For organizations using SaaS applications, the most determining question asked during the due diligence process is, “What is your uptime?” In other words, how available are your services so my business does not suffer? This questions should not stop with the availability of the SaaS application, and it should very much deal with the availability of your data when you need it.
At the end of the day, justifying the use of a SaaS application can only be made if you can justify the risk associated with the SaaS providers availability and the availability of your data. Anything can happen to your SaaS vendor which could put your data, and therefore your business, at considerable risk. Whether the SaaS organization faces insolvency, breach, network availability, your organization must continue operations – and it can only do so with your data.
Eskroh provides a unique and secure way to absolve this risk to your business continuity. Using Eskroh, you will have the ability to balance the scales with your SaaS provider by securely escrowing not only the software they are providing but also the regular backups of your data. Set to your backup interval – to ensure you have the tools you need to continue business operations.
Solving SaaS Risks
At the time of supplier failure, the end-user will risk loosing all data and services. Anyone investing in SaaS environments should consider these risks. At Eskroh, we understand the risks associated with using SaaS applications. We keep your organization moving in the right direction instead of coming to a complete total standstill, because SaaS application data was not properly escrowed. We provide seamless continuity to escrow your data.
At the time of an application loss, all users lose immediate access to the application. That is why our Eskroh arrangement takes into account both the short-term continuity and long (er) term. We help with Contingency Discovery when you use SaaS applications. This will help your organization to analyze the time required to implement a new solution after the loss of a supplier. After you diagnose how long it will take to get your SaaS application to become operational and fully working again, you can calculate how large your potential revenue loss might be. We are there to bridge any data gaps with SaaS application.
With any business relationship, there must be a balancing of the scales as far as continuity of business is concerned. As it relates to software providers, most are reluctant to release their source code because that is their business and viewed as the keys to the kingdom. This is their mindshare and competitive advantage. Should they lose their source code, their business and livelihood are at risk.
Because of many different plausible reasons, software providers are routinely required to escrow their source code as part of contract negotiations with their customers. Equally as important, in this equation is their customers’ ability to maintain business operations. Because they have elected to use your software and place tremendous trust in your companies’ longevity, they want some level of assurance that your software will be available to them if something happens to you.
This is why you need Eskroh. Using Eskroh, developed by software engineers and security experts, your source code will be secure using multiple layers of encryption. Using both symmetric and asymmetric encryption capabilities, no one will have access to your source code unless a mutually agreed upon trigger is instantiated. Additionally, so your customers have a level of comfort with using our escrow services, we can use their public key as part of our layered security of your source code. We understand software. We understand security. We will make sure your source code is protected.
Solving Software Risks
It is imperative that software escrow must use chain of custody best practices. Escrow updates are provided in real time with one singular point of account management. The most important thing an organization needs in software escrow is security. Eskroh tracks the chain of custody in deposit security from the receipt time to the release of the deposit. A trading partner will then encrypt and transfer electronic media deposits using secure transfer protocols. The Eskroh cloud storage facilities adhere to the highest levels of security and compliance. Our state of the art storage facility offers: uninterruptible power supplies, fire protection and access-control security systems. Trading partners define data security rules and Eskroh implements the rule set.
Bankruptcy, obsolescence, merger or acquisition are the only things that will keep you from meeting your software obligations. That is why your customers need a guarantee that they will have access to your source code in the event that something happens to your organization. Call it a data guarantee, so their critical business operations will continue to operate at full capacity and not negatively impacted by your organization.
