Software Auditing

It is commonplace for companies throughout the world to use unlicensed software. This may be because managers are unaware of what software is installed on the company’s computers and they would therefore be oblivious to any potential threats associated with this or the fact that they are in breach of the law. In the event that these computers were audited by enforcement agencies, the company may be liable for a sizeable fine.

In addition, it may be that the company’s computers are infected with malware.

DSS is able to audit the software installed on a client’s computers so as to log all of the software, appraise whether this satisfies the company’s requirements and contemplate ways in which any risks can be mitigated.


DSS’s auditing procedures are performed without disturbing the operation of the client’s computer system. Moreover, the service can be conducted at a time suiting the client so as to avoid interfering with the company’s day-to-day operations. In accordance with the nondisclosure agreement, the audit will not compromise the company’s information, thereby ensuring unequivocal client confidentiality.
