The US Marine Corps (USMC) started testing the MobiKEY technology in November 2015.  In January 2017, in accordance with the US Department of Defense (DoD) Risk Management Framework (RMF), an Authority to Operate and Authority to Connect was issued by the USMC, authorizing Route1’s MobiKEY technology for the Marine Corps enterprise network.  The MobiKEY technology is now available on an enterprise-wide contract vehicle that allows all components of the USMC to procure MobiKEY.  Route1 expects sales in the first ninety days of 100-250 users and additional further growth on a monthly basis similar to the Company’s experience with the US Department of the Navy.

The USMC will be leveraging the DEFIMNET platform hosted by the DoD Joint Service Provider (JSP).  In February 2017, in accordance with the DoD RMF, an Authority to Operate was issued for Route1’s MobiKEY technology, including the DEFIMNET hosted by JSP.  The DEFIMNET is a universal identity management and service delivery platform that confirms the identities of individual users and their entitlement to access specific applications, data or resources.
