Verification
Verification confirms the viability of escrow lodgements and therefore improves the reliability of your risk management plans.

Traditional escrow methods assume that the escrowed material is complete and usable by the end-user. There is no check on whether this is in-fact true. Harbinger offers a superior service. Harbinger’s escrow service include several software verification options.

OTHER VERIFICATION OPTIONS

Tailored verification services.

Of course, these three verification solutions will not suit all software and businesses. We would be happy to tailor verification services to suit your particular needs.

Supervised Compilation and Lodgement

The test compilation of the source code (part of Level 2 Deposit Analysis) can be a time-consuming exercise. Supervised Compilation and Lodgement occurs when the escrow agent attends the vendor’s workplace, confirms the build environment documentation, observes the compilation of the source code into object code, observes the working object code and then supervises the lodgement of the materials into escrow.
