TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 11, 2012) - Route1 Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ROI), a security and identity management company, today announced that it would showcase MobiKEY from Booth #413 at the upcoming GTEC 2012 conference in Ottawa, Canada, and Booth #T4 at the upcoming AFCEA TechNet Asia-Pacific 2012 conference to Honolulu, Hawaii. MobiKEY provides multi-factor authentication to ensure the identity of an individual attempting to remotely access data.
The MobiKEY is a breakthrough in security for both Mac OS X and Windows based operating system users. It's a simple equation; as users leave no data footprint on the remote computer, they not only safeguard their privacy, but also mitigate any risk of cyber attack from any potential security breach.
Route1's civilian and military government customers and enterprise clients use MobiKEY because:
- It offers remote users the same working experience that they have at their office;
- There is no capital investment required;
- Data stays within your network's perimeter and firewall;
- There is seamless integration; no network changes or reconfiguration required;
- No additional servers needed;
- It is bandwidth efficient - 20 kbps average bandwidth usage per connected user;
- No software installation or administrator privileges are required on the remote device;
- It incorporates hardware and smart-card based multifactor authentication;
- No data cache or footprint left on remote PC or Mac; and
- Cost effective.
True, multi-factor authentication provides an easy-to-use method to authorize users. MobiKEY utilizes a patented communications and service delivery platform that is based on FIPS 140-2 Level 3 cryptographic modules, and simplifies the process of meeting stringent regulatory requirements for privacy and security. Accordingly, the MobiKEY device is the "something you have", while the password, which is verified against both the smartcard and the communications service delivery platform, is the "something you know".
If the MobiKEY device is lost or stolen, enterprise networks cannot be compromised as no data is stored, downloaded or saved on the MobiKEY.
Privacy by Design Ambassador
The Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario earlier this week designated Route1 as a Privacy by Design Ambassador for its commitment to secure remote access and identity management, evidenced in the development and success of the MobiKEY.
Privacy by Design, recently included by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission as one of its three recommended practices for protecting online privacy, is a framework developed by Dr. Ann Cavoukian, Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario, Canada, to promote the philosophy of embedding privacy proactively in technology itself. MobiKEY's core design elements mirror this philosophy as it is the only device that allows data to be accessed remotely without pulling it beyond an organization's network, thus ensuring the user privacy and data security.
