Route1 Broadens Global Reach With UK Office


TORONTO, Canada, July 18/PRNewswire/ -- Market Demand for Flagship MobiKEY Product Drives Route1 Into United Kingdom and France

Route1, Inc.(TM) (TSX-V:ROI), a market leader in providing secure,
identity-managed remote computing solutions, today announced that it will be
selling the Route1 MobiKEY into the United Kingdom and European Markets. The
Company's growth initiatives in this market will be supported through a
relationship with Sales Partnering Limited, a business partner for
companies wishing to expand into the United Kingdom and European markets.

"There has been increasing interest in the MobiKEY in Europe,
particularly from some of the larger telecommunications companies," said
Andrew White, CEO of Route1. "With a presence today in Latin America and
Germany, expansion into the United Kingdom and France was inevitable. By
joining forces with Sales Partnering, we can leverage their expertise and
expansive networks to very quickly build out our channel in the European
market."

Route1 meets the needs of its customers by selling its solution
through an extensive network of highly specialized global channel partners.
"Route1 has developed a highly secure and powerful product that is not only
simple to use, but drives immediate value for any business," said Roger
Bates, CEO of Sales Partnering. "We are pleased to be the UK agent for
Route1 as they grow their business into new regions and expand their
network of channel partners."

Recent reports of stolen laptops, compromised data, security and
privacy breaches are forcing organizations to re-examine their remote
access solutions. Powered by MobiNET, the Route1 MobiKEY is ideal for
businesses that want to provide employees with secure access to use their
office computer while visiting customers, working from home or while
travelling. MobiKEY can also be used for security, disaster recovery and
business continuity while meeting an organization's regulatory compliance
needs.

Route1's approach to computing provides organizations with tremendous
cost savings in identity management and the deployment of a public key
infrastructure (PKI). It eliminates the need to buy, build and maintain a
costly security infrastructure.

Route1 currently has customers and channel partners in 7 different
countries, including the United States, Germany, Mexico and Bermuda. "The
rapid acceptance of our technology, particularly in the telecommunications
and government sectors, is extremely encouraging," said White.
