Symantec has also released multiple products that include 19770–2 tags and is committed to helping move the software community to a more consistent and normalized approach to software identification and eventually to a more automated approach to compliance. A single unit of software may also include supporting software units which may be independently installed and executed, as well as changes to the underlying operating environment, such as the addition of device drivers and entries in an operating system maintained tables and databases.
Ina non-profit organization called TagVault. There are a number of characteristics of IT assets which create these additional or more detailed requirements.

Software is part of the critical infrastructure for the modern world. The SWID tag standard was developed to help overcome the technical challenges associated with software discovery, identification, and contextualization, and thereby enhance the accuracy and reliability of software asset management processes. An overview of the standard is available from ISO and is available in English here.

Organizations can create their SWID tags for any software title that does not include a tag, allowing the organization to more accurately track software installations in their network environment. Benefits SWID Tags offer benefits to creators of software products as well as those who acquire and use those software products.
