Creating Licenses from Filesets

Since the FileWave Client can deep scan your Client systems, it can find any file that meets the criteria you wish to be aware of. This functionality also exists in the primary Inventory pane in FileWave Admin; but the License Management section allows you to tag the query with the watermark triggers.

For example, you might have purchased or just deployed a few systems running an application that is being tested for later widespread deployment. You want to keep an eye on that application to make sure unauthorized copies of it don't leak out. Since you created a Fileset for the application to deploy it, you can easily create a license to track it.

Instead of having to create any criteria for locating the applications, FileWave uses the Fileset definition. At the same time, it will key in on any copies of that specific package, should it show up on more devices than specified.
