Receiving an APICTA award

Had the pleasure of being presented a Merit Award by the Prince of Brunei this week at the 2012 Asia Pacific ICT Alliance ceremony (well actually it was our ACM5500 that was given the award – not me :) ). The APICTA event recognizes the best in innovation from across the Asia Pacific ICT community and it was great meeting up with so many innovators and entrepreneurs from the region .

However my real APICTA surprise came the following morning when the event featured
as front page news on the Brunei Times… and the article included a photo of myself and other Australian nominees with a tagline identifying us as judges!

And while I was honored, I should highlight this was an innocent case of mistaken identity and I had no role in judging our product’s merit. Also mistaken identities are rarely associated with our ACM5500 as it abounds with identity authentication features (RSA SecurID, RADIUS, TACACS+/LDAP/Active Directory et al).
