Digital Security Company Route1 Releases MobiKEY for the iPad

Toronto, Canada-based digital security and identity management company Route1 Inc. has announced the immediate availability of the MobiKEY technology for the Apple’s iPad. It is a complete desktop, secure remote access technology that integrates multi-factor authentication and identity management in a mobile computing environment. Route1’s customers include the U.S. Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Energy and the Government of Canada.

Key features of MobiKEY include compatibility with iOS, Mac OS X, and Windows, cross domain technology (host assets can be on any domain or network), elimination of administrator privileges on the Remote asset, no end-point security, availability of registration and deployment tools, integration with active directory including virtual desktop infrastructure, and connection history details for auditing and reporting purposes.

For security, it includes multi-factor authentication, 1024- to 4096-bit asymmetric keys, TLS1.1, PKI based technology (access and authorization) management and resistance to malware. Plus, it ensures that the Remote asset does not become a node on the enterprise network.

According to Route1, MobiKEY subscribers will now be able to use the security software on an Apple iPad running iOS 5 and higher. The MobiKEY technology includes the use of both Route1's universal identity management and service delivery platform and MobiKEY application software.

The company said that current subscribers of the MobiKEY technology can update the software for the iPad at no additional cost.

Late last month, the company announced that the U.S. Navy has notified HP that an Authorization to Operate (ATO) was recently granted for the "Unclassified DEFIMNET MobiKEY Secure Remote Access Solution" on the unclassified NMCI Enterprise. This ATO authorizes NMCI and Washington Headquarters Services users to utilize the "Unclassified DEFIMNET MobiKEY Secure Remote Access Solution."

Under the terms of a previously announced agreement, Route1 sells its integrated security and identity management solution through HP to the U.S. Navy to meet the need for universal, secure remote access to its digital resources and sensitive data.
