File Integrity Test – Included Free Of Charge With All Agreements

The File Integrity Test is a check of the deposit to ensure that the data can be accessed and it is free of viruses. The basic verification report includes the following checks:

  • Ensuring that data exists on the deposit media that resembles source code data.
  • If the data is encrypted, a working encrypted key is included in the documentation.
  • If the data is compressed it can be decompressed into a logical file structure.
  • Ensuring documentation exists detailing the required components needed to compile the software.

Comprehensive Build Verification

Comprehensive Build Verification is a complete and independent test to ensure that the software can be compiled into a working system
An Escrow London software expert observes that the software can be compiled using the supplied source code. This verification test may be performed onsite at the developers’ location or remotely via a secure connection.

The Comprehensive Build Verification report includes the following checks:

  • Ensuring the deposit is accurate and includes all the files and documentation required to compile and build the software into a working application.
  • The report includes a confirmation that a complete list of 3rd party applications required to compile the software exists in the deposited documentation.
  • Confirmation of software language used to build the software.
  • Confirmation of the database system used and its structure.
  • If the data is encrypted, a working encrypted key is included in the documentation.
  • Full file listing of the source code deposit.
  • Ensuring documentation exists detailing the required components needed to compile the software.

Isolated Rebuild Verification

The Isolated Rebuild Verification test is performed to simulate a release condition where a 3rd party is rebuilding the code.  This is a 2 part process that includes a Comprehensive Build Verification with the developer and then a rebuild on a clean environment following the steps of the Comprehensive Build Verification report. This test ensures that the code may be rebuilt in an independent facility away from the developers’ environment. The clean environment component is performed at the secure Escrow London private data centre.

Simulated Release Verification

The Simulated Release Verification test is performed to simulate a release condition where the beneficiary will be tasked with rebuilding the code.  This is a 2 part process that includes a Comprehensive Build Verification with the developer site and then a rebuild on a clean environment following the steps of the Comprehensive Build Verification report. This test ensures that the code may be rebuilt at the site of the end user (beneficiary) away from the developers’ environment.

SaaS  Release Verification

This testing process ensures that the replica cloud instance and database is functional according to the expectations and requirements of the client.  Each verification process confirms the ability to deploy the environment using scripts and to connect the application to the database. The process includes detailed documentation of the steps required to launch the application and an opportunity for the client to perform a Disaster Recovery test of the replica application.
