Formerly known as ESCROW EUROPE (Pty) Ltd

Our Story

ESCROWSURE began its journey as a franchise of the Escrow Europe Group, founded in the Netherlands in 1989.

Escrow Europe (Pty) Ltd was constituted in South Africa in 2003 and, subsequent to a share acquisition transaction in 2010, became a wholly owned South African registered and incorporated company.

Our Network

Escrow Europe (Pty) Ltd t/a ESCROWSURE is a founding member of the International Software Escrow Association, ISEA®. As part of the ISEA® network of world-class escrow service providers from the Netherlands, Great Britain, Scandinavia, Israel, France and the United States, the company maintains its position on the forefront of international escrow best practice. We are members of the Institute of Directors (IoDSA), the Business Continuity Institute (BCI), ISACA and CITI, to name some of the more prominent associations and professional bodies. In South Africa, we are the thought leaders in the field of professional escrow services and were instructed by the IoD and the King Commission to co-author professional escrow guidelines for South African directors and officers.

Our Clients

Our clients include a selection of the world’s central banks, South Africa’s largest banks, industrial firms, government agencies, software houses.

The Institute of Risk Management of South Africa (IRMSA) has recognised our role in assisting South African companies manage their mission critical business risks.

Our SA Brand

In August 2023 the business underwent a full rebrand with a new corporate identity and emerged as

ESCROWSURE is the recognised market leader and preferred software escrow brand of choice to South African corporates.

For leading SA corporates who need to be reassured against the potential business risk of being reliant on third party software Vendors, ESCROWSURE provides a bespoke, flexible approach combined with expert advice and technical know-how.
