Route1 , a Toronto-based security and identity management company whose customers include the U.S. Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Energy, the Department of the Interior, and the Canadian Government, today announced the launch of its eStore .
Through Route1’s eStore, businesses of any size are now, for the first time, able to purchase the same cybersecurity, teleworking tools used by both the U.S. and Canadian governments for secure, remote access to critical data files and information.
Route1’s MobiKEY solution – the MobiKEY Classic  device and one-year TruOFFICE  subscription – is now available for less than $500 per user, and requires no network changes or additional hardware.
Top Ten Reasons for MobiKEY
|1.||Offers remote users exactly the same working experience that they have at their office|
|2.||No capital investment required – use your existing PC or laptop|
|3.||Data stays within your network’s perimeter and firewall|
|4.||Integrates seamlessly into your existing IT infrastructure|
|5.||No network changes or reconfiguration required|
|6.||No additional servers needed|
|7.||Bandwidth efficient – 20 kbps average bandwidth usage per connected user|
|8.||No software installation or administrator privileges required on the remote device|
|9.||Hardware-based, multifactor authentication|
|10.||No data cache or footprint left on remote PC or device.|
“As a global community, we face a hurricane of cyber threats, security breaches and other electronic attacks,” said Route1 CEO, Tony Busseri. “In this volatile environment, it is imperative that government, public and private enterprises of all shapes and sizes have access to the resources that will help them protect their critical information and data files. With the launch of the Route1 eStore, we are making a proven, cost-effective, reliable solution for secure, remote access – the MobiKEY – available to law firms, banks, credit unions, insurance companies, medical professionals, and small-to-medium-size businesses.”
The Company’s solution is founded on the principle of assuring the identity of an individual, not a PC, tablet, smartphone or other device. The functionality inherent to Route1’s proprietary platform and software, combined with its MobiKEY device, empowers organizations with proven tools to ensure secure remote user access, identity assurance and multifactor authentication, as well as to maintain the integrity of their critical data.
“Unfortunately, not enough organizations have looked at their policies and procedures to determine if their actual approach to protecting data is consistent with their stated approach. With the MobiKEY solution, attorneys, for example, would have the means to securely access critical client data and case information while working remotely without any risk of data theft.”
Unlike other offerings, data sessions which utilize Route1 technology are initiated from the inside out; although offsite individuals benefit from a user experience identical to when they are onsite, no data is stored on the MobiKEY device or permitted to move beyond the organization’s network perimeter, thereby eliminating the risk of cache, file transfer, middleware or footprint on a guest PC.
For an initial cost of $175 and $300 for each year of use of the technology, users can now purchase a solution that delivers the peace of mind that as they access company data remotely, they are protected from any external threats.
Route1’s philosophy on data security is simple: “Protect the Fortress.” The Company is steadfast in its commitment to ensuring that all data and internal files remain within an organization’s confines, and are not exposed to unauthorized access or unnecessary risk.
