    Still useless for those that require two factor authentication such as RSA SecurID.

      Good point.. With the Surface not being able to join the domain there would seem to be no other way to let it in if you have RSA as a second authentication(like we do).

        Meaning RT not Pro that is.

      RSA told me that the RSA Softtoken will be available for Windows Phone 7.5 and 8 this month. Can’t be long till the Soft token software will be available for Windows 8 too.

    This has been in the store since day 1. I tested it with my Surface and it works pretty well. Its one of the reasons this with RDS will allow for a lot of companies to deploy Surfaces instead of iPads. I know of 3 companies that will be deploying them instead of iPads because of the common UX, management. and security. For users who need access to applications locally they will get Surface Pros or some other x86 based tablet. Its going to be a very interesting year.

    I still think it only works for enterprise citrix users not the small business users. My company uses https://citrixweb.********.com/ and I can’t get this receiver to work.
