Software Escrow

Our software escrow solutions protects all parties involved in the development, provision and use of software applications and processes. We have two software escrow offerings to protect software application source code.

Standard Escrow Services

Protection of software applications where the same software is used by multiple Licencees. This service enables multiple Licensees the opportunity to register against a single agreement set up between ourselves and the Vendor.

Protection of software applications that have been specifically developed or amended for a single Licensee. This enables a single Licensee and Vendor to have their own agreement setup with ourselves.

Our standard software escrow service offerings have:

  • Standard contracts protecting all parties
  • Clearly defined roles and responsibilities of all parties
  • Definitive rules of engagement and terms of release events
  • Standard fee structure
Bespoke Escrow Services

Protection of software applications that require specific changes to the standard contractual arrangements between Licensees, Vendors and ourselves. This service requires the engagement of all parties to determine and agree on the contractual arrangement and fee structure.

    Intellectual Property Escrow

    Our Intellectual Property (IP) solution ensures the IP Owner is contractually protected against the disclosure of its proprietary material to third parties with the help of the Escrow Agent, except under the limited circumstances determined by the owner in the escrow services agreement.

    As an escrow agent, we are able to provide bespoke IP escrow services to owners where required. This requires engagement of the Owner and Trusted Information Services to determine and agree the contractual arrangement and fee structure.

          Software Verification Services

          Our Software Verification solution is a value-added service that enables Licensees to reduce their risk further by having the independent verification of source code deposited in escrow. 

          Basic Verification service

          This escrow service involves our escrow agent checking the escrow code deposit to
          ensure that it is complete and consistent with the expectations of the Licensee. The
          outcome is to confirm that the code can be accessed and read and is consistent with
          the expectations of the Licensee.

          Basic Verification includes:

          • File listing date/time checks
          • Size comparison checks
          • Document content to actual lodgement checks
          • Virus, compression and encryption checks
          • Media access checks
          • Internal documentation checks plus copyright/other licensed software reported
          full Verification service

          This escrow services expands on the Basic Verification service and involves rebuilding of the Licensee’s code from the deposited source code to the fullest extent possible and providing a Full Verification Report that may be incorporated in both Licensee and Vendor Disaster Recovery Procedures.

          Full Verification includes:

          • All Base Verification activities
          • Rebuilding of Licensee’s code from deposited software
          • Verification of software functionality (to Licensee expectation)
          • Full Verification Report (kept with deposit)

          COST of software verification

          The cost of software verification will depend on the level of verification required and on the complexity of the source code deposit. Trusted Information Services will engage with all parties to determine the specific requirements and agree outcomes and then cost the Software Verification program accordingly.
