We are data center experts

The most optimal and strategic way to safeguard your data center is to manage it in terms of layers. Although cyber security strategies are often the sole focus for purpose-built buildings, a comprehensive strategy incorporates both physical and cyber solutions and is able to deploy multiple security controls to protect the most vulnerable areas of your IT environment, where a breach or attack could occur. Reinforcing each security layer prevents unauthorized entry from the outside into the data center.

Four-layer protection that provides a defense-in-depth approach.

Perimeter securityThe first layer deters, detects, and delays any unauthorized entry at the perimeter with radars, LPR, PTZ cameras, and thermal imaging.
Facility controls — In case of any breach in the perimeter, the second layer of defense restricts access with 24/7 rigorous monitoring, actionable insights, and real-time notifications.
Cabinet controls — Besides the first three layers, we implement additional security measures in data center racks, such as electronic locks and wireless, cloud-based access control, to restrict entry, prevent insider threats, and abide by regulatory compliance.
Computer room controls —ation methods, including biometric verification.
