Protect your software, technologies, data and documents with software escrow. Have them deposited with swissEscrow and become independent from the software developer.
Software source code, technologies, and certain data or documents are the trade secret of the developer and are not accessible to the client.
However, in order to maintain and further develop the business or production, the buyer must be able to have access to this source code or data.
Now what if the developer stops providing services, goes out of business, is bought up by a competitor, goes bankrupt, or is unable or unwilling to provide support?
If the source code, these technologies, data or documents has been deposited with swissEscrow, your company will have straightforward and rapid access to them in such situations.

The protection of operational software, technologies, data and documents is crucial for your business and for your company’s success. Software Escrow caters for the interests of both developer and client.
In the process of software escrow software source code, data, development documents, contracts, etc are securely deposited with a neutral third party, the so-called escrow agent. The agent is only authorised to release what has been entrusted to him in certain predefined cases.
Software and data can be submitted to swissEscrow online and encrypted. Physical objects (data carriers and documents) are stored securely in the vault of a Swiss bank.
Data submitted online is stored in encrypted form exclusively on servers in data centres located in Switzerland. These data centres meet the highest security standards (daily backups, emergency power backup systems, fail-safe air conditioning, fire extinguishing systems, strict access control and video surveillance).
The costs of an escrow deposit consist of a one-time initialisation fee – for drafting and concluding the escrow agreement and setting up the storage location – and a monthly escrow fee. Additional services will be invoiced according to time spent.
