    MyWorkspace Connector


    Enrolling users for cloud applications becomes daily business IT has to manage. Users want instant access to GotoMeeting, Office365 or any other cloud applications right at the moment. The recurring manual process of onboarding (neither offboarding) users for cloud applications is intensive for IT and bumpy for users. With MyWorkspace Connector Matrix42 leverage your existing application and user management to a new level. Users can easily shop cloud applications like GotoMeeting conveniently through their company Service Catalog and provisioning is done automatically without any manual IT interaction but with full control. Users have instant access to the application in MyWorkspace with familiar user experience. And if an employee leaves you can simply offboard the user within seconds.Sounds beneficial? We believe yes, try out our fist incarnations of the vision.

    System Metering


    Matrix42 System Metering supports you identifying how many licenses you need for installed and used software products.

    Download the installer package to your application server, extract and run install.cmd as administrator.

    After installation you will be asked if you want to execute the metering. In addition you find an item in Windows Server start menu (Matrix42 System Metering) that you can use to run the metering at any time. Please note that you may have to run this as administrator.

    Updated: 18.02.2019
    Metering Version: 5

    The new version takes application settings into account to identify devices in the relevant status.

    ES Connector (EgoSecure, Ensilo)


    This connector package allows to import security events gathered by enSilo (and soon EgoSecure) and show them in the Workspace Management Console (UUX). For each imported event an Incident will be created that holds references to as much master data as possible. Currently the affected asset(s) will be matched by their device name and the affected users will be matched by their domain account name. The Incident's description is filled with the basic information of the event. But the event object itself is referenced as well to allow for further details to be retrieved (e.g. Users/Assets that could not be matched). Importing an Event from enSilo will set it as 'read' for the API user in enSilo itself, so further imports will not take care of updated events (e.g. when new raw events were added).
