VIA dual factor authentication ?


I have a question specific to VIA and dual factor authentication. 


I have an issue with iPads and Droid tablets when using Cisco FW/VPN and RSA for dual factor authentication. 


First factor is a simple user ID and password. 


Second factor authentication is delivered from the RSA in the form of a question to the device.


Using a Windows or Mac laptop the RSA question clear. When using an iPad or Droid the question is scrambled and not readable. After a call with RSA we understand the issue is with RSA solution and something to do with flash and how they deliver the question. In any case, iPads and Droids are prevented from using VPN access because users can't answer the the question. 


Previously we tested VIA and it worked well for single factor authentication, user ID and password. Thinking outside of the box can the VIA app and the Aruba controller provide 2 factor authentication? Perhaps a requirement for a user ID and password as first factor and a unique certificate on the tablet as a second factor ? 


Any suggestions are appreciated ..
