Asset Management Suite lets you audit software license compliance by comparing the number of the software product installs to the amount of purchased licenses.
Managing the software licenses in your environment lets you easily report software license compliance for software audits. It minimizes the risk that software installs exceed the amount of software licenses. Software license compliance reports let you plan your future software purchases more accurately.
To set up software license compliance, you must first collect data about the software that is installed on your client computers. After you discover the software, you insert information about the purchased licenses. Software license items let you tie together the software product information and the amount of purchased licenses.
To manage software license compliance, you can use Asset Management Suite pages or you can use the Symantec Management Console enhanced views.
