Route1 Announces Successful Completion of U.S. Navy Reserve DEFIMNET® Pilot Project

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 30, 2010) - Route1 Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ROI) ("Route1" or the "Company"), a digital security and identity management company, today announced the successful completion of the pilot project to deploy the Company's DEFIMNET® platform, TruOFFICE® application software, and MobiKEY Fusion™ devices to the U.S. Navy Reserve Forces Command ("RESFOR"). The MobiKEY Fusion™ device is based on the Giesecke & Devrient StarSign Mobility Token. The project was first announced on March 2, 2010.

The pilot successfully demonstrated increased flexibility for RESFOR personnel who require secure access to internal systems and digital resources when physical access to their normal working facilities and equipment is not possible or practical. There were multiple test scenarios including the ability to access the Navy Marine Corps Intranet ("NMCI") systems and resources from multiple remote locations. Participants used their MobiKEY Fusion™ device from hotels, WIFI hotspots including at 37,000 feet on a commercial airliner, libraries, home and commercial networks.

According to feedback from RESFOR, the pilot project's outcome exceeded expectations.

"The very positive result of this pilot project is a significant step forward for Route1. It strengthens our relationships with the U.S. military and demonstrates the effectiveness of our platforms, software and devices anywhere where high assurance remote access is needed," said Tony Busseri, President and Chief Executive Officer, Route1 Inc. "We look forward to finalizing the terms of procurement with RESFOR, and the Navy as an enterprise, for the use of Route1's solution in a working environment."

"Giesecke & Devrient helps its customers and partners secure their applications by offering a broad portfolio of security solutions. The Mobility Token technology provides a secure remote platform for mobile users. It also corresponds to the stringent demand of the U.S. Navy for their reserve personnel," said Dr. Kai Grassie, Group Senior Vice President and Head of New Business Division of Giesecke & Devrient GmbH in Munich.

The Navy's Designated Accrediting Authority has completed its review of the DEFIMNET® platform and earlier this month provided an interim authority to test ("IATT") for the DEFIMNET® platform. The DEFIMNET® platform has since then been connected to NMCI and a group of RESFOR participants have conducted the pilot project. The RESFOR pilot included the implementation, accreditation for IATT, and deployment on the NMCI network of Route1's DEFIMNET® platform at a U.S. Navy Operations Center. The DEFIMNET® platform is currently configured for 2,500 concurrent users and is scalable to meet the more than 300,000 potential DEFIMNET® users that have been identified within the U.S. Navy.

The Route1 DEFIMNET® platform is an information assurance and service delivery platform that enables high-security remote access to enterprise networks. It is designed to reside within all levels of classified and unclassified networks. Built on a foundation of information assurance through identity management and encryption, the DEFIMNET® platform allows entitlement-based access to resources, such as C4ISR systems, from anywhere and at any time. Personnel are authenticated by the DEFIMNET® platform using their MobiKEY Fusion™ device that supports U.S. Department of Defense-issued common access cards ("CAC").

Route1 TruOFFICE® is secure remote access application software. It uses identity management and entitlement-based access to reliably connect remote users to their workspace (office computer, desktop and digital applications) from any location in the world.

MobiKEY Fusion™ is an identity validation device that supports identity cards such as a CAC. This multi-factor authentication device combines physical possession of the MobiKEY™ and an identity card, with computer and network access. The Route1 MobiKEY Fusion™ device offers all the security features of the Route1 MobiKEY Classic™ device with added factors of authentication to simplify the access component while Route1's MobiNET® or DEFIMNET® platform universally manages the identities of users and entitlement to digital resources. Users can only access systems with a combination of their MobiKEY Fusion™ device, identity or access card and secret password or PIN.
