WiX is the first Windows installer to support the latest revision of the SWID standard

The installation toolkit WiX (supported by FireGiant) is the first Windows installer toolkit to support the latest revision of the SWID Tagging Standard (19770-2:2015).  FireGiant provides dedicated support to the WiX open source toolkit and they’ve recognized the importance of accurate software identification when it comes to licensing and security!  As an open source tool, providing a consistent and normalized set of data to the organization who buy, install and manage software products simply makes sense and that’s likely why WiX supported the latest revision of SWID tags even before the standard was published by ISO.

For more information on WiX and their support for the 2015 revision of SWID tags, have a look at their blog posting – https://www.firegiant.com/blog/2015/9/9/swid-tag-2015-support-in-wix-toolset-v3.10/.
