Software ESCROW

OUR DEFINITION OF CUSTOM SOFTWARE ESCROW AGREEMENT

It is the solution software corporations are increasingly using to secure their investments in development. While escrow provides developers with legal certainty (both domestic and international), confidentiality and immediate protection, it also offers guarantees for their customers (licensees).

Under an escrow scheme, the source code is safeguarded, together with the latest version of the software and any additional materials that may be useful to identify the program. Agencia Escrow® offers two choices: first, the software program can be custodied by Agencia Escrow®, who keeps it in a safe in a bunker; the second option, more advisable as it provides full legal certainty, consists in depositing the source code with a Notary Public.

According to our escrow model agreement, Agencia Escrow® acts as a mediator and auditor, so we are bound to supervise annually the fulfillment of the clauses in the License agreement, also checking and updating the latest version of the software in escrow.


OFF-LINE ESCROW

Off-line escrow consists in putting the electronic storage device containing the software in a safe, thus preventing hackers from accessing the information online, or any attempt to tamper the computer systems allowing a breach of security.

Due to the confidentiality of our clients’ projects, the legal protection of source code, together with any manuals or other confidential information that it is needed to protect, off-line escrow is the best possible way to protect classified information and to secure its custody.

 

With our off-line escrow the information is encrypted, put in an electronic storage device and sealed. In addition, the security key for access is also put in a separate storage device. Both devices are kept in separate safes located in different places.

 

Agencia Escrow® owns fire and attack-proof safes, which are guarded according to the Spanish regulations for resistance measures (Arts. 8 and 10 of Ministry Order INT/317/2011, of February 1st). Our safes provide the following security measures:

 

1.    A mechanical or electronic device enabling the door lock

2.    An electronic system for attack detection connected around the clock

3.    Detectors for attacks through the ceiling, walls or floor

4.    Volumetric detectors

5.    Fire-fighting measures

6.    Authorized access monitored by Agencia Escrow®’s personnel

 

SOFTWARE AND OTHER SOFTWARE COMPLEMENTS VERIFICATION

 

When the escrow of a source code is performed, it is most convenient to perform a verification of such a code. Our SOFTWARE VERIFICATION control process ensures that the software meets its specifications and satisfies the user’s needs, providing transparency to escrow.

Our verification involves the collection, grouping and evaluation of evidence to determine whether or not a computer system safeguards the information assets, maintains data security and integrity and performs efficiently the organization’s goals in full compliance with all regulations in force.

Our computer engineers specialized in Systems Audit carry out the software checks, and they follow the strictest standards of confidentiality, thus providing transparency to escrow process and adding value to our client’s business.

 

ESCROW AUDIT AND MAINTENANCE

 

Our maintenance and supervision of the escrow contract is performed in ongoing basis, ensuring the parties to the contract that the agreement and its guarantees remain fully effective. Our service watches over and pursues that all the clauses and requirements as agreed in the escrow contract remain unchanged during the stipulated term. In case our audit detects a change, we report it and pursue its correct update, so that the agreement remains in force.

 

A complete audit of the software in escrow provides our clients with a detailed report on its condition and operability. We also prepare for them a plan aimed to ensure an optimum level of their computer systems. Therefore, and thanks to our service, not only our clients are able to detect any shortage in their systems but Agencia Escrow®, in our role as consultants, will also suggest improvements and cost-efficient lines for future stages of software development.
