New base in Hull for IT support activities | Yorkshire Business News
An IT support company has moved to new premises in Hull to support its growth in the cybersecurity market.
Relocating Jupiter IT to a site at Priory Park in Hull has allowed the company to more than double its capacity to host cybersecurity training.
Overall, the purchase of the two-storey Jupiter House in Henry Boot Way quadruples the space of its former premises next to the A63 in Hessle.
Dan Gladstone, Managing Partner at Jupiter IT, said, “Cybersecurity was a huge factor in our move to Hessle in 2018. We gave ourselves the space to bring in customers and the broader business community to make them aware of the problem.
“Now the need is even greater – cybercrime accounts for more than half of all crimes and after finding this site we can set up dedicated cybersecurity training areas. The biggest companies have their security in order, but it can increase the risk for smaller businesses, which could be seen as easy prey. We are passionate about their security.”
Gladstone and his co-managing partner Iain Powell co-founded the firm 15 years ago and are pursuing a policy of gradual expansion. Having built up a team of ten when they moved to Hessle from the company’s original premises on Chanterlands Avenue, Hull, it now has 15 employees.
Jupiter IT works and recruits across the Yorkshire region and across the Humber Bridge in North Lincolnshire. Clients include Hull City Football Club and a number of legal and financial firms.
As a major partner of Ron Dearing UTC, Jupiter IT supports and maintains the organization’s systems and also invests in preparing students for future roles in highly skilled and influential jobs.
