U.S. Department of Homeland Security Renews 6,613 Route1 TruOFFICE Subscriptions and Maintenance Agreement

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 19, 2010) - Route1 Inc. (Route1 or the Company) (TSX VENTURE:ROI) a security and identity management company, today provided an update on the use of its secure remote access solution for information assurance by the U.S. Government's Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection (CBP). 

Route1 has received two purchase orders from a U.S. based provider of telecommunication and data communication products, services, systems, and solutions for the U.S. Federal Government (the Reseller) under the terms of a non-exclusive supplier agreement. The first purchase order is for the TruOFFICE software renewal of CBP's 6,613 subscribers through April 30, 2011. The second purchase order is for the annual renewal of their DEFIMNET™ maintenance services agreement. The maintenance contract runs through April 24, 2011.

In addition, after a visit to a NASA space centre that houses CBP's DEFIMNET™ last week, Route1 has now principally completed all of the DEFIMNET™ integration tasks and is working with CBP to migrate their remaining users currently operating on the Route1 MobiNET to CBP's DEFIMNET™.

"The Route1 team has worked very hard to turn around early implementation challenges and is now working with CBP to expand its DEFIMNET capacity and increase the number of CBP personnel using their DEFIMNET," said Tony Busseri, President and CEO of Route1. "It has been a pleasure to work with a progressive and committed team at CBP led by Mr. Ken Ritchhart, Deputy CIO at CBP, to implement a best in class secure remote access solution."
