TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 15, 2012) - Route1 Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ROI), a security and identity management company, today issued a letter to Route1 MobiKEY Users from the Company's CEO, Tony Busseri to address the recent online article by AOL Defense.
Dear MobiKEY Users,
Since joining Route1, I have focused our team's efforts on executing our business plan. As a result, Route1 is on a path of accelerated growth and is working with corner stone accounts such as the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. In addition, as I mentioned in the most recent earnings release, we are building a significant base of potential business and developing new applications that we believe will add to profitability in the future.
Unfortunately, in the modern age of the Internet, online publications allow for the rapid and broad dissemination of information on companies whether the information is factual or misleading. Last week, I was quoted in an AOL Defense article online, where Route1's technology was explained. In light of the recent activity and concerns, I believe it is important to set the record straight about Route1 regarding our technology and exactly how our security and identity management products and services provide the highest level of remote access security on the market today.
What has been misrepresented goes to the heart of our technology. Route1's technology is patented (U.S. Patents 7,739,726 and 7,814,216) and is proven to "let federal workers telecommute securely using ordinary computers and mobile devices, not just specially lobotomized ones1". A key part of a Route1 delivered secure remote access session is that the enterprise's data is not allowed to exit the enterprise's network, and thus advance beyond the confines of the enterprise's firewall(s) which are built to protect the data. We call that 'protecting the fortress'.
Whether or not a teleworker is using a personal device or an enterprise computer makes absolutely no difference to us. With Route1's solution, what is essentially happening is the host computer is sending encrypted screen shots to the mobile device; be it laptop, tablet, or other similar devices, and the mobile device or guest computer keystrokes and mouse movements are being sent encrypted back to the host computer to be effected on the host computer. As a direct result of Route1's solution architecture, data on the mobile device can NOT be mixed with the enterprise's data.
The final result being that it is impossible for a hacker to piggy-back a Route1 connection or penetrate an enterprise's firewall during a Route1 data session. The data is completely secure.
That is the Route1 difference. We always put security first by protecting the fortress.
