Activating Security Controls

Until you activate Security Controls, you are very limited in the actions you are allowed to perform. There are three activation methods:

Credentials Activation Method This activation method should be used if you are a new customer and you have an internet connection from the console. It provides greater control over how you consume your available license seats. If you do not have an internet connection, use the License Key Activation Method. If you are an existing customer and you wish to use this method, contact your sales representative for the necessary credentials.

License Key Activation Method This is the legacy activation method. It should be used if you began using Security Controls prior to version 2020.1 and you need to refresh your license following an upgrade. It is also used by anyone who does not have an internet connection from the console.

Trial Activation Method This is the activation method that should be used if you are using the program on a trial basis. It enables you to test all the capabilities of Security Controls, but only for 60 days. You are also limited to 50 license seats. When the trial license expires, the program will stop refreshing its data files and many of the program features will no longer be available.
