Simple Escrow Protection – Affordable Price

Published on 09/05/2022

Software Escrow protection shouldn’t be difficult or costly to set up. For over 20 years, SES has focused on delivering Software Escrow protection that is simple to set up, fairly priced and meets the needs of our clients.

Drawing upon this experience, L1 allows us to refine all of that knowledge and experience into one simple package. For just £895 you get a Software Escrow agreement which is designed to protect either a hosted (SaaS) or on-premise application. It includes the highest security levels in the UK Software Escrow industry – UKAS certified ISO: 27001, ISO: 9001 and £250,000 indemnity liability protection. There are no set-up fees and your agreement can be set up over a coffee.

Premium Protection For Key Applications

To protect your key business applications, the ones that are business critical, bespoke, highly customised or revenue generating, a simple Software Escrow agreement may just not cut it.

To support those clients which require greater levels of assurance that their key applications can be swiftly and accurately redeployed within your maximum tolerable downtime. SES provide advanced Software Escrow solutions which are designed to protect your most valuable applications.

These sophisticated protections present a complete business continuity solution, providing much quicker redeployment and offering greater assurances of accurate recovery in the event the developer of your applications is no longer able to support them.

These protections include:

  • Remote Code Validation Testing – Remote Code Validation Testing involves the Software Developer (Licensor) rebuilding the application in their own environment. The SES testing consultant witnesses the full rebuild of the application via a secure remote connection and documents the entire process. (This process can also be completed with the SES testing consultant on-site at the Licensors premises if required). The independent report compiled by the SES testing consultant coupled with the audio and visual recording of the build enables you or a third party to accurately redeploy your software application in the event of a release.
  • Simulated Release Events – When coupled with Remote Code Validation, Simulated release events demonstrate that the build documentation is sufficient for a Software Developer to rebuild the application upon release. Therefore, making it the only form of Validation Testing which provides complete assurance that the Escrow deposit can be swiftly and accurately redeployed whilst minimising downtime in the event of a release.
  • SaaS Redeployment Solutions - The SES SaaS Redeployment Solution, which we call Continuity365 is a live and functioning disaster recovery solution. When called upon, SES will be responsible for rapidly recreating the working service on your behalf. Following a confirmed release, the SES will provide a guaranteed period of service continuity. Providing invaluable time to make alternative arrangements – whether that’s bringing the service in-house or transitioning to a replacement. This period of continuity is built into the coverage from the start and guaranteed by SES.

In addition, all SES agreements are protected to UKAS certified ISO: 9001 and ISO: 27001 standards and include £5 million indemnity liability protection.
