How mRay protects data

To prophylactically exclude data leaks

Privacy and Security

Referring to the article Millions of unprotected patient data in the network of Bayerischer Rundfunk, we would like to inform you again how extensively mRay protects your data. The leaks mentioned in the report are unprotected PACS systems over the Internet. According to ARD Tagesschau these breakdowns were caused by importing CDs or by misconfigurations of the data-carrying computers. mRay is not affected by these leaks. Our application offers a wide range of protection so that such breakdowns cannot occur.

Data encryption is not optional but mandatory in our application. Images downloaded via the mRay app are stored in a proprietary format and only contain the data required for the display of the necessary information. There is no way in the app to get access to the original DICOM files.

For more detailed information on data protection and data security in mRay please refer to the official letters to our customers.
