For each application in the view you can see the following information:

  • Application name.
  • Risk level - Low, Medium, High. The risk level is calculated by taking a wide range of parameters into consideration including product security, data security, compliance with relevant industry industry standards, publicly available reports and policies, the vendor’s geographic location, and more.
  • Managed by - An application can be managed either by an Axonius adapter or the organization’s SSO solution.
  • Managed Users - Users of managed applications, which are applications either connected to an Axonius adapter or managed by the organization using an SSO solution. Mouse over the label to see a breakdown by types of managed users.
  • Shadow users - Users of shadow (or unmanaged) applications. These applications are not connected to an Axonius adapter and not managed by the organization using a SSO solution. Mouse over the label to see a breakdown by type of shadow users.
  • Discovered - An application user that is discovered by means other than an adapter or an SSO solution.
