Maxis is gearing up to capitalise on heightened demand for managed network and security services in Malaysia following the acquisition of MyKRIS Asia, billed as the “largest” yet by the technology giant.

Terms of the deal — which could rise up to RM157.5 million (S$51 million) — will see Maxis take control of a managed service provider (MSP) housing “end-to-end” field delivery and support capabilities, supported by a talent pool of experts comprising 70 qualified engineers and support team members.

Operating as the main operating subsidiary of MyKRIS International Berhad — a holding company listed on the Bursa LEAP market — MyKRIS Asia is expected to strengthen digital transformation offerings aligned to the Maxis Programmable Network, spanning private network to 5G fixed wireless access.

“Our latest acquisition reinforces Maxis’ position as the leading converged solutions provider in Malaysia,” said Gokhan Ogut, CEO of Maxis. “Importantly, it represents our commitment to investing in the nation and supporting the digital economy.”

According to Paul McManus — chief enterprise business officer of Maxis — managed network and security services represent “vital components” of digital transformation strategies, providing the connectivity and protection capabilities for organisations to innovate at scale.

“With MyKRIS Asia coming onboard, we look forward to expanding our suite of network solutions and technical capabilities built on top of our best-in-class Maxis Programmable Network,” McManus outlined.
