AuthControl® MSP Overview
MSP’s and MSSP’s are able to purchase AuthControl® MSP (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 MSP license pool to be centrally managed. The AuthControl® MSP appliance communicates with Swivel Secure Licensing servers to allow management of the purchased licences by the MSP/MSSP.
A dedicated instance
AuthControl Sentry® appliances AuthControl® MSP relies on the MSP/MSSP 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® MSP outside of the VMware environment such as Amazon Web Services (AWS). No individual licenses are required as licences will be allocated through AuthControl® MSP from the MSP license pool.

The Instances Manager allows you to manage AuthControl Sentry® instances. You can create, edit and exclude instances, as well as shut down, boot up, reboot or modify the configuration. Individual instance service checking allows you to check the status of a service, as well as the ability to start, stop and restart services.
The Token Manager provides flexible management of a pool of tokens. Very similar to License Manager, you can distribute tokens by instances, import directly, or simply add or remove tokens.
The License Manager allows simple and versatile management of a pool of licenses, the licenses can be allocated across managed AuthControl Sentry® instances. Licenses can be allocated, revoked and reallocated as needed.
Dashboard and reporting
Visibility and management of the AuthControl Sentry® instances is performed through our graphical user interface. The primary dashboard provides easily digestible information regarding the status of instances, licenses distribution, active users, number of authentications and attempts.
The reporting capability provides the ability to generate reports both manually and scheduled (delivered via email) and allows exporting the data into CSV or Excel.
