QUEST

THE CHALLENGE

Compliance & Audit Defense

Quest has been the most aggressive and difficult publisher in the auditing space over the past 2-years.  Their audit teams are highly incentivized to drive up the cost of findings which are aided by vague and inconsistent licensing rules, crude data collection and analysis, and products that are difficult to track.

If you've been notified by Quest of an audit, do not delay.  By working with a team who has been though the process before, you can seize control of the process and potentially save millions.

Tres Larsen is a former software auditor who ran​ KPMG's Microsoft Audit Practice.
