of hours and resources spent on inventory activities. Provides the ability to handle hundreds of thousands of endpoints using a single BigFix server and intelligent agent, which reduces hardware and staffing costs compared to traditional asset management methods.
