Keepit, a provider of cloud backup and recovery that offers a blockchain-based cloud dedicated to SaaS data protection, announced it has formally entered the North American market with the establishment of a U.S. headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas.
The announcement comes after a $30 million investment in the company aimed at fueling Keepit’s global growth in becoming a leader in the SaaS data protection market.
Keepit protects data in key business applications including Microsoft 365, Google, and Salesforce, and covers a broad client base of major corporations and institutions across all sectors and industries globally.
“Keepit is excited to formally establish a presence in the United States and to broaden its customer base among U.S. information technology enterprises. With the rise in and prevalence of ransomware, businesses are seeing that it’s important now, more than ever, to ensure that their data is properly backed up,” said Chris Braden, Keepit’s vice president, sales and channels for the Americas. “The fact that Keepit is built on blockchain technology gives us tremendous competitive differentiators, and provides our partners with a distinct advantage and protections when it comes to their cloud-based data. The very encouraging early response from partners is a testament to the demand for Keepit’s product and the huge market opportunity ahead of us.”
While all of the large SaaS business applications offer uptime and data protection against attacks, many companies using these services are unaware that they do not come with a built-in backup solution, and that data stored within these services is not automatically protected against data loss. This leaves a gap in coverage that can catch businesses off guard.
Keepit fills this gap in protection by offering a fast, reliable, and easy-to-use solution with its cost-effective, vendor-neutral cloud, according to the company.
Key features of Keepit’s SaaS data protection solution include:
- Fully automated backup for core SaaS applications (Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Azure Active Directory, Microsoft Dynamics 365, Salesforce and Google Workspace);
- Blockchain-based encryption technology that ensures data is immutable and impenetrable to any ransomware attack;
- A vendor-neutral data center infrastructure that stores four backup copies in two separate locations, ensuring data availability;
- Unlimited storage and archiving, and fast restore features that minimize downtime.
