Security at Orca Scan

Data Encryption

Orca Scan uses industry-standard encryption protocols to keep your data secure. We use TLS encryption to protect data when it’s being transmitted between your device and our platform and AES-256-bit encryption to secure your data when it’s stored on our servers.

Secure, reliable infrastructure

Orca Scan is a cloud native application. We do not own any servers, instead, we rely on the secure and reliable hosting capabilities of Amazon AWS, Google Cloud Platform and Digital Ocean. Their data centres are equipped with advanced security measures, such as 24x7 monitoring, biometric scanning, and video surveillance, to ensure the protection of your data.

Access Controls

Robust permission and user controls allow you to manage who can access your data. By assigning different roles and setting permissions, you can control who can view, edit, or delete certain information within your account. This helps you maintain the security and privacy of your data by ensuring that only authorised individuals have access to it.
