The €4 million raised from its new shareholders should enable the publisher to conquer new market segments in the field of cybersecurity, in France and internationally. A development that will go through organic growth and acquisitions.

Beemo offers several offers based on its Data Safe Restore technology, including Beemo2Cloud. This service consists of triple data backup: on a Beemo appliance placed at the customer’s premises and on two secure Jaguar Networks data centers, one in Marseilles, the other in Lyons. Based on an inverse mode of operation, the Cloud2Beemo solution relies on the pairing of a virtual Beemo appliance installed in the Cloud with a physical Beemo appliance deployed locally. Then comes the Beemo2Beemo offer, which is based on the placement of a Beemo appliance on a first customer site and its replication on a second Beemo appliance present on a remote site of the same company. Finally, the Beehive service takes the form of a remote backup offer hosted by a Beemo certified partner. Here, the data is automatically backed up on a first site then replicated on a second remote site.
This year, Beemo Technologie expects a turnover of 5 M€. In France, the company claims around 1,000 customers.
