VMware announce Verify 2FA

Up until now if you wanted two factor authentication with VMware you used a radius integration partner such as RSA or Swivel to name but two, but now you have a new option. VMware has now included it’s own 2FA within its Identity Manager product for free.

Basically it’s just an evolution of the EVORail product but believe me it’s much better and I think that they have got it right this time so I expect the likes of Nutanix to be given a run for their money.
