Insufficient management of these intangible IT assets poses a potential financial risk to all companies.
Torrance, CA (PRWEB) January 6, 2009
It is estimated that 30 percent of a company's assets are tied up in computers, software and other information technology, which makes protecting these assets paramount. Netkiller America promises to take asset risk management into a new era with the debut of its latest license management software at the January 8 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
Netkiller IT Asset Management (ITAM) instantly detects computer software and hardware, verifies both licensed and unlicensed programs, and continues to manage installed software licenses. The software is capable of preventing unauthorized installations, and of scanning copyrighted materials in real time.
A recent survey revealed that approximately 65 percent of the average IT manager's working hours is spent in tedious asset inventory management, leaving just 35 percent of their time for valuable business operations and job performance improvements.
"As businesses grow, the burden of software license management is becoming increasingly more difficult," explains Netkiller CEO SungWook Jung. "Insufficient management of these intangible IT assets poses a potential financial risk to all companies."
Netkiller ITAM's software license management features offer a great measure of protection from these risks for companies of all types and sizes. It automates assets controls and assists with lifecycle management, allowing IT managers to focus on more important IT missions such as improving performance and business operations. Netkiller IT Asset Management, along with other software, is sold online at Netkiller America's Web site, Netkiller.com.
"The Netkiller ITAM program insulates a company from the risks of penalty for copyright infringement, and at the same time maintains software security, accuracy and compliance," said Jung. "The license tracking software allows you to monitor the status of installed applications on each computer in the network in real time, thus avoiding ethical issues and noncompliance with software licensing law."
Netkiller Professional ITAM allows IT departments to track applications on every computer, including the version or release number, the number of copies in use and whether or not an employees' software is fully licensed.
Other functions include:
hardware and software detection
allocation, return or transfer of IT assets, and calculation of depreciation
management of IT asset life cycles
calculation of CO2 emissions and power consumptions
automatic updating and allocation of computer by IT managers.
Netkiller offers freeware that can search and manage hardware and Microsoft software licenses, in addition to the advanced full version. The company is currently offering customers a free Software Compliance Guidebook, valued at $1,000, with the purchase of any of the company's software products.
