What Is Software Compliance?

Software Compliance

Software compliance refers to the practice of ensuring that an organization adheres to the terms provided by software license agreements. This often involves verifying that the number of active licenses does not exceed the number acquired. Compliance is a critical aspect of software licensing and asset management, essential for all businesses.

Compliance in this context means conducting thorough audits of installed software to ensure it matches the organization's legal entitlements. A practical approach to achieving this is to consolidate all purchase documents to verify licensing status and understand license terms clearly.

Why Is Software Compliance Crucial?

Software compliance has become increasingly vital in the IT industry, with companies like Adobe and Microsoft actively using legal measures to enforce the lawful use of their software. Copyright infringement and unauthorized software usage are now major legal concerns. Therefore, companies must understand their compliance status to avoid legal complications and protect the organization. Neglect or unawareness can lead to significant issues, underscoring the importance of maintaining software compliance.
