Naren Bhagi: With increase in BYOD, data protection & usage of illegal software licenses needs to be controlled.

Increasing Audits (both external & internal), high expenditure on Licencing, High legal costs due to failure in adhering to compliant practices makes this a priority area for organizations. Also, the Non-availability of enough skilled resources to both maintain the compliance and manage the licenses makes it a priority area for the management to focus on this subject.
