I’m worried about cloud security

In addition to the encryption of all in-flight data, only a few trusted members of the IPConfigure Cloud Team have access to the production environment for the purposes of maintaining our cloud services and assisting our customers. IPConfigure uses independent credentials for each member of our Cloud Team with 2-factor authentication using a physical hardware token. Additionally, we monitor in real-time all access to the IPConfigure cloud.

But what if we still want recording on-site?

Have your cake and eat it too. We can provide both Direct-Cloud recording and Hybrid-Cloud local recording at different sites while providing access to both in a single Orchid Alto interface.

Start recording, managing, and viewing your cameras.
