Increased cybercrime and the impending GDPR helped Datapac win €5.5m in new managed services contracts with Irish businesses last year.

The adoption of the tech company's services has increased as information security strategies become a priority across the market.

The Wexford-based technology solutions and services provider expects to grow its business by a similar figure this year.

Datapac recently invested in its Network Operations Centre (NOC), which dramatically improved the capability and capacity of its services.

General manager service delivery, Karen O’Connor, said that the €2.1m investment "provided us with a significant competitive edge in the Irish market, building on our reputation for delivering a highly specialist and proactive service that’s tailored to support the unique business needs of each customer".

More than 650 companies are now actively supported by Datapac which has seen particularly strong demand for its managed ICT security, backup and business continuity, infrastructure and managed print services.

"Growth of €5.5m in our managed services division is a fantastic achievement for the expanding team here at Datapac and fully endorses the recent investments we have made in our business," director Patrick Kickham said.

Datapac became HP's first Irish partner to scoop the company's Partner of the Year award for UK and Ireland last year.
