TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 12, 2015) - Route1 Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ROI) (the "Company" or "Route1"), a leading provider of secure access technologies for the mobile workspace to protect businesses and government agencies, today raised the industry standard with the announcement of the commercial release of MobiKEY 5.0, the latest version of its flagship technology.

MobiKEY 5.0 is a mobile access solution that uses comprehensive multi-factor authentication and identity management to securely connect an organization's digital assets with its employees, mobile workers, and contractors.

"Today's MobiKEY 5.0 release delivers outstanding new functionality to our customers," said Yamian Quintero, CTO of Route1. "As we continue to evolve MobiKEY, one of our goals is to grow the ways mobile workers can use MobiKEY. The functionality now available in MobiKEY 5.0 opens up a number of new use cases for our clients including, offline capabilities with Secure Storage and removing the dependency on the remote asset's operating system by using Bootable MobiKEY".

MobiKEY 5.0 delivers significant new functionality, specifically:

Policy Options
Bootable MobiKEY. A security feature built into the MobiKEY Fusion3 and MobiKEY Classic 3 (MC3) devices that provide the user the option to boot from the MobiKEY device, thus bypassing the remote asset's existing operating system.
Secure Storage. Provides an encrypted partition available for secure file storage on the MobiKEY Fusion3 and MC3 devices, encrypted to the user's PIV, CAC or embedded smart card. The encrypted partition only becomes accessible after successful authentication.
Linux support for remote assets using the MobiKEY Fusion3 and MC3 devices. Linux operating systems now supported for remote assets include: Mint, Fedora, Ubuntu and CentOS.
Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan support for remote assets. Mac OS X operating systems now supported by MobiKEY for remote assets include: 10.7 Lion, 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.9 Mavericks, 10.10 Yosemite and 10.11 El Capitan.
Windows 10 support for remote assets. Windows operating systems now supported by MobiKEY for remote assets include: Windows XP - 32 bit, Windows Vista - 32 and 64 bit, Windows 7, 8.0, 8.1 and 10 - 32 and 64 bit.
Windows 10 support for host assets. Windows operating systems now supported by MobiKEY for host assets include: Windows Vista - 32 and 64 bit, Windows 7, 8.1 and 10 - 32 and 64 bit, Windows Server 2008 R2 - 64 bit, Windows Server 2012 R2 - 64 bit.
Added remote audio support for users connecting from remote assets using Mac OS X 10.10 or higher Mac OS X operating systems to host assets with the MobiNET Agent software version 5.0 installed. Remote audio support was first promoted for MobiKEY 4.4 users connecting from a Windows remote asset.
Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) support. IPv6 is the most recent version of the Internet Protocol, the communications protocol that provides an identification and location system for computers on networks and routes traffic across the Internet.

Users of MobiKEY will be notified directly through their MobiKEY device that a software update is available. Upon user acceptance, the secure software application update will be performed.

Current subscribers to the MobiKEY technology can receive the 5.0 software upgrade at no extra cost. Customers may contact Route1 technical support for instructions by email at or by telephone at +1 866-371-1781.
