Quest Software - An overview of the most common compliance issues
A B-lay white paper
Quest Software was originally founded in 1987 and is best known for its software product Toad (Tool for Oracle Application Developers). The Toad product is used by database developers, database administrators and data analysts to manage both relational and non-relational databases using SQL. In 2012, the software publisher was acquired by Dell. In June 2016, Dell announced the sale its software division (including its Quest, SonicWall, and One Identity businesses) to a private equity firm Francisco Partners and investment management firm Elliott Management Corporation. A relaunch of Quest software took place having its fiscal year from January to December. Since the relaunch of Quest Software, a large amount of software audits has been performed.
This whitepaper aims to provide more clarity around the way Quest software audits are performed and help you be prepared in case you'll be facing one at some point.
