Route1 Receives U.S. DHS Order For 7,000 MobiKEY Fusion Devices

DHS will be replacing its allotment of MobiKEY Classic devices with Route1's MobiKEY Fusion device

Toronto (September 23, 2013) - Route1 Inc. (TSXV: ROI), a digital security and identity management company whose customers include the U.S. Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Energy, and the Government of Canada, today announced that one of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's largest and most complex components (DHS) has ordered 7,000 MobiKEY Fusion devices through the U.S. Department of Homeland Security FirstSource II contract vehicle.

DHS will be replacing their allotment of MobiKEY Classic devices with Route1's MobiKEY Fusion devices. Route1 expects to ship the 7,000 devices between September 2013 and February 2014. The award has a sales value of approximately US $0.7 million.

"Route1 recently provided DHS with a technology refresh for their DEFIMNET platform. The new DEFIMNET platform allows them to use their PIV cards as part of the user authentication process. This is an important step, as all MobiKEY Fusion users at DHS will now comply with the United States Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12)," said Tony Busseri, CEO of Route1. "We have been working with leadership at DHS to assist with HSPD-12 compliancy and we are excited with today's purchase order announcement."

DHS accredited the MobiKEY solution in October 2011 and has 7,000 paid, active users of the MobiKEY technology.

MobiKEY Technology

MobiKEY is a complete desktop, secure remote access technology that integrates multi-factor authentication and identity management in a mobile computing environment. For more information on the tecvhnology please go to: https://www.route1.com/solution/overview.html.

MobiKEY Fusion Device

The MobiKEY Fusion device is a patented identity validation device that integrates with government issued identity cards such as CAC, PIV and FRAC. This multi-factor authentication technology combines physical possession of the MobiKEY Fusion device and an identity card, with computer and network access, helping government and defense organizations meet HSPD-12.

The MobiKEY Fusion device offers all of the same security features of the MC2 device while leveraging smartcards already issued to government personnel, aided by additional factors of authentication to secure the access component, while the MobiNET or the DEFIMNET platform universally manages the identities of users and entitlement to digital resources. Users can only access systems remotely with a combination of their MobiKEY Fusion device, an identity or access card and secret PIN.
