To take advantage of the centralized protection management features included in all Emsisoft products, you need to migrate your license to a workspace. A workspace defines your home or organization environment and acts as a container to monitor and configure all your devices.

Please follow these easy steps to get started with a new workspace:

1. Name your new workspace

Start by logging in at MyEmsisoft. If you don’t already have a workspace, it will ask you to name it right away. Alternatively, click the ‘Create workspace’ button at the ‘Workspaces’ dashboard.

Enter a name for your new Emsisoft workspace

2. Install and connect your protected devices

Click ‘Download’, even if you already have the protection installed on your computer. The installer is very small and will connect your device with your newly created workspace.

Download or email the download link

The installer doesn’t require any user interaction. Setting up the connection may take about 30 seconds.

Connecting your device to the workspace (~30 sec)

Once completed, you will see the following notification on your protected device:

3. Import your personal license or apply a license key

If your currently used license is assigned to your personal user account, you will see the ‘Re-assign a license’ panel on top.

Alternatively you can always use the ‘Apply license key’ option to add any unassigned license.

Migration complete!

You’re all set and your protected devices can now be centrally managed via MyEmsisoft.

Please refer to the Emsisoft Cloud Console User Guide for an introduction to the rich management features.
