What Are Escrow Services?

Guard-IT provides third-party escrow services to secure and preserve software source code, data, formulas, diagrams and other intellectual property.

Escrow resolves the issue of source code accessibility or possession, protecting  your technology assets by placing them with a neutral third party for safekeeping.  The escrow agreement defines the developer’s ownership of the deposit materials, the designation of clients, licensees, investors or other interested parties as beneficiaries and the specific terms or “Release Conditions” that would trigger a release of the escrow deposit materials to a beneficiary.

Multi-User escrow agreements give developers an extra layer of intellectual property protection, control of the basic escrow terms and the flexibility to add UNLIMITED beneficiaries to the same agreement.  Single-User agreements are customizable, with specific terms that are exclusive to a particular beneficiary.

Established in 1999, Austin, Texas-based Guard-IT serves clients in more than 34 countries, ranging from small software developers to Fortune 100 corporations, along with various city, state and federal agencies.  The Guard-IT executive team brings together more than 65 years of combined experience in technology development, dispute resolution, intellectual property matters and corporate contract law.
