Ganthet Mobile Licenses Validian's Technology

Validian Earns $400,000 of Initial Revenue in Q4 2016

OTTAWA, November 16, 2016 - Validian Corporation (OTCQB: VLDI; “Validian” or the “Company”), a leading innovator in cyber-security technology, is pleased to announce that Ganthet Mobile Corporation ("Ganthet") has licensed Validian's core cyber security technology, ValidianProtect, and Validian's Secure Capabilities Module, which both have been integrated rapidly into Ganthet's new mobile messaging app. As a result, Validian has earned $400,000 of initial revenue in Q4 2016. Validian also is positioned to earn significant ongoing additional revenue as the number of Validian-enabled endpoints is expected to grow through the anticipated deployment of Ganthet’s messaging app and as Validian's technology is integrated into a suite of additional Ganthet apps.

 After successful evaluation and testing of prior releases of ValidianProtect during product development, Ganthet has chosen to go to market with this latest release in order to leverage Validian's recently completed Secure Capabilities Module and its more than 10 man years of development of significantly extended, first-to-market cyber security features and capabilities. Validian-enabling the Ganthet app makes it ideal for security and privacy conscious enterprise, government and consumer markets.

"In today's mobile marketplace, most mobile messaging platforms have core common features with little real differentiation and marginal security. Even with encryption, there are significant gaps in security and privacy. Validian has provided Ganthet with significant competitive and time-to-market advantages and we are positioned to quickly develop apps with robust cyber security and a rich set of differentiated True Privacy™ focused features", stated Robert Nadon, President of Ganthet Mobile Corporation. "We look forward to unveiling our Ganthet Mobile messaging app as we launch to our marketplace."

Bruce Benn, Chief Executive Officer of Validian, commented, "Ganthet has built a very impressive mobile messaging app that is an excellent showcase of Validian's technology, which promises to obtain traction in the security and privacy conscious enterprise, government and consumer sectors. Ganthet is one of several companies that have installed and successfully tested Validian's technology during the past 2 to 3 years. We look forward to announcing more revenue generating transactions for these companies during the rest of 2016 as well as during 2017."
