Here's a video that shows the initial version of the Quest Defender Desktop token for the Apple iPhone. The Desktop Token is the latest addition to Quest's range of electronic security devices. Quest developed the Desktop Token so that it integrates with the iPhone's security mechanisms enabling a more secure connection between the device and your corporate network. The iPhone token allows the iPhone to authenticate the user in the same way as a Quest hardware token - and, of course, via Active Directory.
I think this is pretty cool and as more and more iPhones get utilized with Microsoft Exchange and integrated with corporate environments folks are going to want stronger security.
Reminder: We have a couple of webcasts coming up next week on Defender. Sign up here:
