Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA) in Software Outsourcing — Everything You Need to Know

What is NDA?

  • Unilateral NDA — only one of the parties agrees to protect the information received from the other party. This is the most common type of non-disclosure agreement that allows companies to protect their business and strategic information.
  • Mutual NDA — both parties agree to protect each other’s sensitive information. In software development, mutual NDA may protect both company’s strategic information and the contractor’s technological information.

NDA software outsourcing tips

  • Verify whether signing NDA is essential. In the case of simple projects that don’t require sharing sensitive information, an excess of legalities may severely slow down the process.
  • Secure your confidential information yourself. In case the information is being revealed on your side, the NDA becomes ineffective.
  • Collect evidence of agreement breaches. In order to execute receiving compensation, you will be obliged to prove the agreement violation to the contractor.
