A SPECIALIST IT firm is making strides in the nuclear and engineering sectors as it helps to protect sensitive company data.

Yellowbus, whose head office is based in Birchwood Park, has launched a number of new services to aid the science industry including a secure cloud and IT back-ups.

After a recent period of growth for the company, Yellowbus has added to its existing portfolio of IT services, also launching a secure IT helpdesk, based in its Network Operations Centre on-site at Birchwood Park.

This facility will observe the data of clients’ IT systems, and provides a back-up service when networks go down.

It also ensures that IT systems are functioning efficiently and provides suggestions for improvements and upgrades.

Another of Yellowbus’ solutions is a UK-based cloud storage system tailored specifically for the nuclear and engineering sectors.

Due to the sensitive nature of the data these companies collect, this new private cloud is locked down to its own security cleared staff.

Michael Douglass, commercial director at Yellowbus said: "We’ve gone from strength to strength during recent months at Yellowbus.

"We have expanded our service offering greatly and are looking forward to progressing with our new projects within the nuclear sector."

Martin O’Rourke, commercial director at Birchwood Park said: "It’s an honour to have such a variety of occupiers at the park, and we are always keen to hear all of the fantastic projects and developments they are working on.

"Yellowbus is no exception, and with its location on the park, within the science and nuclear corridor, we can’t wait to support them on the park and see what happens for them next."
