Who are Rockford IT?


Rockford IT started in August 2001 in Rock Cottage in deepest Shropshire (Newport, located next to a Ford), when our founder, Tom Sykes, decided employment wasn’t for him. He thought he could see the future as far as IT was concerned – it was all about security (and so it has proved). With that in mind he set up a Security Consultancy.

It was soon apparent local SMEs needed IT expertise and support and within 2 years Tom had taken on his first employees, Simon and Zoe. Rockford IT is a leading Managed IT Services Company with customers across the UK in almost every sector.

Rockford IT was the first WatchGuard Platinum Partner in the UK, UK partner of the year in 2015, and is now still just one of two UK platinum partners.  Our WatchGuard expertise runs deep, as you can find out if you check out the team to see how knowledgeable they are.

However, our knowledge, expertise, services and solutions go well beyond WatchGuard.

We take security and quality seriously and have held ISO 27001 and ISO 9001 certification since 2008 and 2003 respectively.
