TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct 1, 2015) - Route1 Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ROI) (the "Company" or "Route1"), a leading provider of secure access technologies for the mobile workspace that protects businesses and government agencies, and whose customers include the U.S. Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Commerce and the Government of Canada, today announced that it has entered into a services agreement with Fasken Martineau to provide 100 of their Canadian based legal professionals with the MobiKEY technology.
MobiKEY is a mobile access solution that uses comprehensive multi-factor authentication and identity management to securely connect an organization's assets with its employees, mobile workers, and contractors.
"An increasingly mobile work force presents massive risks to confidential or sensitive client and enterprise information. Mobile devices - tablets or laptops, whether enterprise-issued or employee-owned that are not utilizing the correct security technology are one of the biggest reasons for the countless data breaches we see today. If data is stored on a mobile device, it will most likely be compromised when that device is lost or stolen. Additionally, introduction of malware to an enterprise's network is also a strong possibility when mobile devices connect remotely as nodes, such as through a VPN or a browser," stated Brian Brunetti, President of Route1.
MobiKEY means freedom for Fasken Martineau's team members, when using the technology, to remotely connect to their firm's assets with zero change to their workspace environment. MobiKEY also means Fasken Martineau's legal professionals can enjoy robust secure mobile access without compromising the firm's integrity - protecting against malware, data spillage and network breaches.
Mr. Brunetti continued, "Route1 believes Fasken Martineau's decision to adopt the MobiKEY technology will enable the firm to distinguish itself from its peers. We know that Fasken Martineau's clients, like any other law firm's clients, hold their service provider accountable for zero data loss making the issue of data integrity and security not a technology one, rather a business leadership strategic imperative."
"Fasken Martineau is constantly evaluating new and different solutions to stay at the forefront of data protection for the benefit of our clients. We are pleased to have found a product that we believe provides the security necessary to do just that and look forward to working with Route1," said Marc Prémont, Chief Technology Officer, Fasken Martineau.
