For ActiveRoles customers using or considering using Quest Defender, integration between the two products is a requirement. Being able to perform OTP token management from the point where user management is performed is one key to efficient management of strong authentication.
Token Management from the ActiveRoles Web Console
I was working with a customer this week who had a requirement to manage Quest Defender two factor tokens through the ActiveRoles MMC console. While I knew this was under development, I did not realize you can get it today without waiting for the next release of Defender. Integration with the ActiveRoles MMC can be critical for customers who are primarily using the MMC for day-to-day or help desk operations.
The ActiveRoles integration pack on the Defender 5.6 CD installs property pages and commands into the ActiveRoles Web Interface only. Separately, Defender Software update 184.108.40.20693 adds token management and property tabs into the ActiveRoles MMC on user property pages. This update can be obtained through the Quest support site and you will need to install two components 1) Defender ARS Integration Pack_Update_220.127.116.1193 and 2) Defender Administration Console_Update_18.104.22.16893.
