SOUTHFIELD, Mich.– Secure-24 Inc. – a leading provider of managed IT operations, application outsourcing and enterprise cloud computing – announced today that it has grown substantially this year through the beginning of the 2nd quarter, and year-to-year growth in April.

The company has positioned itself as a global leader in helping mid-size to large companies gain the most value from their IT investments, and managing complex IT landscapes for clients that have operations around the world. Secure-24’s robust private cloud has helped businesses gain performance and agility while maintaining enterprise-level security.  The company has a 50 percent mix of global clients versus U.S. based companies.

Over the past twelve months, Secure-24 has seen a five-fold increase in business, which has prompted aggressive employee recruitment, strengthening partnerships with leading IT companies, data center investment, and the need for a bigger corporate headquarters.

Since April of last year, Secure-24 has had a 61 percent increase in employee count – creating hundreds of IT jobs in Michigan. The company expects to continue this hiring trend for the next few years, with the anticipation of an additional 250 employees by 2015.  Secure-24's hiring spike is driven by an expanding customer base, therefore increasing the need for additional team members. With each successful project, new and existing clients are bringing bigger, more complex IT requirements to Secure-24, due to the team's ability to solve issues and deliver results.

“We have some of the industry’s best technologists who use their knowledge and creativity to deliver exactly what our clients need for their growth and success. And we’re looking for more people with a passion for IT and the success of others,” said Secure-24 Chief Executive Officer and co-founder Matthias Horch.

The company’s investments also go beyond personnel increases to provide quality services to clients.  Secure-24 has invested millions of dollars into cutting-edge technology in data centers, so clients always benefit from the latest storage solutions with higher performance and security.

“We’ve created a successful business model to address the unique needs of our clients who require custom IT solutions built on proven processes,” said Secure-24 Chief Operating Officer Volker Straub, who co-founded the company a decade ago. “Clients are looking for providers who have strong SLAs, and can lower their opex and capex while meeting high compliance requirements. We are proud to partner with companies to fulfill these needs and help them gain competitiveness through innovative IT solutions.”

Secure-24 maintains teams of highly experienced IT professionals who specialize in cloud computing, critical application management and IT outsourcing services. The company is also a SAP Certified Hosting and Cloud Provider with a broad SAP Basis Competency Center, and an Oracle Platinum Partner for hosting Oracle Enterprise Performing Management (EPM) solutions.

“Our growth also comes from our strengthening partnerships with global IT leaders who help us deliver the best hosting solutions using world-class technology,” said Horch.

Secure-24 has moved its growing team to a larger headquarters facility at 26955 Northwestern Highway in Southfield. A total of 257 employees are now fully in place.

Secure-24 delivers IT solutions to an expanding base of clients in growing industry segments, including manufacturing, technology, consumer goods, chemicals, financial services, construction, healthcare, pharmaceuticals and transportation.  The company serves hundreds of global corporations with revenues in the $500 million to $10 billion range, including numerous Fortune 100 enterprises.
