RSA introduces SecureID token for iPhone
RSA has launched a new SecureID token for iPhones that can be
used to authenticate enterprise applications and resources.
Available for free downloads from the App store, the software token generates a new password every 60 seconds. With one tap, users can enable the App with a unique software token seed provided by their IT organization.
According to RSA, the software tokens can help decrease total cost of ownership for organizations as they do not require any physical shipping, can be revoked and automatically redeployed if an iPhone is lost, eliminating the need for replacement tokens. Having the software authenticator on a business critical device like the iPhone also reduces the number of lost or forgotten hardware tokens, decreasing the number of costly technical support calls.
