No One Is Immune to Microsoft's Software Audits

How Prepared Is Your Organization?

by James Nagurney | 07.07.14

Recently, I was struck by a survey that I found on an industry website. A link to the full article is below, but here’s the gist: Microsoft is auditing its customers at a brisk pace, and no company is immune. All software vendors retain the rights to audit their clients, and we feel that it is fair to expect these periodic compliance checks. But Microsoft is auditing customers at a 2 to 1 rate over other vendors like Adobe, IBM, and Oracle—58% of executives surveyed said they have been audited by Microsoft in the last 12 months*. Five years ago, these types of audits were relatively rare and only encountered under specific situations. Today Microsoft absolutely does not discriminatethere need be no compelling event or “areas of concern” to trigger a compliance check on your Microsoft software. Most often we are seeing Microsoft approach customers via email to conduct a self-audit, but we also see the more invasive, third-party types of audit that will send a shiver down any CIO’s spine. The different kinds of audits that are being imposed really do run the gamut.
