OPTEX secures data center from perimeter to data cable

Data centers need to be as secure as a fortress to avoid any intrusion, unauthorized access and any attempt to tamper with critical data or equipment that ensures smooth operation. Looking at the generic layout of data centers and the type of intruders, no less than seven physical layers of access should be secured.

Starting at the perimeter, where fence and walls without an additional security system can be defeated. If they are it is crucial to track the whereabouts of the intruders using in-field detection. Building roofs and skylights can also represent a weak point to access the building and need appropriate protection too.

Security breaches can also happen with people who have access to part of the data centre building venturing into unauthorized areas, including people trying to piggyback authorized staff in critical areas. Finally the most critical assets, the data, could be physically accessed or tampered with, either at the server racks point or at the data cable one.

OPTEX intrusion detection solutions including its fiber, laser, 3D thermal or video analytics based technology can help secure any layer of access to data centers.
