TIME Powers HITB Security Conference with 500Mbps Internet Speeds
TIME dotCom Bhd (“TIME” or “The Group”) will supply Internet speeds of 500Mbps to the Hack in The Box Security Conference 2012 (HITBSecConf2012) from 8 to 11 October, allowing conference participants to seamlessly showcase the latest in online security, data and encryption techniques. The connection would be a dedicated link direct to the global internet exchanges powered by TIME’s 100% Fibre Optic Network giving participants the fastest ever Internet access in Malaysia. It’s first of its kind for any HITB event.
Over a thousand hackers, developers, security professionals and tech enthusiasts from across the globe are expected to descend on KL for this landmark conference. Expected to be the biggest turnout to-date, HITBSecConf2012 will commemorate ten years of hosting the best minds that have helped shape the global security landscape.
“Since this is a geekfest of the highest degree, it is only right that the geekiest data provider should provide the pipes,” said TIME CEO Afzal Abdul Rahim. “500Mbps dedicated link is a crazy speed, never before seen in any conference in Malaysia, but I fully expect the participants to redline our pipes all four days.”
As the official Internet connectivity sponsor, TIME will provide seamless Internet connectivity and almost unlimited scalability for the conference’s unique events such as the HackWEEKDAY, a 36-hour hackathon and Capture the Flag, a virtual, 32-hour nonstop competition.
“These are the guys that make our Internet safer and also push the limits of any technology,” Afzal added. “With 500Mbps to boost them in the right direction who knows what more might be achieved during these four days?”
TIME, which recently launched its 100Mbps broadband service for Malaysian homes, regularly breaks Internet speed records in the country, reflecting the stability, reliability and strength of its 100% fibre network.
“We are definitely looking forward to experiencing what 500Mbps of ‘fiber Internet goodness’ feels like and we’re extremely grateful for TIME’s support in not only joining us for this 10th year celebration but for also bringing this fastest internet experience to the Malaysian public!”, said Dhillon Andrew Kannabhiran, Founder and Chief Executive Officer for Hack In The Box
“I think most Malaysians haven’t even experienced what 10% of 500Mbps is like and with so much bandwidth on tap, this is certainly a good a time as any for attendees and the general public to also grab the latest software updates and security patches for their systems”, he added
A truly technical and deep-knowledge event, HITBSecConf2012 will enable participants to learn first-hand about security threats in today’s super-connected world and act as a platform to enable dissemination, discussion and sharing of critical network security information.
