We take security seriously at IrisVR and are constantly working to ensure that your data is safe. Because we continue to build out cloud-first Prospect features, we have engaged with a third party security consultancy to help us ensure that privileged data is secure and help us work towards SOC 2 compliance.
However, it’s important to understand that when you use the collaboration features of Prospect - or use Prospect with the untethered Oculus Quest - our cloud system is leveraged for data transfer.
Data transfer to our cloud system is always encrypted. Our binary file format is proprietary, and cloud-hosted files can only be seen by another user of Prospect if they are authenticated and have appropriate access rights.
In case the nature of your work prohibits the use of a cloud environment entirely, we still want to find a way to support your use of Prospect. Please send us a message here.
Can I use Prospect without syncing my file to the cloud? Yes, but your capabilities will be limited. You can use the Prospect desktop library without syncing your file to cloud, but you will not be able to use the collaboration, meeting, and issue tracking features. You also would not be able to view your file using an untethered Oculus Quest headset.
When I collaborate with someone, am I giving them my file by syncing to the cloud? As a Prospect user, you own your files and can control who can access them. If you invite another person to collaborate, you will have to enter their email address or provide a share code. This does not give that person the file; rather it allows them to see it in Prospect. They would not be able to download the file and bring back into the native software platform it was created in (such as Revit).
How often is Prospect updated and how are updates authorized? We release new versions of Prospect at a variable cadence. We do not force updates; when we release an update you will be prompted to auto-update. New versions automatically write over old versions when installed, but all files in your library will be maintained.
