In an effort to make remote data access more secure, the digital security and identity management firm, Route1 Inc., a digital security and identity management company, has developed a smartcard embedded device called MobiKEY Classic 2 (MC2).
According to the company, MC2 is the world’s first SMART device, capable of running on both Mac OS X and Windows machines and devices.
MC2 allows subscribers to remotely access their office computer, network and other digital resources from anywhere at any time. Available to private enterprises, the MC2 does not require any pre-installed software to work on a guest computer or other remote device.
The device is slim, sleek and pocketsize – an ideal solution for the budget-conscious.
Route 1’s security and identity management solutions are trusted by the enterprises, government and military all over the world for secure access to all digital resources and sensitive data. Powered by MobiNET, Route1’s communications and service delivery platform, Route1’s patented solutions provide identity assurance and individualized access to networks and data.
Based on FIPS 140-2 cryptographic modules, these solutions have been designed to simplify the process of meeting increasingly stringent regulatory requirements for privacy and security.
The Toronto-based company’s clients include the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Department of Energy (DoE), the Department of the Interior (DoI) and the Canadian Government.
“We began using MobiKEY for the high level of security in delivering remote access. We kept using it because of its simplicity; just plug it in to whatever machine you’re sitting in front of, and you''re ready to go,” Anthony Juliano, CTO and General Partner of Landmark Ventures, said in a statement. “With MC2, we still have the same level of security and simplicity, and can now truly be used at nearly any computer immediately and easily.”
“The MC2 sets a new standard for secure, remote access; it is unlike other portable devices, such as encrypted USB memory sticks, tablets or laptops, which can be used to store sensitive enterprise data and can easily put organizations at risk,” said Tony Busseri, CEO at Route1. “Without exception, the MC2 stands alone as the sole smart product supporting both Mac OS X and Windows users.”
Last month, Route1 announced its financial results for the three- and six-month periods ending June 30, 2012. Total revenue for the second quarter ending June 30, 2012 increased to more than $1.9 million from $1.2 million in the second quarter of 2011. Cost of revenue decreased during the quarter due to decreasing royalties on licenses and reduced expenses as a result of lower sales of MobiKEY devices.
Gross profit increased to $1.7 million in the second quarter of 2012 from $1.0 million in same quarter of 2011.
