According to "computerworld", Good Technology announced Good Vault, a system for adding two-factor authentication to the iPhone 4 and 4S for access to Good for Enterprise email.
The system will be especially valuable for government agencies and companies in highly regulated industries, such as healthcare and financial services, where it's critical to ensure that data is protected from unauthorized users if an employee's smartphone is lost or stolen, said Good Technology CTO Nicko van Someren.
With the Vault system, one of two sleeves is attached to the iPhone: One that can read a smart card or one that can read a microSD card, he said. Once either of the sleeves is in place, inserting the microSD or smart card becomes one component of the two-factor identification process, while typing in a PIN is the second. Once authenticated, users would have access to Good for Enterprise email.
If a phone is lost or stolen while the microSD or smart card is inserted in the sleeve, the PIN would still be needed for access to Good for Enterprise email. Good's management software supports remote wipes of data from smartphones.
