How can IT achieve the flexibility and agility it needs to offer multiple types of applications in multiple locations? Just as enterprises take advantage of applications hosted in multiple locations (i.e., public clouds, private clouds, or SaaS applications), they take advantage of different networks for different reasons (i.e. performance, backup, remote access). These could be MPLS links, ATM links, traditional Internet connections, or VPN lines. Enterprises, in effect, are already building hybrid networks, and those combined with the elements of hybrid clouds create the hybrid enterprise.
The fundamentals of security and management of software have not changed. But the new computing environment – mobile devices, cloud computing and virtualization – requires new approaches to familiar challenges. What’s more, software publishers are bringing a new energy to their own vigilance. A capricious economy has many of them stepping up the number of customer audits. As organizations deal with these software licensing challenges, they also face increasingly sophisticated security threats that continuously morph, just a step ahead of remedies to stop them. Organizations need a comprehensive approach to security and software asset management. This white paper will examine the interconnection between SAM and security, offering practical advice on how enterprises can protect themselves and where to go for support.
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.
Software asset management (SAM) solutions promise to fix all that. They present a set of tools, practices and processes that take the uncertainty out of software licensing and enable organizations to fully optimize software inventories.
