LicenseFortress® was born after we were approached by VMware about a predicament that many of their customers were facing when trying to license Oracle on VMware. Oracle's aggressive auditing tactics shed light on the dire situation that most companies face when using Oracle's products, especially in a cloud environment. While some companies have been deterred from using Oracle, we believe it is a powerful tool for your business when deployed correctly. That's where LicenseFortress® helps you take control of your license investment while removing the threat of being out of compliance.

We offer the industries only solution with a financial guarantee, legal defense and real-time intelligent license compliance monitoring. We are confident about our added value. In many cases – including reducing compliance claims – we will guarantee that our value greatly exceeds our cost; In situations where clients have already taken steps to reduce a claim but want to achieve even better results. In such situations – but also when reducing the annual support fee at the stage where you no longer believe it is possible – we are typically able to work on a no-cure-no-pay basis.

We are dedicated to helping Oracle's licensing customers and partners understand and implement Oracle's licensing strategies worldwide. Our goal is to help you optimize your software investment by enhancing your understanding of Oracle's licensing and pricing practices.
