Leading SaaS Data Protection Provider Keepit Launches Advanced Protection for Microsoft Azure AD

Keepit, a leader in cloud data management and data protection, has now introduced its full data protection solution for Microsoft Azure Active Directory, the Azure AD Advanced connection. With a blockchain-verified solution, Keepit is the only independent, vendor-neutral cloud in the world devoted to Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) data protection.

The Azure Active Directory (AD) connector that Keepit added to its multi-cloud backup and recovery solution in a software update earlier this year is expanded by Azure AD Advanced. Keepit also provides coverage for Microsoft Power BI and Azure DevOps, enabling it to provide the best data protection for the most important Microsoft cloud services.

“Although Microsoft has invested quite a bit of money in providing user-oriented recovery such as versioning, recycle bin, and preservation features, native protection tools for the directory are weak and have time restrictions”, “With our leading protection for Azure AD, Keepit helps companies close any Azure AD gaps in their security strategy and recover business-critical identity and application objects that Microsoft doesn’t protect.”

Azure AD, which has more than 550 million users, is regarded as the brain of the Microsoft cloud ecosystem, making its security absolutely crucial. Organizations use Azure AD to help manage who has access to data and user information through secure authentication. Companies who neglect to properly backup Azure AD run the danger of developing security holes that result in substantial downtime, data loss, and restricted access to vital resources. Azure AD protection speeds up disaster recovery, boosts general security, provides protection against routine data loss, and boosts information technology (IT) effectiveness.

The new Keepit Azure AD Advanced release has the following improvements to improve coverage and recovery:

  • Policies for Conditional Access:

IT administrators may preserve, restore, examine, and trace changes to Azure AD Conditional Access policies with Keepit.

  • Registrations for applications:

Application objects registered in Azure AD are backed up by Keepit.

  • Enterprise applications and service principles:

The Azure AD tenant’s service principals with registered and assigned permissions are backed up by Keepit.

  • Device profiles for Intune (device compliance and configuration policies)

Organizations may safeguard against unauthorised or unintentional modifications that might affect device access by backing up and recovering their security-critical Intune device compliance and configuration policies in Azure AD with Keepit.

  • Bitlocker key guards:

Customers can protect and restore Bitlocker key protectors using Keepit, which is an “industry first,” ensuring ongoing access to devices that have Bitlocker encryption.

Customers can rapidly implement data protection with Keepit’s new Azure AD Advanced release, preventing situations where the Azure AD system would need to be rebuilt from scratch. Keepit offers fully automatic coverage for Microsoft 365, Microsoft Dynamics 365, Google Workspace, Salesforce, and Zendesk in addition to safeguarding data in Microsoft Azure AD. Keepit is still the go-to solution for organisations to safeguard their cloud-based data because of its unrivalled usability, quick restore features that reduce downtime, and cost-effectiveness.
