AuthControl® Enterprise Overview
Enterprise organisations are able to purchase AuthControl® Enterprise (a software-based Command & Control appliance), licences and tokens to enable the delivery of the service. License Manager allows simple and versatile management of a pool of licences, which can be allocated across managed AuthControl Sentry® instances.
Licenses can be allocated, revoked and reallocated as needed within
and across instances. Licenses are added to the Enterprise license pool to be centrally managed. The AuthControl® Enterprise appliance communicates with Swivel Secure Licensing servers to allow management of the purchased licenses by the Enterprise organisations.
A dedicated instance: AuthControl Sentry® appliances
AuthControl® Enterprise 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 of the VMware environment such as Amazon Web Services (AWS).
No individual licenses are required, as licenses will be allocated through AuthControl® Enterprise from the enterprise organisation license pool.
