Software Escrow with Deposix for software developers or other licensors if IP/IA

Placing your source code or other intellectual property/intellectual asset (IP/IA) in escrow with Deposix offers you, as a software developer or licensor of other IP/IA, a clear competitive advantage. It allows you to provide investment protection to your clients and guarantees that your software or IP/IA will support their business-critical applications over a long term. Just as important, with software escrow you also protect your own interests during the development phase for off-shore or near-shore projects. You can be certain that we at Deposix will safeguard the material you have entrusted to us with the greatest care, and will comply with all the conditions of the escrow contract at all times.

Deposix offers you, as a software developer, an integrated and seamless escrow process: flexible contract structuring, professional contract management and regular incorporation of any updates to the material that you have deposited with Deposix in your personalized escrow account. In addition, Deposix conducts a technical verification of the software source code on your behalf, either related to or independent of a current escrow account with Deposix, providing you with an independent technical appraisal testifying to the completeness and quality of your software.

Advantages for software developers and other licensors

  • Your protection: software escrow protects your intellectual property rights at the time of delivery to your clients or partners – an upfront and unconditional handover of your source code to these parties is avoided.
  • Continued security: with software escrow your source code is continuously protected against unauthorized access; at the same time allowing you to address your clients´security requirements through regular updates.
  • Additional level of trust: software escrow is a confidence-building measure – allowing you to guarantee the highest level of security and continuity to your existing clients.
  • Clear competitive advantage: with software escrow you set yourself apart from your competitors – your guaranteed investment protection inspires trust in both existing and potential clients.
