Adelaide-based communications specialist MIMP connecting solutions has started its 30th year in business on a roll, after doubling in size during the past two years.
Established in 1985, the privately owned company has doubled its headcount to nearly 30 employees since 2013, driven by strong demand for its expertise in installing and maintaining wireless networks.
With its head office in Richmond, MIMP has undertaken ground-breaking projects throughout Australia including Adelaide’s first Internet-enabled buses; building a multicast mesh wireless network to make Darwin’s streets safer; and deploying a 480km wireless network in regional Queensland. MIMP has also actively worked to link up remote SA communities such as Arkaroola.

Driven by surging international demand, the Australian-owned SecuraLive antivirus brand today unveils a major extension of its product range to protect Windows PCs, Macs and even VPNs.
SecuraLive, which is owned by Adelaide-based PCRange, has notched up strong international sales since it was launched in June last year, including major contracts in the US and Asia.
This week at CeBIT in Sydney, where PCRange is an exhibitor, SecuraLive will display a new version of its SecuraLive AntiVirus scanning engine, an overhauled user interface, a brand new VPN (Virtual Private Network) product and the launch of Mac versions of SecuraLive. More details are available at www.securalive.com.
PCRange CEO Raaj Menon said the strong overseas demand was from companies wanting to re-badge SecuraLive. “We’re signing deals worth hundreds of thousands of dollars a year to white label SecuraLive,” he said.
An historic Adelaide mansion has undergone a multi-million-dollar metamorphosis that has transformed the heritage-listed 19th century pile into a 21st century landmark.
The property - formerly housing the Parkin Theological College and Pepper Studios - is a distinctive visual and historic element in Kent Town, a fringe suburb east of Adelaide’s CBD.
Constructed in 1865 of bluestone and sandstone rubble with brick quoins, the original two-storey building contains picturesque detailing with a facade of profiled brick, scalloped barges and a cantilevered balcony.
When Adelaide-based technology entrepreneur Simon Hackett paid $3.5 million for the property in 2012, he decided to restore it to its former glory while bringing it aesthetically, structurally and functionally into the 21st century.
“It is such a beautiful property that had been extended and maintained quite haphazardly over the years,” said Simon. “We wanted these renovations to make this an Adelaide landmark building for the next 100 years.”
Centrify overnight announced the launch of Centrify Privilege Service (CPS), the industry’s first cloud-based identity management solution to provide security, visibility and control of privileged accounts.
Essentially “the keys to the kingdom,” privileged accounts provide elevated access to an organisation’s most critical data, applications, systems and network devices. As more enterprises embrace the cloud, privileged accounts increasingly lie outside the corporate perimeter and are frequently shared by both internal IT and often remote third parties such as contractors and vendors.
Thus, it’s no surprise that privileged accounts are top targets for hackers and malicious insiders alike.
