Scorpion Software AuthAnvil Authentication Keyfob Tokens Have Arrived

While at the SMB Nation Fall Conference we took advantage of Scorpion Software’s bundled special.

We had a package arrive not long after we did that with five AuthAnvil tokens in it. Though they are not on the integration To Do list yet.

Once we have migrated our SBS to 2008, we will get in touch with Scorpion to schedule an installation training session that they are providing as part of the package.

Once we have done that, we will then have two factor authentication in place for our own network.

We will then begin to talk to our clients about augmenting their security setup with the AuthAnvil.

Scorpion Software has a good demonstration video here:

Check out some of the auditing features that are demonstrated near the end of the demo video. For folks that have one username for many tasks, AuthAnvil can actually track which user logged in using that account and from where.

This is a pretty neat product and should be a serious consideration for any organization dealing with sensitive client data.
