Disaster recovery solutions that never existed before
BeBop’s proprietary postproduction software platform sets a new industry standard for security.
BeBop streams an image of the desktop, so content files never leave the security of their private network.
Images are captured as pixels, compressed and encrypted and then sent to the BeBop client for decryption and decompression. This is the same security protocol used by many defense and intelligence agencies, among others. Additionally, storage is separate to isolate the content safely.
BeBop delivers on its security promise through our partnership with Teradici, which provides the foundation for BeBop’s high-quality user experience through its core desktop remoting protocol.
Storage is direct fiber attached to cloud environment
Security via services integrated into existing AWS, Azure and/or SoftLayer environments
VPC peering (AWS)
Global private network + managed VPN infrastructure (SoftLayer)
Day-to-day infrastructure support / system monitoring
Operational reporting and analytics
Help desk / defined escalation procedures
Workflow / event based hyper-care support available
Monthly billing model (detailed billing and usage information included)
Additional development & ancillary services available: rapid prototyping, POC build out and evaluation, cloud strategy, software development (backend / front end), etc.
