Compliant software per server / server groups is assessed according to policies and a continuous analysis of the current status.
The software compliance module takes care of the management of the full software inventory for Windows- and Linux systems. A continuous retrieval of the installed software is done as well as the display of currently and previously installed software.
Policies can be defined for software compliance rules including permitted software and software packages, minimum software versions and blacklisted software. Thereby the analysis of compliance in accordance with policies and historical progression is achieved.
Alerts point to software with known vulnerabilities.
The module also includes licence management with continuous comparison of licence information per software with the overall installed software base.
