Plymouth-based technology firm Blue Screen IT Ltd. has won an IT security contract from the Plymouth City Council. Under the terms of the contract, Blue Screen IT will provide the council with information security implementation and support. The council's decision will keep business in the city, which is integral to the Plymotuh Bites Back campaign.

"The council found massive added value from the fact our IT security company is local, allowing the promptest communication and response times,” said the firm’s spokesman Neil Johnson. "Blue Screen IT will be consulting on and implementing high-end IT requirements to secure and accelerate Plymouth City Council's network.

"This will provide a stable and secure system to support the public growth requirements for online access from the city of Plymouth."

Blue Screen’s managing director Michael Dieroff added: "We're delighted at being able to keep the skill growth and local business down here in the South West, and with Blue Screen IT. The contract was contended for by several other organisations across the UK, but local service and competitive tendering – and the correct skill sets – gave Blue Screen IT the edge required to keep this contract local."

"We have provided similar training and consulting services to organisations including Nato, Whitehall, Ministry of Defence Tri-services and the Land Registry.

"As a local and independent company, based in Plymouth, and with the support of organisations such as Plymouth City Council keeping this type of work locally, companies like Blue Screen IT will be able to support enterprise and business in the South West, and grow from strength to strength."
