Source Code Escrow

In the event of software failure, source code is typically required to modify, support or maintain an application. The practice of requiring a source code escrow as part of a larger transaction is the cornerstone of any protection plan for licensed technology assets or significant investments in technology.

Source code escrow agreements are often used to support:

  • Software License Agreements
  • SaaS agreements
  • OEM agreements
  • IOT agreements
  • Joint Ventures
  • Partnerships
  • Embedded Technologies
  • Investments in software companies

  • Key questions to ask yourself in planning your source code escrow solution:

    1. How often does my vendor change or update the source code?
    2. How often are they required to update the escrow deposit?
    3. What is the impact to my business if a critical software vendor fails?
    4. In addition to source code, what would I need to support the software without the vendor?
    5. Who would help me support the software if my vendor fails?
    6. Do I have ready access to a functional backup of my data?
    7. What release conditions make sense for my situation?
    8. How can I use the escrow deposit materials?
