HP and Route1 Selected by U.S. Navy to Pilot DEFIMNET® and MobiKEY® Fusion

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 2, 2010) - HP (NYSE:HPQ) and Route1 Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ROI), a security and identity-based services company, today announced that HP and Route1 have been selected to participate in a six-month pilot project to deploy the Route1 DEFIMNET® (Defense Identity Management Network) and MobiKEY® Fusion devices to the U.S. Navy Reserve.

Route1 is working with HP Enterprise Services to roll out the DEFIMNET to a limited group of users in Navy Reserve Forces Command over the next six-months, which includes deploying and testing the DEFIMNET. The objective of the pilot is to demonstrate increased flexibility for Navy personnel who require secure access to internal systems and digital resources when physical access to their normal working facilities and equipment is not practical. More than 300,000 potential DEFIMNET users have been identified within the U.S. Navy.

DEFIMNET is an information assurance and service delivery platform designed to reside within all levels of classified and unclassified networks. Built on a foundation of information assurance through identity management and encryption, DEFIMNET allows entitlement-based access to resources, such as C4ISR (Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance) systems, from anywhere and at any time. Personnel can connect to the DEFIMNET using their MobiKEY Fusion identity validation devices that support DoD-issued common access cards (CAC).

"Governments and militaries recognize that the Route1 DEFIMNET provides a unified security construct across a variety of defense platforms," said Tony Busseri, President and Chief Executive Officer, Route1 Inc. "Together with HP, we are looking forward to a successful pilot, which will allow the DEFIMNET platform to become an integral component of the Navy's information assurance objectives."
