About IT Farm

IT Farm - the award winning, specialist Cloud Computing Provider for Legal, Accounting, Financial and Professional Service companies.

Established in 2005, IT Farm was one of the first specialist Cloud Computing Providers in the UK. The company was set up by a team of corporate IT professionals headed up by Dr James Huntington, Managing Director.

Back then we had one simple aim: to provide small to medium-sized businesses with value for money IT that enables and supports business growth rather than just being seen as a costly overhead. Pioneering the use of data centres and delivering IT from the Internet was the perfect solution.

Today, they call it Cloud Computing and it is rapidly becoming the de facto way for businesses to run their IT. However, not all providers and solutions are the same - far from it. At IT Farm your software runs with the same look and feel as if it were installed on your PC, when in actual fact the software is running securely from our Cloud. This means your Applications can be accessed from anywhere on any device whilst your data is stored securely in our data centres. What’s more, your systems are constantly monitored by our team of IT professionals, giving you peace of mind without having to worry about performance, reliability, security or compliance issues.

As a Microsoft and Citrix Certified Hosting Partner, we continue to grow our business by offering outstanding value to our customers and providing the highest levels of customer service. Our commitment to support was recently acknowledged when IT Farm won the British Chamber of Commerce’s North West Award for Customer Service excellence.

Our ISO 27001 and ISO 27017 compliant services alongside our industry certifications and sector specific technology partnerships ensure we continually deliver outstanding services to companies where productivity, client service, data security and compliance are key.
