Route1 Inc. (TSXV: ROI), a digital security and identity management company whose customers include the U.S. Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Energy and the Government of Canada, today released MobiKEY 4.2. MobiKEY is a complete desktop, secure remote access technology that integrates multi-factor authentication and identity management in a mobile computing environment.

This technology update includes the following feature and security enhancements:

  •     Support for Windows 8 (Basic, Pro and Enterprise)
  •     Mac OS X functionality has been expanded to include remote printing
  •     Security updates
  •     Updated MobiNET Agent for the Host Asset

MobiKEY 4.2 application software will work with both the MobiKEY Classic 2 (MC2) device and MobiKEY Fusion device.

MobiKEY 4.2 Technology Differentiators

  •     Deployment saves the enterprise money; saving more than the investment in MobiKEY for a net cost reduction
  •     Your data stays within your network’s perimeter - not a browser based technology; not a VPN
  •     Hardware and smartcard based, multi-factor authentication
  •     Built with security as the first priority
  •     Integrates seamlessly into your existing IT infrastructure – no (a) capital investment, (b) network changes or reconfiguration, or (c) additional servers, needed or required
  •     Compliment to an enterprise’s virtual desktop infrastructure investment and a path to desktop consolidation

Users of MobiKEY 3.0 or later will be notified directly through their MobiKEY device that a software update is available. When the user accepts the update from any internet-enabled Windows computer, the secure software application update will be performed.

If you are a current subscriber to the MobiKEY technology, this 4.2 software upgrade is available to you at no extra cost. Customers may contact Route1 technical support for instructions by email at support(at)route1(dot)com or by telephone at +1 866-371-1781.
