As you view your usage in Workbench, you see specific information for each area. This article details that information for each type of technology.

SaaS apps

We count the most recent number of the IdP SaaS app with the maximum number of users. If there is no IdP connected, we take the most recent number of the SaaS app with the highest number of users.

Cloud infrastructure

We apply a weighting factor to count the number of cloud resources we protect. We count the median data point from the past 30 days, which prevents the data from being skewed by outliers.

  • We weight storage resources at 25%.

  • We weight compute resources at 100%.


We count on-prem endpoint resources and don't count cloud resources. We take the most recent number of endpoint resources. We’re not including mobile devices or devices like printers, thermostats and other things with an IP address in the usage data.
