Business Challenge
A lot of effort goes into developing technology solutions. Developers want to protect their intellectual property (IP) when they license it. But, there is a need to give customers the peace of mind that their investment in your technology is protected.

What is Technology Escrow?
An escrow works much the same way as an insurance policy. When two parties enter into a licensor/licensee relationship, the information encompassing the technology in question is deposited into an escrow account that ensures licensors have a trusted partner who will securely hold onto the technology information and release it only under very specific conditions. Also, the licensees may gain access to that information even if the licensor no longer supports it.

An escrow agreement that balances developers’ need for confidentiality with customers’ need for investment protection achieves this. Through escrow, significant roadblocks are removed in negotiations by relying on a neutral third party to help you establish a win-win escrow process.
The Service
Our service suite includes:

Software Escrow
You are offered secure, physical, and electronic vaulting, with rigorous standards to keep your data safe and secure (offsite facilities, which include uninterruptible power supplies, non combustible construction, gaseous fire protection, and sophisticated access control security systems). Whether you are licensing traditional on-premises or SaaS applications, this service incorporates best practices to track chain-of-custody, including strict procedures addressing storage, facility, and deposit retrieval security. Your source code/proprietary information is released only upon careful evaluation of the agreement terms’ outlined process.
The Service is in compliance with the guidance of the Office of Chief Scientist of the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor, in Israel.

Escrow Verification
Although putting software in an escrow account ensures that code will be released if and when a release condition occurs, you have no assurance that the software will be complete, usable, or even readable. Verification services validate that your contractual commitments to include the necessary information in your escrow deposits are complete, and each deposit contains all the components needed to read, recreate, and maintain software or technology in-house using Escrow Verification services.
The Results
To Developers:

  •  You assure customers they could maintain and support the technology going forward.
  •  You gain a competitive advantage by addressing concerns up front.
  •  You increase confidence that IP management was done correctly through use of a 
          trusted third party.

To Licensees :

  •  You have a safety net. In a worst-case scenario, you could support the software or 
          technology in-house, or hire a consultant to support it for you. Either way, escrow
          helps you safeguard your business continuity.
  •  You have leverage. When a licensee has an escrow agreement, vendors have an 
          added incentive to continue maintenance and support.
