U.S. Navy Begins Roll-Out of Route1's Secure Remote Access and Identity Assurance Solutions

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 25, 2011) - Route1, Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ROI) ("Route1" or the "Company"), a security and identity management company, today announced that the United States (U.S.) Navy has ordered 1,206 subscriptions of its comprehensive solutions, which are in this process of being provisioned. This deployment for the U.S. Navy is comprised of Route1's private communications and service delivery platform, the DEFIMNET, its TruOFFICE application software, and its MobiKEY Fusion device.

"We are very pleased with the continued interest and procurement of Route1's proven security and identity assurance solutions across the U.S. Navy, and are honored to answer the call for secure remote access and identity management from this branch of the U.S. military," said Tony Busseri, CEO, Route1, Inc. "Our solutions portfolio is unique as it combines leading-edge cryptographic technology with a simple view of data security. We believe that secure remote access is best delivered by keeping the data inside the "fortress" and by first identifying the actual user, not the user's computer. Route1 is proud to count the U.S. Navy among the myriad government and multinational enterprises around the world that Route1 helps to defend against data leaks and security breaches, while reducing costs to provide remote access functionality."

The Company expects the U.S. Navy's usage of the Route1 Solution to continue to expand and expects the maximum number of permissible TruOFFICE application software licenses and associated users registered with the DEFIMNET platform of 5,000, to be procured and provisioned during the fourth quarter of the current calendar year. These 5,000 members of the U.S. Navy will be empowered to access their digital resources remotely without risk of their data being compromised.

Mr. Busseri continued, "This agreement and the related start of procurement represents another significant milestone for Route1 and further proof that we are successfully executing our strategy of empowering large-scale organizations to provide their user's with the requisite tools to engage anywhere, at anytime, while knowing the security of their data will not be compromised. Based on continued demand from the U.S. Navy for our secure remote access solution, we anticipate there will be demand that is greater than the 5,000 subscribers that the current DEFIMNET can support. As such, we continue to work closely with our outside contractor to ensure the Company can address any and all demand from the U.S. Navy. We remain optimistic about Route 1's potential and see significant opportunities for our Company in the year ahead."

Under the terms of the June 2011 agreement between the outside contractor with which Route1 has secured this order, Route1 is selling its integrated security and identity management solutions to the outside contractor, which is reselling the Route1 Solution to the U.S. Navy to address the need for universal, secure remote access to digital resources and sensitive data.
