License Audit - How it Works

[ultimate_heading main_heading=”Data Collection” main_heading_color=”#2e94d6″]In order for us to analyse your technical estate, we need lots of data. There are three ways to obtain this data.[/ultimate_heading]

1

[bsf-info-box icon_type=”custom” img_width=”48″]Run proprietary License Audit scripts on your technical estate.[/bsf-info-box]

2

[bsf-info-box icon_type=”custom” img_width=”48″]If you are being audited by Oracle LMS, the auditor wants you to run the Oracle LMS audit scripts.

No need to run our scripts as well, we can analyse the LMS script output and look forward to benchmark our analysis against Oracle’s.[/bsf-info-box]

[bsf-info-box icon_type=”custom” img_width=”48″]Using raw output from vendor tools certified
by Oracle LMS such as:

– Flexera
– Snow
– Vendorpage[/bsf-info-box]

Depending on your technical estate we have three different scripts you can run.

License Audit offers an optional tool to encrypt the generated output at no additional cost. It is highly recommended to use it to comply with your internal security stand- ards.
Encryption is done on your local PC using a password of minimum 32 characters, as well as a salt of minimum 16 characters. Upon encryption, a reference table is generated allowing easy de-cryption. Decryption online is an option using your password and salt, which only works for your browser session. License Audit securely deletes uploaded data after data processing.
Security officers from several financial institutions and government organizations reviewed the security levels to find them safe for frequent use. View the documentation to learn more.[/bsf-info-box]
