Software Escrow Agreement

A Software Escrow Agreement is a simple and effective tri-party arrangement with mutually agreed terms between the software customer, vendor, and Escode. Under the terms of the Agreement, the vendor periodically deposits a copy of the software source code and associated materials for secure storage, ensuring that the material can be accessed and released should the need arise.

Software Escrow Verification

Software Escrow Verification tests the source code and material held under the Software Escrow Agreement to ensure it is correct, complete, and can be rebuilt into the working application. Software Escrow Verification enables businesses to document and test business continuity plans for critical third-party services, providing a higher level of resilience.
