Secret Server and Secure LDAP

Monday, July 23rd, 2012

In April 2012, we released Secret Server v7.8.000036. This was the first release to include support for Secure LDAP often referred to as LDAPS (and not to be confused with SLAPD!)

Secret Server on the Treo 700

Saturday, April 19th, 2008

Secret Server has supported a “Mobile Edition” for over a year now but it is always tricky making sure that it works correctly on all devices.
