Software and Technology Source Code Escrow Protection

Flint & Battery allows you to manage risks when entering into a software development and licensing contract with your trusted solutions provider. FlintTechnology allows you to place your software source code in a secure location.

Security is the key to a smooth and mutually beneficial business transaction. Often, the key to a successful business relationship is with the assistance of a neutral third party, particularly in the case of mission-critical software, proprietary information or technology licensing is in play.

Unforeseen events can disrupt crucial business operations backed by software infrastructure. For example, a developer may not be able to support its product in the future—whether due to a bankruptcy, an end-of-life announcement or a merger, acquisition or strategic partnership. In these crucial circumstances, your disaster recovery architecture demands that source code to your essential IT infrastructure is released to you. This source code will facilitate recreating, maintaining and supporting your application environment moving forward.

FlintTechnology’s Software Escrow Services offer secure physical storage and release is authorised only after verification meets contractual requirements.
