proprietary software

proprietary software
   Software developed in-house by a particular business or government agency and never made available commercially to the outside world.
   The operating systems used in certain portable computers and PDAs (personal digital assistants) may also be considered proprietary, because they are specific to one system and are not generally available anywhere else.
