I understand that it is not possible to secure your software if a third party has physical access to the box (eg colo). So may be I can install some sort of hardware (like a seal) which only need to be physically broken to get access to certain server components (eg RAM). So if it is broken I get compensation through legal process rather.

Any ideas are welcome.

EDIT. PLEASE answer the question - are there commercially available tamper evident devices for rack mounted computers?

Here is another question which explains the underlying issue for those with curious minds :) http://security.stackexchange.com/questions/11899/help-to-account-all-the-points-of-physical-access-to-a-rack-server-to-steal-softHelp to account all the points of physical access to a rack server to steal software
