There is a common misconception that Software Asset Management (SAM) tools can completely mitigate your risk of a costly and disruptive audit. In fact, studies show zero correlation between having a SAM tool in place and whether you will end up paying audit fees or how much you will ultimately pay. Access this helpful guide in order to:

- Get examples of workarounds or processes to protect you when your SAM tool cannot
- Avoid getting tripped up by remote user access, misinterpreted environment designations, hard-to-measure licensing metrics, and more
- Learn what to do when tools fail to correctly account for Active Directory, unauthorized license keys and chargeable features that can be turned on or off
