Hull-based Shield Security has announced it has extended its IT contract with an East Yorkshire firm for a further five years, securing a 15-year-long relationship.
The deal means Shield, a name which is trusted by some of the region’s biggest businesses, will become Hessle-headquartered Jupiter IT’s longest-serving client.
Phil Mackay, director at Shield Security, said of the new contract: “We strive to create safer environments and that’s down to the bespoke, responsive and personalised services.
“To be able to do so, you need to trust core business functions are taken care of, that is something we’ve always felt Jupiter have done proactively with our IT.
“Ultimately, it means we can focus on our business and continually improving the services we offer without the worry of our IT.”
Dan Gladstone, director at Jupiter IT, said: “Ultimately, we’ve always been service driven – it’s engrained in our values to do the best for them, ethically and with transparency – and I think that’s testament to the confidence Shield have in us to be their chosen partner for the next five years.
“It’s more than supporting their current systems – we strive to keep everything our clients’ work hard for safe and secure from the many threats out there.
“We feel privileged and are grateful to Phil and his team for having the confidence in us to continue supporting them – as they grow and continually improve, we face new challenges that help us improve, too.”
Jupiter IT was launched in 2007 by three IT consultants from the NHS.
