Data protection that spans on-premises and cloud - and costs less.

Simplify your workload protection with built-in management at scale.  Our Backup & Disaster Recovery services are cost-effective, dynamic solutions that are scalable based on your data protection needs. The service can be tailored to meet both on and off-premises data protection and recovery.  

The VIGILANT.IT Backup Service uses integrated on-premises and cloud backup powered by Microsoft’s Azure Backup tools that are powerful, easy to manage, and will cost you less than traditional backup systems. It’s rare to find a backup solution that does both on-premises and cloud well. And if you do, the cost can be prohibitive in terms of paying for storage you don’t need, or staff costs associated with managing it.

With almost 20 years of Microsoft partnership, a distinguished level of Microsoft competency, and more than a decade of cloud experience, VIGILANT.IT is the perfect choice to assess and modernise your data protection needs.
