M-Tech and AK Systems Extend Value Proposition to New Markets

Active Managed Service Provider Experiences Expanded Opportunities with M-Tech's Identity Management Solutions

Calgary, AB - June 1, 2005 - M-Tech Information Technology, Inc., a leading provider of identity management (IdM) solutions, today announced that it has formed a strategic partnership with AK Systems, an active managed service provider (MSP) specializing in network security.

AK Systems offers turn-key IT consulting services to medium and large size enterprises in various security areas such as identity management and authentication, regulatory compliance and cryptography.

AK Systems evaluated M-Tech's solutions as part of their effort to find an identity management software provider whose solutions are easily managed, rapidly deployed and allow an ongoing low cost of ownership. M-Tech's IdM solutions will enable AK Systems to provide their clients with a greater range of products and services while reducing costs.

"M-Tech offers solutions that lower the total cost of ownership, while reducing the complexity of deployment and generating a rapid ROI," says BJ Jhaveri, Senior Manager, AK Systems. "As a result, we are now able to provide competitive identity management services to our customers at a significantly lower cost."

Through this partnership, M-Tech now has the opportunity to leverage AK System's existing relationships with government agencies, public sector organizations and medium to large sized businesses. For instance, AK Systems is ideally positioned to provide services to clients in New York's financial district. These corporate clients can now address their regulatory compliance requirements using M-Tech's IdM solutions. Similarly, AK Systems is targeting the health-care sector in the Mid-Atlantic and New England areas by addressing HIPAA patient privacy protection requirements using M-Tech's solutions.

"AK Systems aggressively delivers solutions to medium and large organizations. Our partnership with AK Systems offers opportunities to expand our already dominant position in the MSP market," says Richard Darrell, M-Tech's Vice President, Channel and Managed Services Sales.
