About Data centre physical security

Keep your data centre secure with the latest advice on access control from security experts in this field. There's no point in having biometric access into and out of a building if anyone can call up the guard and simply ask to be added to the list to get in. Find out how your security policies are documented and ensure that employees follow these rules. Make sure you have the right distributed monitoring tools to alert you to any breaches in the physical security of your data centre. Facilities managers as well as security staff should all be notified in the event of intrusion, fire, power failure, high/low voltage alarms, generator failure, UPS failure, temperature/humidity changes, breaker trips, leak detection and under floor water detection.
