Keepit platform:
A powerful architecture

To keep things simple for you, our platform is architected with all central features and functionalities shared across the supported applications and workloads. This means you only need one service vendor for protecting all of your cloud data.

Platform architecture

Built for the cloud

Keepit isn’t an ordinary backup technology retrofitted to the cloud. It was designed from the ground up as a cloud-to-cloud backup and recovery service, supporting the future in the cloud by being scalable, flexible, and secure. Built from scratch, Keepit offers customers the best backup and recovery platform, customizable to their specific needs.

User experience has been key in designing the platform. Gone are the days of managing tape rotation schemes, scratch disk volume space, network capacity plans, and ever-outdated backup schedules. Enter the world of a straight-forward 'click to configure' user experience with an underlying automatic and adaptive engine — an engine adapting to your specific needs in the ever-changing environment of the cloud.

Secure by design

The Keepit platform has been architected with security at its core. We know that customers trust us with their data, so security is paramount to Keepit, constantly adapting the latest security concepts. One of the absolute key pillars of our platform is the object store that prohibits the deletion of any data object or backup set — giving you peace of mind that your data will stay safe.

API only

No cloud services without full API. The core of Keepit is based on consuming and transferring data from your applications via APIs. But it doesn’t stop there. Keepit also offers a complete API so that Keepit’s backup and recovery services can be automated and integrated in your environments based on your needs.

Should your business have the need to automate interactions with Keepit — be it audit log analysis using your favorite analysis tools, a quick Power BI interaction, or a script you whip up for something we didn't even think about — then we probably have an API ready for this already.


Simplicity is not a given when it comes to enterprise software. But we know that customers are demanding simple solutions that are easy to use and understand. Every single day, our engineers ensure that the complex is made it easy for you when you interact with Keepit.

We often hear customers asking: 'Is that it?' after having done the 5-minute setup of Keepit . The configuration is as simple as that, regardless of the number of users and amount of data in your application. Once configured, the underlying cloud backup engine will automatically and intelligently adapt itself to working with your primary workloads.

Simplicity is key to our design — also when it comes to the user experience. Therefore, Keepit has developed four unique features for you to easily find and recover lost data, making this super simple.


Keepit was built to provide you with instant online access to everything, from everywhere, at any time.

The search engine allows you to search recursively, through time and space, to find that one document that was lost “somewhere in accounting at some point in time in the past few years.”

Any dataset, no matter how old, can instantly be accessed at a granular level (meaning single emails, single documents, folders, and more depending on primary workload). With the click of a button, previously deleted items can be shown to you in the folder you're viewing — simple search features like this make finding items to restore a breeze.

Archiving and data retention

The purpose-built nature of Keepit allows us to efficiently, reliably, and securely store backup data for as long as you need. We have customers with a 99-year data retention policy, and we take this seriously.

Your entire backup history is always readily available. There are no costs linked to accessing older datasets and no extra delays to access older data, unlike from cold storage or even tape storage.

This is made possible by the unique data life cycle management foundation and storage architecture upon which Keepit is built.

A central component in Keepit is our innovative storage architecture. All data protected by Keepit is stored and protected by the hash-chained object store developed by Keepit.

This key component is massively scalable, and the underlying object store was created from the ground up specifically to support the Keepit workload.
Our storage architecture is built using a blockchain-like structure which opens up for verification of backup set consistency and authenticity that’s simply not feasible using older technology.

Platform capabilities

Five-minute setup

It takes five minutes to set up, regardless of the size of your company. And it’s easy to create new connectors and simple to add or remove admins from a connector. Configurations are infinite and easy to do, all through our super intuitive interface.

Instant restore

Search and find

Any item found during our powerful and intuitive browsing and searching experience can be instantly restored back into the primary dataset with the click of a button, with full granularity. It’s what we call the Keepit Universal Restore View.

Search: Search across the connector, no matter where you are browsing from.

  • Search across the connector
  • Search in subfolders
  • Configure which data to display


Efficiently manage your data by utilizing diverse filtering and sorting options to quickly find the information you need:

  • Folder
  • Video
  • Images
  • Audio
  • Emails (additionally, you can filter by subject, 'to' and 'from')
  • Documents
  • Other
  • Improved sorting (sort by ‘Size’, ‘Date’, ‘Exact match’; ‘inclusive by date’)

Display data: Take control of your search results by determining which data is displayed.


Shared link: Send a read-only link to an online version of the data you found. For security purposes, the link can be made time sensitive and password protected. This very handy tool provides end-users fast, easy, and most importantly secure access to their deleted data, which they can then download the right version quickly and get back to work fast.

Restore wizard: The Restore Wizard guides you through the restore of data across one of the main Microsoft 365 data areas: Exchange (including Public Folders), OneDrive, SharePoint, or Groups & Teams. The wizard allows you to select the snapshot you want to restore from, the scope of data, the method of restore, and how to handle duplicates. All data can be restored in place, bringing it back to its original location. Mail, Calendar, In-Place Archives, and OneDrive can also be restored to a new folder, bringing data back to a new location in the same user account.

Multiple restore options: In-place restore, granular restore, cross-user restore

Job monitor

Thanks to our powerful job monitor, you get instant insights into how current and past backup jobs have performed. It displays an overview of all connector activity, specifically all past, current, and scheduled jobs. The job monitor also shows statistics about each job (the size of the backup, the number of items restored, etc.), the reasons for incomplete jobs, and a list of skipped items.

Keepit will automatically notify you in case significant risks or problems arise with your backup set. In most cases, the adaptive cloud backup engine will successfully work around any intermittent problems, such as transferring data out of the primary workload, but in cases where automation falls short, the system will call for human intervention.


  • Not API first – API only!
  • One API: Integrate once
  • All features available as API endpoints
  • Cloud backup SDK
  • License configuration, provisioning, and deactivation through API or Web UI

Customized retention

Set connector-specific retention limits for any and all of your connectors, allowing you to have unique retention periods for different connectors.

Access control

Ramp up your security standings with access control for fine-grained control over what specific user roles can do in the platform, supporting, for example, enterprises with off-shored support teams and other complex environments. With Role-Based Access Control system (RBAC), every entity, department, or subsidiary can control who has access to their own data set — and even custom RBAC.

Audit log and compliance

To enable you to document retrospectively, the audit log will keep track of who did what, and when. The audit log is available both via the user interface and via the API for integrations into third party products such as log analysis tools.

RTBF (Right to be Forgotten) labels ensure data items cannot be recovered to the production database. RTBF labels protect files by preventing them from being previewed, downloaded, or restored, in accordance with the GDPR,

Data monitoring and insights

Visible data makes a business resilient. Keepit's monitoring dashboard provides a convenient, no-nonsense solution for keeping a close eye on SaaS data across multiple workloads — in one simple dashboard. 


Quickly identify outliers and abnormal changes in data growth before they can affect your business. Remain data resilient no matter what.

Gain control and confidence from being proactive rather than reactive. Face ransomware and other cyber threats knowing that every change in your data is under vigilant observation: Cyber preparedness and resilience in one simple to use platform.
