CfMD Software Escrow

What is CfMD®?

Certified for Microsoft Dynamics® (CfMD) is an accreditation received by independent software vendors (ISVs) whose business solutions have passed Microsoft’s in-depth testing including the assurance that the software is compatible with Microsoft Dynamics, has been successfully implemented by other customers, and is fully protected through source code escrow.

Why Source Code Escrow

Source code escrow is the deposit of the source code of any software through a third party escrow agent. Escrow is usually requested by a party licensing software (the licensee), to ensure maintenance of the software. Source code escrow is the best way for protecting the investments of buyers, licensees or investors in any software-base products.

To meet the requirements, partners must:

  • Place source code into escrow allowing for multiple beneficiaries.
  • List the escrow company on your Validation Checklist.
  • Maintain an active source code agreement while the Certified for Microsoft Dynamics® (CfMD) logo is being used.
