Tighter Travel Restrictions and Security Disruptions Demand New Business Continuity Strategies

TORONTO, Aug. 21 /Route1, Inc.(TM) (TSX-V:ROI), a market leader in providing secure, identity-managed remote computing solutions, today announced that it is offering a free, 15-day trial of the Route1 MobiKEY. This ultra-portable, smart-card enabled, cryptographic USB device securely connects users to desktop and network resources from any Internet-enabled Windows-based PC, providing an insurance policy for business continuity and disaster preparedness that organizations don't have to wait to use. Business users can sign up for the trial offer by visiting www.route1.com/trial and completing the submission form.

"We are living in a world where threats of terrorism and concerns around a global pandemic are becoming part of the everyday norm. It is more important than ever that organizations re-evaluate their business continuity strategies to ensure they are prepared for disruption at a moment's notice," said Andrew White, CEO of Route1. "The ability to implement a business continuity plan should be a right for every organization, not just a privilege for those that are not impacted by budget constraints. Route1 provides a cost effective, simple, scalable and highly secure solution that not only provides the flexibility to respond to emergency situations, but can also be used to meet the day-to-day computing needs of the workforce."

When the airlines temporarily banned laptop computers, PDA devices and mobile phones from carry on baggage in the wake of last week's terror threats, business travelers had no choice but to check these devices. This created uncertainty around possible damage to these devices; the security of sensitive corporate data; physical damage; as well as the loss of luggage such as the estimated 10,000 bags checked in by British Airways passengers that have reportedly gone missing at airports since the recent security alert first began.

With Route1's MobiKEY, users have secure access to their office computer, desktop, and digital applications from virtually any location in the world. The MobiKEY minimizes information security risks by eliminating the need for users to carry around a laptop or other mobile device loaded with corporate data and applications. If the MobiKEY device is lost or stolen, corporate networks cannot be compromised in any way. This makes it ideal for both day to day computing needs, or business continuity around natural disasters, quarantine, inclement weather and other disruptive occurrences.

Route1 provides ironclad protection that exceeds the common definition of military-grade security by combining the strength of a PKI solution with the trust of two-factor authentication and consistently surpassing the stringent mandates and policies established by government and financial institutions in securing their day-to-day operations. This ensures that business users can connect to digital resources including data, applications and network assets from anywhere in the world, without compromise.
