GitHub Backup software for repos and metadata

Backup GitHub repositories and metadata

plus minus

Simply connect your GitHub account to easy setup automatic, daily GitHub backups of repositories and associated metadata, including issues, pull requests, actions, wiki, and more. New repo? It will be automatically added to your GitHub backup plan and schedule.

Manageable, professional GitHub backup

plus minus

Don’t waste your dev’s time to maintain backup scripts. Set a backup plan and schedule so the GitHub backups will perform accordingly. Have control over the type of copies (full, incremental, and differential), rotation scheme, unlimited retention, encryption, compression, and of other professional backup features.

Any storage - AWS S3 cloud or on-premise

Instant GitHub restore and Disaster Recovery

Instant restore

Point-in-time restore to GitHub

plus minus

Recover GitHub repositories with associated metadata directly to your GitHub account - the same or new one. Forget about 30-days retention and restore GitHub data from any point-in-time. You can even use our unlimited retention for GitHub archive purposes.

GitHub down? Cross-over recovery & DR

plus minus

Recover GitHub repositories with metadata to the different version control hosting platform - i.e. Bitbucket or GitLab - with few clicks to ensure instant Disaster Recovery and eliminate downtime. Get back to coding immediately and accelerate your projects with a peace-of-mind. GitHub migration? It’s a breeze!

Super-fast granular recovery

plus minus

Don’t restore the entire GitHub environment everytime you need to recover a particular metadata. Easily browse your copies, search for git repository data to restore and perform fast, granular recovery of repositories and only chosen type of metadata.

Security by design, for your compliance needs

Advanced audit logs & notifications

plus minus

Have access to advanced audit logs and visual statistics that let you track all actions performed in the system, quickly diagnose the errors and perform backup on-demand to react immediately. Set email or slack notifications, and stay up to date with no login needed.

SOC2 and GDPR compliance

plus minus

We are SOC2 (on finish) and GDPR compliant. Such secure and proven GitHub backup software is the basis for you to meet your industry and legal requirements as well as the GitHub security and shared responsibility model duties.

Military-level encryption

plus minus

AES agent-side encryption with your own encryption key makes GitHub backups impossible to decrypt by no one, except you. Due to zero-knowledge encryption, your service does not have any information about the encryption key - it receives it only when performing a backup.

Time-saving central management


Web-based central management console

plus minus

With our intuitive central management console, you can easily access and use even the most advanced features - directly from your browser. Powerful, data-driven dashboards, visual statistics, and real-time actions combine ease of use, precise management, and time-saving.

Multi-level management - admins & roles

plus minus

Add new accounts, set roles, and privileges to delegate responsibilities with your team and administrators. Grant or limit permissions to each account to have more control over access, and data security within your GitHub backup solution.

Backup many GitHub organizations

plus minus

Within one account you backup and manage an unlimited number of GitHub (as well as GitLab and Bitbucket) instances. We made it easy for IT administrators to manage data protection of many version control hosting platforms, GitHub migration and cross-over recovery.

Service outages


Error: human, software or hardware

Diebold Nixdorf

The last Jira outage gave us a lot to think about - mostly how would we deal with a such scenario ourselves. And the answer didn’t fill us with much optimism. We needed to make fast changes and include Atlassian tools in our backup policy. There was one problem – most backup vendors don’t cover DevOps tools. So the initial issue has grown even bigger. Fortunately, we heard about GitProtect, tested Bitbucket backup, deployed it and now we are waiting for the upcoming launch of backup for Jira. For us, GitProtect is a real game-changer.

Mark Wolland Senior IT Project Manager

We live from coding. So we are aware of intellectual property value. We need to make sure that our customer’s data and the source code of their GitHub projects are protected and accessible from any point in time. GitProtects provide us with nearly unlimited retention and GitHub archive possibilities. And features like encryption and password manager ensure us with our code security.

Marcin Pastuszek CEO at PQ studio

To achieve SOC 2 certification, our organization needed to implement a fully manageable GitHub backup solution. There was no question about compromising any of our strict security policies. GitProtect with its strong focus on security, user encryption, and policy-based advanced backup plans set up was the obvious choice.

How can I set up long-term retention and GitHub archive?

Most git backup vendors offer retention limited to 30 days. Forget about it. GitProtect gives you full control over retention so you can keep your copies as long as you want and recover repositories from any point in time. If you have unused repositories, use this feature as your GitHub archive.

As the user you can define the retention rules in three ways:

  • by indicating the number of copies you want to keep,
  • by indicating the time of each copy to be kept in the storage. Those parameters are set separately for the full, differential, and incremental backup,
  • keeping all versions infinitely.
plus minus

What are GitHub restore and GitHub migration possibilities?

All data restore possibilities are available directly in your management panel. Unlike in other vendors, you don’t have to install any additional GitHub restore app. Simply choose data you want to restore (repositories or repositories and metadata) and decide whether it should be restored to:

  • your local machine,
  • a new GitHub repository,
  • crossover - to another hosting platform. It enables fast and easy GitHub migration - you can restore your repository to Bitbucket or GitLab repo and conversely.

And with the Granular Recovery feature, you gain fast, and point-in-time recovery of all GitHub repositories or repositories and only selected types of metadata.

How to set a backup plan and schedule to protect GitHub Projects, repos, and metadata?

A backup plan lets you manage your GitHub projects’ protection easily and effectively. Setting it up lasts up to 5 minutes and then you just watch the magic happens. You can choose a predefined backup plan (i.e. backup of all repositories) or customize your own.

In such a backup plan you indicate:

  • data to protect (i.e. all data, only chosen GitHub repositories, and metadata),
  • storage - whether you use on-premise or SaaS you can store your copies locally (local disk resources - NAS, SAN, or SMB network shares) or in the cloud (Xopero Cloud, AWS, and all S3 compatible clouds - i.e. Azure, Alibaba Cloud, Google Cloud Storage, Wasabi),
  • schedule - it gives you the possibility to set the frequency of backup execution in monthly, weekly, daily, and hourly manners. You can limit backup performance time to non-working hours so it does not impact your work and network bandwidth,
  • advanced features - retention, versioning, and rotation schemes (GFS or FIFO), encryption level, compression level, and much more...

What are GitProtect for GitHub security features?

Security is our top priority. We need to make sure we deliver our customers peace of mind so they can focus on what they do the best - building world-changing software. GitProtect brings you confidence when it comes to your GitHub security and backup, including:

  • Backup encryption - your data is always encrypted with AES algorithm - considered impossible to break and used by the US government to encrypt confidential data.
  • In-flight encryption - the encryption process starts before your data even leaves your physical machine so it’s protected either during a backup performance and at rest in the repository.
  • Zero-knowledge encryption - your device does not have any information about the encryption key - it receives it only when performing a backup. We don’t know what’s inside and nor will any intruder.
  • Secure Password Manager - store and manage all your passwords (internal and external) in one, secure place. Create strong passwords you don’t need to memorize - save them and pick from the list once needed.
  • No single point of failure - in short: you can lose access or all configuration of the management panel but as long as you have your encryption key you can restore the data.
  • Detailed audit logs - All information, errors, success notifications, warnings… with all the details so you can easily identify any cause-and-effect relation.
  • Backup verification - anytime you can test if your backup works. We keep you informed about backup execution with detailed in-panel statistics and email reports.
