Automated Source Code Deposits
Secure, automated source code depositing facilities
Source code deposits can be scheduled to occur as often as the application changes (most customers choose deposits to occur on a daily frequency), providing maximum business continuity protection in the event of a release.
Our systems work with all the major repositories including GitHub, GitLab, Bitbucket, Beanstalk, FogBugz, Devhub and Sourceforge amongst others. Your code is downloaded into an isolated environment to ensure there are no security issues and anti-virus can be run on each piece of code before it is stored securely in Escrow.
This service works seamlessly with alongside the continued development of your application to ensure your clients have access to the most accurate version of their source code whilst also removing the burden of making manual Software Escrow deposits each time the source code is updated.

Why do I need a Software Escrow Agreement?
For End Users of business-critical applications, a Software Escrow Agreement protects you against the developer of your business-critical applications no longer being able to support their applications.
For Software Developers, an Escrow Agreement helps build credibility and trust that you have your clients interests at heart.
How does a Software Escrow Agreement work?
In its simplest form, an Escrow Agreement is a tri-party agreement between an End User, a Software Developer and a third party Software Escrow Agent. The Developer licenses the application to the End User as usual but also deposits a copy of the source code for the application and any other material required to accurately redeploy the application into Escrow which can then be released to the End User if a release event contained within the Escrow Agreement is triggered.
How much does a Software Escrow Agreement cost?
The answer to this is entirely dependent on the level of protection you need. SES offers a range of Software Escrow Agreements depending on how many clients will be added to the agreement (for Software Developers), how many business-critical applications the agreement will be used to cover (for End Users) and whether the application/s in question is installed on-premise or delivered through a SaaS model.
