AuthControl® Enterprise for Cloud Overview

License flexibility

Enterprise organisations can subscribe to AuthControl® Cloud, where licenses in use are calculated and billed monthly. License Manager allows simple and versatile management of a pool of licences, which can be allocated across managed AuthControl Sentry® instances – whether On-Premise, in the Cloud, or a mixture of both.

Licenses can be allocated, revoked and reallocated as needed within and across instances. Licenses are added to the Enterprise license pool to be managed centrally. The AuthControl® Enterprise and Cloud-based appliances communicate with Swivel Secure Licensing servers to allow management of the purchased licenses and subscriptions by the Enterprise organisations.

A dedicated instance: AuthControl® Cloud appliances

AuthControl® Cloud relies on the Enterprise Organisation deploying at least two AuthControl Sentry® appliances within a VMWare environment controlled and orchestrated with VMWare Vcentre Server.

These AuthControl Sentry® appliances can be stand-alone or HA pair and need to be purchased from Swivel Secure. Alternative virtual environments can be imported into AuthControl® Enterprise outside the VMware environment – for example, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud.

No individual licenses are required, as licenses will be allocated through AuthControl® Enterprise from the enterprise organisation license pool.

Managing AuthControl® Cloud

Instances The Instances Manager allows you to manage AuthControl® Cloud. You can create, edit and exclude instances and shut down, boot up, reboot or modify the configuration. Individual instance service checking allows you to check the status of a service's status and the ability to start, stop and restart services.

Dashboard and reporting

Our graphical user interface performs the visibility and management of the AuthControl Sentry® instances on our Cloud Platform. The primary dashboard provides easily digestible information regarding the status of instances, license distribution, active users, number of authentications and attempts. The reporting capability provides the ability to generate reports manually and on a set schedule (delivered via email) and allows exporting the data into CSV or Excel.
