Over time, data centers have become more complex and even more critical to a company’s daily operation and overall success. They require specific security elements to reduce operational risk and maximize their customers’ uptime. Bosch and Convergint work together to design unique security plans tailored to every organization’s specific requirements and needs. By evaluating risks, security integrators can implement physical security measures that integrate with electronic security elements to form an interlocking network of layered security measures. Here are some of the essential layers of security and systems necessary to protect data centers.
Layers of Security
Layered security combines all the necessary security elements to create the interlocking network essential to protect a facility. This type of security is both an effective and efficient defense solution. Each layer provides a unique security system that connects with all the other layers.
By using thermal security cameras for perimeter detection, users can confirm potential treats around the outside of a building, even when it is dark outside. These cameras can use advanced video analytics and other sensors that detect intrusion creating a robust perimeter defense.
Ultra-high-definition cameras with built-in intelligent analytics can detect threats in vital mechanical and electrical equipment areas, as well as loading docks.
Facility Reception and Facade
Access control and intrusion technologies will help security authenticate people entering and exiting. Security teams can install video intercoms at entrance locations that require individuals to authenticate credentials to gain entry to the facility. This allows security operators to validate this information with a visual of the person.
Escorted Areas, Hallways, and Gray Space
To have large camera coverage in sensitive areas leading to a data center, security teams can install panoramic cameras that provide clear footage in critcal locations. Adequate security measures can be taken and video analytics can be used to detect motion in restricted or sensitive areas.
FLEXIDOME IP 3000i
Built-in essential video analytics enables users to easily retrieve forensic evidence. Additionally, intelligent streaming reduces bitrates by up to 90% compared to other cameras.
Essential Components of Data Center Protection
Convergint and Bosch partner to provide intelligent solutions that give businesses smart advantages beyond security. They believe that the next logical step for security is to allow businesses to interpret data and begin repurposing the vast amounts of video data their systems collect. By enabling businesses to interpret data at the source, they can significantly improve their security measures and gain distinct business advantages.
