Protect customers’ software and your intellectual property
International companies, official bodies, municipal councils, non-profit organisations and cultural institutions all have to safeguard the software that maintains their competitive edge. Should a problem occur, they need to prevent their software from losing value and causing major disruption to their business operations. To do this, they have to be able to access their software source code. Which is where software escrow comes into play.
Software escrow is the guarantee of continuity in all key business processes. It is also the assurance you need to protect your own intellectual property. The central feature of software escrow is the deposit of a source code with an impartial third party.
