When it comes to protecting and extending the life of a data centre, monitoring and security go hand in hand.
Achieved through implementation of specialised software, hardware and sensors, enabling common, real-time monitoring and management platform, or through electronic access controls and full audit trails.
Breaches to physical security can lead to vandalism or theft of critical and expensive equipment, interruptions to service and confidential information potentially falling into the wrong hands.
A layered approach should be taken to physically securing data centres.
Dependent on specific and individual requirements, an organisation’s strategy towards physically securing its computer room and its critical infrastructure should include a combination of CCTV cameras, perimeter fences, external barriers, alarms, doors, security staff and integrated access control systems.
