This software audit tool allows you to remotely collect a list of installed applications and updates from Windows PCs located in a LAN/WAN. The collected information is stored in a centralized database and includes the application name, version, installation date and other fields available in the Programs and Components dialog in Windows. This information can be exported to CSV files and compared with the results of previous scans to audit the changes.
EMCO Network Software Scanner is designed to perform basic software audit operations in local networks. You can use it to extract information about installed software from PCs located in Windows domains and workgroups. All operations with network PCs are performed remotely and invisible for end users. No client installation or special configuration are required to collect software inventory data remotely from network PCs.
How does the software audit process work? You should specify the group of network PCs to be scanned or let the application scan all available PCs in the network. Also, you have to specify the credentials with an administrative access to the remote PCs. That's all you need to start a scan. When a scan is finished, you can see its results on a screen and export them to a file.
