In present, it has become mandatory to carefully secure stored data. A strong firewall will not help if an unauthorized person physically accesses the device and copies the data, corrupts your device or, in the extreme event, takes it away.
National and international authorities are adopting new and new regulations concerning personal data handling, which consequently affects the requirements for the physical security of the IT infrastructure.
Although a professional commercial data center is usually a building with impeccable physical protection, occasionally it is necessary to additionally physically separate and secure active devices.
A data center cage provides IT racks with fully enclosed space, separated from the other clients´ equipment with a wall system that includes door access control. Door access control options include basic key locks, electromechanical and biometric scanners and provides the highest standard of physical security for data centers.
Similarly, it is possible to provide the protection to IT racks, by attaching electromechanical handles with card readers, which can be subsequently integrated into building security systems. A wide range of security levels is available, for example two-factor authentication, high-frequency cards, etc.
Attempts for successful and unsuccessful entries are precisely logged, thus provide a useful tool for controlling and preventing security incidents in the future.
