Escrow as a Service

par NCC Group plc

Embrace the cloud with confidence with EaaS from NCC Group. Business continuity made simple.

What is software escrow?

Software Escrow is an agreement between three parties that ensures the availability of business-critical software for the end user whilst protecting the ownership and intellectual property rights of the software supplier. The agreement is designed to mitigate risk and protect all parties involved.

Our solutions offer protection by safely depositing copies of the application or data information in our secure vaults. Our legal agreements enable us to provide access to these materials and give customers the right to use, restore or recreate an application, data or service in the event of a mutually-agreed release event.
