Once you have agreed the contents of your technology escrow account, the corresponding intellectual property needs to be deposited into the escrow account.

There are two options for depositing:

1) Physical vaulting

Physical vaulting means the software licensor sends a copy of the source code on a physical storage device (e.g. disk, USB drive) to be held at a secure Iron Mountain facility. Physical deposits benefit from security measures at the facility, including swipe-card access and CCTV.

2) Electronic depositing

Electronic deposits are deposited online and placed on our secure FTP site. Electronic depositing means that:

  • You can update your account at any time
  • You reduce packaging, shipping costs and complications
  • You have immediate confirmation that your deposits have been received

Your deposits are then securely stored by Iron Mountain.
