Route1 Launches DerivID - A New Standard in Secure Mobile User Identity Validation

Innovative offering provides derived credentials for government-issued PIV and CAC cards

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 6, 2016) - Route1 Inc. (OTCQB:ROIUF)(TSX VENTURE:ROI) (the Company or Route1), a world-leader in secure data protection technologies and user authentication for government and enterprise, today announced the launch of DerivID, an industry first derived credential solution for personal identity verification (PIV) and Common Access Card (CAC) users that validates the identity of mobile users seamlessly, simply and securely. DerivID exceeds U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) security standards, and eliminates the need for an external card reader.

Developed in direct response to feedback from Route1's U.S. military and civilian government accounts, DerivID is a best-in-class solution for validating the identity of mobile government employees who need to securely access networks and applications, digitally sign documents and more. Part of the Route1 suite of patented security solutions, DerivID leverages deployed and fully accredited infrastructures (DEFIMNETs) that are available to both the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and civilian government, ensuring that the technology can be seamlessly deployed and scaled. The solution exceeds the highest federal security requirements and incorporates two-factor authentication, all at a lower cost than competitive offerings. It supports multiple user credentials per mobile device and supports unique credentials for a user's multiple devices.

Brian Brunetti, President of Route1 Inc., commented on today's news, "DerivID furthers Route1's objective of providing best-in-class technology solutions that enable productive and flexible workforces without compromising the integrity of sensitive data or organizational networks, and represents the gold standard in mobile user identity validation. As with our other technology offerings, DerivID exceeds federal security standards and is simple to deploy and scale."

Unlike other derived credentials solutions, DerivID eliminates vulnerabilities associated with brute force attacks, including dictionary attacks. It also enables the detection and prevention of multiple sign-in attempts. DerivID is designed to integrate and actively function with multiple Certificate Authorities on the Federal Bridge, and integrates seamlessly with leading MDM and EMM providers. The solution is ideal for government and military decision makers including CISOs, IAOs, and Enterprise mobility executives. Additional, key benefits of the DerivID solution include:
