SaaS License Compliance

As most companies shift to a greater adoption of cloud services, it may appear that SaaS license compliance is less of a concern. After all, how can you be out of compliance when the provider controls your access to the product?

Great question, but… Just because SaaS products are accessed through the cloud, don’t assume you are in the clear. In fact, the cloud may have tamped down some license compliance concerns, but it has also created new ones. There are just as many regulations around SaaS license compliance as traditional software, and the terms are very different. On top of that, SaaS companies can access a great deal of information about what your employees are using –– perhaps more than you know yourself!
