eBook | Unmasking the Stealth Threat: The Hidden Cost of Pirated Software and its Impact on Business Resilience
The Business Software Alliance’ (BSA) most recent Global Software Survey reveals 37 percent of software in use globally is unlicensed and the commercial value of that is approximately $46.3 billion. The cost of unlicensed software causes colossal damage to both software vendors and its users. For example, malware attacked on counterfeit software alone costs companies approximately $359 billion annually. Besides legal and financial repercussions, it can also cause productivity and reputation loss as well.
