Aspera wins $1.3 Million software and services deal to manage license compliance and optimization at high-profile tech company
BOSTON, MA – June 27, 2019 – Aspera, the leading provider of solutions and services for Software Asset Management (SAM), today announced that a global internet infrastructure provider (The “customer”) has signed a $1.3 million agreement to use Aspera’s full range of license management products and services.
The ability to keep up with a high volume of licenses was the key driver for choosing Aspera. The customer, an internet and security provider with an annual revenue of over $1.7 billion, required a partner to provide a SAM solution that automates compliance and optimization of its major software vendors.
Project sponsorship was ultimately led by the Chief Security Officer. Following a highly competitive evaluation process, Aspera’s software license management and license optimization tools were selected as the best technical solution to meet the customer’s complex needs. Data center consolidation, software re-harvesting, and optimization capabilities with complex vendors also impacted the selection process.
