PINsafe® – Patented Technology
How does PINsafe® work?
Each user is issued a PIN number – however, this exact PIN is never typed in.
When a user needs to securely authenticate, they’re sent a 10-digit security string – a random sequence of characters or numbers. The security string can be displayed as a graphic (TURing, PINpad® or PICpad) or sent via email or through SMS verification.
By using the PIN as a positional indicator, one-time code for authentication can be extracted.
Can you show me an example?
The example above shows your PIN is 1370. On this occasion the security string is 5721694380, so your login code is 5240.
The security string can be integrated with many devices and applications, in a variety of ways for complete flexibility. Including:
– Logging into Windows

AuthControl Sentry® Standard Features
Single sign-on (SSO) functionality for AuthControl Sentry® provides users with the ability to access all of their applications with a single authentication process. This ensures users can work efficiently without compromising security.
Risk-based authentication (RBA) is a dynamic feature of AuthControl Sentry®. Based on parameters set in the policy engine, RBA will request the appropriate level of authentication to access applications based on the user, their device and the application.
The User Portal is designed to provide administrators with a configurable solution to allow users autonomy for basic self-administration tasks. The User Portal gives users direct access to execute regular requirements such as changing or resetting a PIN, or provisioning the mobile app.
Swivel Secure’s AuthControl® MSP is designed from the ground up to provide Managed Services Providers (MSP) and Managed Security Services Providers (MSSP).
