BigFix® Inventory can identify an organization’s licensed and unlicensed software with drill-down granularity to track software usage patterns and trends across Windows, Mac OS, UNIX and Linux endpoints. Dramatically reducing the time required to conduct a comprehensive software asset inventory for license reconciliation or compliance purposes, the solution provides valuable insight into what the organization owns—and what it has installed but doesn’t own—along with how often the software is being used in order to support better planning, budgeting and vendor license compliance while mitigating security risk.

The near-instant visibility into enterprise assets provided by BigFix Inventory can be vital to optimizing asset control and operations in the interconnected, instrumented and intelligent technology environments of today’s smarter planet.

Easy to use and centrally managed from a unified console, the solution enables continuous asset assessment and reporting with low total cost of ownership and high return on investment. Not only does BigFix Inventory discover and manage applications—down to the version level—the insights it provides can translate into significant cost savings for organizations that are spending more than necessary on software licensing fees.
