Leonovus Awarded Government of Canada Standing Offer for its Hyper-Secure File Transfer Solution

OTTAWA, March 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Leonovus (LTV: TSXV) is pleased to announce the award of a Standing Offer contract to supply the Government of Canada (GoC) with a 'Next Generation Litigation Software - Secure File Transfer Solution.'

Leonovus Vault, Smart Filer and XVault technology are the foundation technologies used to build this new hyper-secure file sharing, file transfer and file storage solution called Torozo, which will also launch as a Software as a Service available to individuals, businesses, and enterprises soon.

"A key corporate objective, for the past four years, was to develop and deploy secure file sharing, data management, and data storage solutions for the Government of Canada. This Standing Offer provides a process to sell a secure data transfer solution to any government department through defined pricing and proof of concept to validate and obtain future call-ups," said Michael Gaffney, Chair and CEO.

The next phase is completing the final 'in-production' testing of the functional specifications, achieving all data and personnel security requirements, completing ISO and SOC certifications for the Department of Justice and Shared Services Canada, anticipating a call-up.

Leonovus' Torozo product is an Ultra-Simple, Ultra-Secure file sharing, file transfer and file storage solution and a subsegment of the quarter-trillion-dollar cloud data storage market. Torozo's Secure File Sharing Market segment has a CAGR of 25% and is growing to $4+ billion by 2025. Torozo supports individual, business, and enterprise customers.

"There are numerous economic drivers that support our product vision and its benefits. In March 2021, Shared Services Canada and the Department of Justice issued an RFP with the essential requirement being secure file sharing within and outside the government. We believe that this is a general requirement for many government departments, federal and local, and the private sector. The pandemic increased the need for secure work-at-home solutions. Sharing, storing, and transferring medical records, mergers and acquisitions, financings, non-fungible tokens, and cryptocurrency backups are other large market segments. Torozo will solve many other secure data sharing, transfer, and storage needs," said Gaffney.
