On the 1st December, 2023, Rock IT was acquired by First Focus, Australia’s #1 Rated Managed Service Provider for 6 years running (2018-2023).
No immediate changes will be apparent to you or your team. Over the coming months, your IT support services will be transitioned to First Focus, but for now you will continue to work with the familiar faces of the Rock IT team as all our full time staff (other than Nik Devidas and Lucas Hofmann) will move across to First Focus.
Phone numbers and emails will continue working as before to ensure there is no interruption of service to your users.
Our team looks forward to continuing to deliver great IT outcomes for your business and is excited to continue our journey with the First Focus team.
In the coming weeks, you’ll receive more information, outlining our joint plans moving forward. Rest assured, the same familiar faces you’ve known at Rock IT will be actively involved in guiding you through this exciting new chapter.
Lucas Hofmann and Nik Devidas the co-founders of Rock IT, have embarked on a new venture: 4walls Cyber Advisory, a name you might already be familiar with. The company will focus on cyber assessments, education and assurance, bringing their expertise and commitment to this crucial field.
First Focus has a lot in common with Rock IT, namely a long operational history (20+ years) and an award winning pedigree. But, First Focus also has more than 300 staff, office locations throughout Australia (and overseas), and has the ability to take your IT experience to the next level with the increased capability that comes with this scale.
