Software licensing comprises the permissions, rights and restrictions imposed on software (whether a component or a free-standing program). Use of software without a license could constitute infringement of the owner's intellectual property rights, and allow the owner to sue the infringer.

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.
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.

Delivering applications that meet the needs of the business can be a challenge in a complex business climate that is constantly changing. Diverse, multiple heterogeneous environments are the norm, all of which must be maintained and deployed. Multiple tools and technologies connect, support and create work.
This paper will explore best practices for identifying and eliminating seven types of waste: Waiting, handoffs and task switching, motion, extra processes, extra features, partially completed work and defects.
This white paper describes software as the invisible thread that links product parts into an intelligent whole. It examines software delivery for smart products and strategies for evolving software development into a business process.
As a retail security professional, you are challenged with maintaining a constant state of PCI compliance and keeping your infrastructure safe using best-of-breed security solutions that help, rather than hinder, your quest to validate your systems. Endpoint protection that is based on detecting known malware is demonstrably ineffective —and has the potential to create numerous inefficiencies across your organization. In addition, constant updating of security patches and antivirus software libraries can slow response times and leave endpoints vulnerable to APT attacks.
Besides potential breaches of your customers’ personal information, as well as damage to your brand, a lack of endpoint control can also put you at risk for steep PCI noncompliance and regulatory penalties—fines that can range anywhere from $10,000 to $100,000 per month.
Recent high-profile data breaches at brand name retailers, highlight the need to protect your company’s reputation and your customer’s personal information.
The consequences of suffering a data breach are numerous, and none of them are positive — consumer mistrust, a drop in traffic and a decrease in sales, to name just a few.
