Media Advisory: Route1 Presents Eco-Friendly Telework Solution at GSA Conference

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 11, 2009) -

ATTENTION TECHNOLOGY EDITORS

Route1 Inc., (TSX VENTURE:ROI) a security and identity-based services company will present, Secure Teleworking: Saving Time, Money and the Environment, on a panel today at the U.S. General Services Administration's 2009 Network Services Conference in Chicago, Illinois.

Teleworking has been a growing trend with proven economical and environmental benefits. The introduction of the Telework Improvement Act of 2009 in the U.S. House of Representatives has enabled federal employees who are eligible to telework to do so for at least 20 percent of the hours they work in a two week period.

Federal agencies and private sector enterprises often lack the enabling technologies that protect and control access to enterprise information and systems in order to limit the introduction of vulnerabilities and to safeguard wireless and other telecommunications capabilities that are used for teleworking.

Route1 Director of Business Solutions, Raj Atwal will address the challenges of enabling telework including the need to ensure that employees are able to access the resources that they require, safely and securely, from anywhere at any time, as if they never left the office. Mr. Atwal will also outline the benefits of teleworking including the proven increase in productivity, improvement in quality of life, cost savings in equipment and management, relief on transportation infrastructures and decrease in environmental impact.

The presentation will demonstrate how secure teleworking provides a critical framework for continuity of operations planning (COOP), so that mission critical personnel are equipped to telework in the event of an emergency like illness, transit disruption, natural disaster or pandemic. With secure teleworking, individuals are practicing their continuity plans even before catastrophe strikes, which can minimize downtime for an organization.

Route1 is exhibiting its identity-based solutions and demonstrating the MobiKEY Fusion, an identity validation device that enables government and military personnel to securely access and interact with their digital resources from anywhere, at any time, in the Qwest Government Services Booth #411 from August 10 to 13, 2009.
