Data centers serve as the foundational pillars of the digital economy, safeguarding access to essential services. Ensuring the security of these facilities against perimeter breaches is critical in protecting the functionality relied on daily. Acknowledging that physical security begins at the perimeter, data centers are adopting a strategy similar to cybersecurity, extending firewalls and antivirus practices to the facility’s outer boundaries.
Amid various methods to detect perimeter intrusions, the ultimate objective remains the combination of dependable alerts with swift awareness of unfolding events. Convergint has collaboratively partnered with SightLogix and will discuss the deployment of SightLogix’s advanced SightSensor smart cameras across global data centers at Convergint booth #1733 during GSX as part of the TechTalk series.
The customers of the DoE and Fortune 10/100 corporations choose the partnership of Convergint and SightLogix for their capacity to deliver real-time, high-probability intrusion alerts. The core strength of their solution lies in a comprehensive set of strategies:
- Ensure reliable intruder detection without straining Security Operations Centers (SOCs) with false signals.
- Utilize thermal sensors for real-time awareness in challenging lighting or environmental conditions.
- Deploy large buffer zones for early detection at the outermost perimeter boundary.
- Integrate geo-aware PTZ trackers that automatically follow intruders, even beyond the camera’s field of view of the detecting camera.
- Implement an edge-based solution that eliminates the risk of system-wide failure and seamlessly interfaces with existing systems.
