Source Code and Software Escrow Services

What is Source Code Escrow?

Source code escrow is the deposit of the source code of software with an independent third-party escrow agent.  The software's source code is released upon the happening of a trigger event that has been agreed between the parties.

For example, if the licensor files for bankruptcy or the licensor fails to maintain or update the software as promised in the software license agreement. 

Source code escrow services are most often used for mission critical software where the licensee cannot risk the licensor going out of business or failing to maintain the software.

Independent and neutral source code escrow storage.
