Secure Sensitive Information and Equipment
Datacenter facilities house an immense amount of sensitive information and equipment. For this reason, they are often the target of security incidents such as theft or intentional damage. Hackers can gain a great amount of knowledge about a company in a matter of seconds. With the world ever advancing toward IP-based information storage, datacenters need to advance security of these facilities, not only from potential attacks from the outside, but also from inside facility walls.
Datacenters need security not just on the perimeter of the facilities, but also within the facilities’ walls to protect data and equipment. Traditional locks and keys can only do so much to protect against theft and damage. They cannot provide valuable information to datacenter operators and security personnel. A unified, networked platform that incorporated video and access, control along with other advancements such as video analytics, intrusion and remote audio, offers new levels of insight. Data from these systems is combined and correlated to provide instant alerts of activity as well as comprehensive reports and event management of the facility’s risk profile.
