Secure access technology vendor Route1 Inc. has added support for the Android OS to MobiKey, its secure mobile access solution for businesses that need to control access to their sensitive information.
Toronto-based Route1’s customers include government agencies such as the U.S. Department of Defence and the Government of Canada, as well as businesses in sensitive industries such as finance. Its MobiKey solution allows mobile access to corporate networks using multi-factor authentication and identity management.
With the new MobiKey support for Android, users with a Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 or Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 will be able to use their tablets with their MobiKey to access employee files and networks.
“The MobiKey solution empowers team members to use their own devices without introducing risks to your network or destabilizing your infrastructure. With MobiKey, no data is stored or cached on any remote device — all data stays within the confines of the organization’s network. In fact, remote assets do not even become part of the network, effectively negating the risk of malware and virus propagation and eliminating the need for end point protection,” said Route1’s president, Brian Brunetti, in a statement. “Further, MobiKey, powered by MobiKey’s PKI-based identity validation service, seamlessly integrates with your existing infrastructure. It fully supports virtualized environments, such as VMware & Citrix, and integrates with Active Directory.”
Current MobiKey subscribers get access to the MobiKey for Android technology at no additional cost.
