As soon as we saw a demonstration of MHI’s new technology we were inspired to bring this across to the Asian marketplace

Network Infrastructure provider, ACN, will introduce new, patented Internet communications solutions to its portfolio.

UK-based MHI has today announced a 5 year OEM agreement with Kuala Lumpur-based provider ACN. ACN currently offers a range of fibre-optic, wireless, Internet, IP telephony and telecoms solutions and MHI’s Secure Communications Suite will be integrated with immediate effect.

MHI’s patented Secure Communications Suite is designed to secure communication between services and users. The solutions are device and protocol agnostic, require no certificates or tokens, are compatible with legacy infrastructure and are designed to support any service from online banking to cloud services.

Commenting on ACN’s appointment, MHI’s Chief Scientific Officer, Mike Hawkes: “We are very excited with the prospect of integrating our solutions with ACN’s portfolio as it is a very logical fit. Our solutions will help many organisations looking to secure their network communications with a simple, strong and cost-effective solution.”

Anthony Suppiah from ACN, “As soon as we saw a demonstration of MHI’s new technology we were inspired to bring this across to the Asian marketplace. The significance of being able to offer a complete, end-to-end, simple, low-cost solution to managing security should not be underestimated.”

ACN will be one of the key sponsors at the Cyber Security for Government Asia conference, to be held on 29-30 January 2013, at the Novotel Hotel, Kuala Lumpur City Centre, where the solutions will be demonstrated. Mike Hawkes from MHI will also be speaking at the conference on 29 January 2013.


Editors Notes:

MHI Hawk is the underlying platform that secures any communication between users and services regardless of the device used. Hawk works without certificates, tokens or any other complex mechanisms and is so flexible that it can work with any legacy equipment or infrastructure.

MHI Eagle is a unique picture based login method making it stronger than standard 2-factor authentication and removes the need for any form of tokens or secondary device. This generates an extremely long, one-time passcode that is immune to man-in-the-middle, keystroke or screen logging and it prevents most social engineering scams or shoulder surfing exploits.

MHI Merlin is MHI’s own Patented Stream Cipher that uses standard hardware and is up to 10 times faster than AES 256 bit encryption running on similar equipment. Merlin is non-algorithmic and therefore is not susceptible to algorithmic encryption cracking techniques.

Photography is available to accompany this release and MHI will offer demonstrations of the service at any time.
