Switching to digital storage and cloud solutions helps agencies speed up their process and better ensure that all of their evidence is safe. Plus, the cloud lets you all but eliminate the chance of losing an interview recording.
Digital interview evidence recordings have long needed a better review, storage, and sharing solution.
That’s exactly what iRecord’s cloud storage solution delivers.
Safeguarding evidence data is at the core of iRecord Cloud. The robust cloud solution mitigates the risk of losing data by backing up files using Geo-Redundant Storage replicating the data across two geographically distributed data centers.
iRecord Cloud also minimizes open firewall ports and relies on stringent encryption standards and a secure hashing algorithm to protect data at rest and in transit.
Cloud storage eliminates the manual process of downloading and sharing files back and forth. Instead of relying on USB drives and other physical methods of interview evidence sharing, investigators and prosecutors can access iRecord video recordings at any time and from anywhere.

Approved parties log in using a secure online portal using two-factor authentication for remote access to an interview’s high-quality audio and video playback.
They can also add notes, make redactions, and share encrypted files with additional agency members. These remote-access options allow public safety agencies to keep up with an increasingly mobile, remote, and hybrid workforce.
While creating an intuitive and convenient method of storing and sharing interview recordings, iRecord Cloud strictly complies with federal, state, and local requirements for evidence data storage.
This includes guidelines from the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS), the United States Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP), and the Department of Defense Enterprise Cloud Service Broker.
iRecord is currently working on launching an evidence vault cloud solution to easily categorize, index, and retrieve archived evidence data as part of a global modernization effort by the company, with additional plans to offer enhanced case management solutions and video analytics in the future.
