As cyber security escalates, so does your software management responsibility. Unpatched holes in your software present a perfect opening for costly and disruptive security breaches.But patching your software properly means you need to know where your software is deployed, in which versions, how it is being used and by whom – and whether or not patches have already been provisioned.Your software licenses also represent a significant expense. If they are not successfully managed, you can incur unnecessary costs for unused software – and risk penalties for a failed audit.

- Decreased software license costs by reducing the amount of unused or redundant software.
