Route1 Launches MobiENCRYPT – Smart Card Based Full Disk Encryption Technology

Innovative offering provides remote and local full disk encryption access to government and enterprise organizations

Toronto, August 9, 2016 - Route1 Inc. (TSXV: ROI) (the Company or Route1), a world-leader in secure data protection technologies and user authentication for government and enterprise, today announced the launch of MobiENCRYPT, a hardware solution delivering remote and local full disk encryption (FDE) access that exceeds the most stringent government and military privacy and security standards. MobiENCRYPT enables a secure mobile workforce by leveraging identity card-based credentials to protect government organizations from data-at-rest loss and security breaches.

Part of Route1’s suite of patented security solutions, MobiENCRYPT integrates with government-issued CAC and PIV identity card technology, offering true multi-factor authentication. The technology provides fast and seamless pre-boot authentication that allows government employees to access their workspaces quickly, without compromising on security. More affordable and secure than other hardware or software-only solutions, MobiENCRYPT enables a mobile and flexible workforce while protecting government-furnished equipment (GFE) from loss or theft. Once encrypted, GFE remains encrypted after local and remote logins by authorized personnel, while other solutions offer local access only.

Yamian Quintero, CTO of Route1 Inc., commented on today’s news, “MobiENCRYPT is the gold standard in remote and local full disk encryption. We developed the technology based directly on the feedback from our U.S. federal government customers, who collectively expressed a real need for portable full disk encryption solution that enables users to access their secure workspaces without placing sensitive data at risk. Our innovative technology solution is simple to deploy and scales to fit any organization’s needs. It protects from the financial and operational risks associated with data loss, unauthorized system access and privacy non-compliance.”

MobiENCRYPT integrates with MobiNET (DEFIMNET), Route1’s proven universal identity management and service delivery platform, to grant authorized access quickly and seamlessly. MobiNET (DEFIMNET) enables administrators to manage users and GFE with robust tools, including non-encrypted asset identification, key recovery, and remote key revocation. As a mobile access solution that securely connects organizational assets with employees, mobile workers and contractors, MobiENCRYPT offers a number of unique benefits, including:
