& License Audit
Inventory & Control All Software Assets
Knowing which software is installed on your network and how many times a specific piece of software is deployed can be a big challenge for any business. Actively identifying newly installed software across your network adds an additional layer of complexity, an IT audit is almost impossible without an automated solution.
Scan Your Network for Installed Software
Scan your network with Lansweeper to automatically get a complete software inventory from all Windows, Linux and Mac assets. Report on software installations within your network by either using some of the built-in reports or by creating your own custom report.
Detect Newly Installed Software
To reduce the risks of breaches and downtime, IT techs need to be able to detect when new software is installed and quickly determine all the details. Lansweeper delivers complete visibility into what is happening across your network, including newly installed software. Create an email alert and you will immediately receive a detailed notification whenever new software is installed.
Mark Software as (Un)Authorized
Software on Windows computers can be marked as authorized (approved), unauthorized (denied) or unrated (neutral). By default, any new software detected in your network is marked as neutral. When you’ve configured software authorization, you can use one of the built-in Lansweeper reports to keep track of unauthorized software installations in your network to generate an IT audit.
Track Software License Keys
Automatically scan your network for several hundred different types of license keys. Supported publishers include Microsoft, Adobe, and Autodesk. Control your license key scanning, select which license keys you would like to scan or add your registry locations with specific license keys you want to scan. Retrieve keys and product IDs from computers and find the results on their respective web pages or in the built-in product key reports.
Audit Software License Purchases
Lansweeper facilitates license compliance management of general software, SQL instances, and OS installations. After indicating how many you own of each license item, Lansweeper will compare these data with scanned installation records to determine how many licenses are missing. With pricing information submitted for each license item, your license costs are calculated automatically.
