K2 – KeyAuditor & KeyServer Overview

K2 - KeyAuditor & KeyServer is an award winning hardware and Software Asset Management (SAM) suite that integrates hardware & software audit inventories with purchase histories, usage tracking, and active software license management to give you comprehensive oversight and control.

K2 gives you the data and automated management that is necessary to both document and maintain compliance while making best use of software assets and managing your IT budget.

Accurate Inventory Data
