Software Audits have been a challenge for organizations for years – whether from software publishers themselves, through their auditing partners such as Deloitte and KPMG, or the number of industry watchdogs around the world such as the Business Software Alliance (BSA), the Federation Against Software Theft (FAST) or the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA).
