Across every industry, businesses are recognizing the efficiencies brought by the Internet of Things (IoT) solutions to improve industrial operations through real-time tracking of machinery, equipment, and employees. What about data centers?
Regarding unauthorized access and other physical threats, integrating data center infrastructure with IoT-enabled security solutions is an efficient option to keep data assets safer with ease. While Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software adds an extra layer of security, access control management and video surveillance are the keys.
Making it a complete physical security solution for rack level access control in data centers, some hardware and software elements are necessary for an upgrade on the existing infrastructure.
Moving forward to the ‘new normal’, agile and flexible physical access control systems will become a major consideration for data center security of industries particularly like healthcare, laboratories, finance, education, government, and industrials, where the mission-critical facility is required to protect the sensitive document. IoT-enabled solutions will be the answer for advanced security operations to meet the needs of tomorrow.
To tackle the evolving physical security challenges, employing robust physical security measures integrated with Access Control as a Service (ACaaS) and Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) to help mitigate the risk of data breaches caused by physical intrusion is an essential step to take.
