Physical and data center security services help address client’s security requirements in all aspects
which include protection of personnel, hardware, networks, and data from physical circumstances that could lead to a serious damage.
Data center security signifies the array of technologies and practices used to protect the physical infrastructure and network systems of an organization from external and internal threats. In layman’s term, data center security is all about identity and access management. Only authorized personnel should be able to access critical infrastructure and IT systems.
Data centers are far more complex than a warehouse space filled with servers. They are often designed from the ground up, keeping in mind the best practices of security and infrastructure. Each element of the physical security of a data center should be implemented in consideration of the other elements so that together they form an interlocking network of security measures, each one enhancing the effectiveness of the others.
Along with the technical measures, your organization needs a holistic security policy to manage it all. Protocols and procedures for common and unusual contingencies need to be in place to provide data center personnel with clear guidelines on how to carry out the data center operations.
These controls need to be developed in advance and regularly tested to ensure that everyone knows how (and why) to keep the facility secure from potential threats. By implementing a “Zero Trust” security philosophy, data centers can significantly reduce the risk of unauthorized access. Everyone is subjected to the same high level of scrutiny and must verify their identity and reason for accessing the assets at every session. Like any other data center policy, these processes should be audited regularly to ensure their effectiveness.
