This article explains how to connect Attivo to Workbench.

Step 1: Enable console access


Expel secures all login information our SOC analysts need about your devices in a MFA password product. Access to this login information is protected using our internal MFA processes. To learn more about the IP addresses all Expel traffic comes from, go here.

  1. Administration > User Accounts > Configure.

  2. Select +Add from the Users List.

    • For User Type select local.

    • Select Privileges checkbox for Admin.

    • For Username type expelsoc.

    • For First Name type Expel.

    • For Last Name type SOC.

    • Type a Password.


After console access is established, the remaining onboarding steps for this technology can also be performed by Expel. Reach out to your engagement manager and we're happy to complete the integration!
