When considering your Escrow provision it can be easy to opt for a default provider rather than spending time researching the various alternatives on offer.
On the surface, Escrow protection is similar whichever provider you choose: Source code and/or data is stored securely until your software owner is no longer available to support their application, at which point the source code and data deposits are released, enabling you to continue to use the application with minimal disruption to your business.
However, a number of factors including the services offered, levels of security, accreditations and cost can vary significantly between providers.
At SES we pride ourselves on delivering high value Software Escrow solutions and below we have outlined five of the key reasons to consider choosing SES as your Software Escrow provider.
1. Bespoke Agreements covering all clients on all products
Instead of providing an out of the box, one size fits all solution, SES listens to your individual requirements and builds a bespoke Escrow agreement to meet your individual needs, usually at no additional cost.
2. Flexible depositing using SFTP facilities as standard
To ease Escrow provision for your SaaS/Cloud clients, SES have developed SFTP depositing facilities which enable you to adopt a high frequency data depositing strategy. These facilities ensure that your client’s application data is kept up to date and you can automate deposits for daily, weekly or fortnightly drops etc. – this can even be automated in line with periods of low traffic to minimise the impact to your business.
3. Security and Accreditations
Here at SES, security and privacy are our primary focus. All source code deposits, regardless of agreement type are encrypted to ensure the highest level of security.
SES also hold a number of accreditations including ISO 27001 and Cyber Essentials which demonstrate our commitment to ensuring internal processes meet strict regulations for information security management and to secure against cyber threats.
4. Client Satisfaction
We are immensely proud to maintain a 99% customer satisfaction rate and to have received fantastic testimonials from clients including: Arcadia, Network Rail, HSS: Healthcare Software Solutions and the NHS.
5. Cost Effectiveness
