By Canadian SecurityNews Data Security
Toronto-based Route1 Inc., a security and identity management company, announced that it has received a second purchase order from a component of the United States Department of Defense.
This purchase order is for an additional 2,000 MobiKEY Fusion devices and 4,000 MobiKEY subscriptions covering the service period April 1, 2013 to March 31, 2014. The company expects to ship the additional 2,000 MobiKEY Fusion devices during the fourth quarter of 2012.
This award follows on the Nov. 13, 2012 announced purchase order covering the service period Dec. 1, 2012 to March 31, 2013. The gross value of the new purchase order is approximately US$2 million.
As of April 1, 2013, the client’s users will be provisioned on their own identity and access management platform, a DEFIMNET. The DEFIMNET will be hosted at a secure client hosting facility.
“Not only do we have a highly respected military organization using our technology because of its strong data security architecture,” said Brian Brunetti, president, Route1 Inc., in a statement, “but the decision is also being driven by the real cost savings the client will benefit from as many of the user’s turn in their enterprise issued laptop. Users will now only need to use their CAC card, MobiKEY Fusion device and any Internet-connected personal device or other computer to have a secure, remote access session.”
