Keepit establishes UK headquarters to enhance local data protection services

Tue 27 Feb 2024

Keepit has announced the opening of its UK headquarters in London, marking a significant step in its UK market entry.

This strategic move is spearheaded by Jerry Mumford, Keepit’s VP for UK, I, and MEA.

The company’s expansion follows a £31.5 million ($40 million) refinancing from HSBC Innovation Banking and the initiation of the Keepit Partner Network, underscoring a pivot to a partner-only business model.

“Establishing a stronger base in the UK is an important step for Keepit; an opportunity to build on the foundations we already have here, and grow our partner ecosystem and customer base,” said Jerry Mumford.

This expansion comes in response to Keepit’s consistent year-on-year growth in the UK, setting the stage for further market penetration and localised customer support.

Tackling the UK’s Cybersecurity and Data Protection Challenges

Keepit’s expansion into the UK addresses the critical need for robust data protection in a region characterised by advanced IT infrastructure and high technology adoption rates.

The UK’s dynamic market presents unique challenges, including increased threats from cybercriminals and the potential impact of data loss on business continuity.

Keepit aims to fortify UK organisations against such threats, leveraging its suite of data protection services for SaaS applications, emphasising data sovereignty. The company’s commitment to vendor independence and environmentally responsible operations aligns with the UK’s regulatory and sustainability objectives.

“Our commitment to vendor independence, broad service coverage, fast recovery times, and dedication to security, will mean that more UK organisations will have the resilience to keep their businesses running, even when disaster strikes,” Mumford added, highlighting Keepit’s strategy to meet the UK’s data protection needs with enhanced services and support.

Keepit will appear at Cloud & Cyber Security Expo on 6-7 March at ExCeL London.
