Octavian IT, the Cyber Essentials-accredited IT division of the multi-service provider Octavian Group, has won a prestigious new contract with a group of US-based health companies – the latest in a string of new business wins for the expanding Nottinghamshire firm.

Octavian IT will provide IT management services for the Colton Health Group, which comprises five businesses based at various locations across the US specialising in cancer treatment, rheumatology and medical billing services. Octavian will manage Colton’s IT from its Arizona offices, bringing the fast-growing Group’s systems up to date and ensuring they are protected against disasters.

As part of the deal, Octavian will implement disaster recovery processes, provide hardware and software, improve Colton Health Group’s cyber security and migrate the company’s email and data storage solutions to the Microsoft cloud.

Octavian IT has bucked the trend of the past two years by winning a variety of major contracts with businesses across the globe. The firm now works with companies in the UK, Australia, Canada, Dubai and the US, impacting thousands of international users.

Octavian IT managing director Ben Solomon said: “We’re delighted to announce a contract with such an exciting company. For obvious reasons, the quality of the healthcare people receive is at the forefront of all of our minds right now, and the fact that Colton Health Group is growing rapidly shows just how seriously they take their work. That such a great company wanted to work with us is testament to how well Octavian IT is regarded on the international scene.

“I’m extremely proud of our team, whose work continues to generate fantastic results. Unlike a lot of firms we have enjoyed a stellar two years of new contract wins, and I’m sure our international expansion will continue apace as the year progresses. Octavian IT has gone from strength to strength, and I’m excited to see what the future holds.”
