Study: Microsoft Is #1 Software Auditor

Flexera and IDC conducted a survey of 1,828 software and enterprise executives and found that 58 percent of respondents reported getting audits from Microsoft within the last year.

Following Microsoft in audit frequency were:

  • Adobe
  • IBM
  • Oracle
  • SAP
  • Symantec

Microsoft is now the top issuer of software audits for the second year in a row (this same survey is conducted annually). The survey also stated that 63 percent of respondents reported receiving audits in the last 18 to 24 months. Only 17 percent of the total respondents indicated that they had “never been audited.”

Those odds are not in favor of escaping an audit – best to be prepared!
