Secure your data centre from Physical threats

When it comes to security for data centres, there is often a focus on the software inside and thwarting hackers and other virtual threats such as viruses. However, due to increasing thefts of hardware in data centres, on-site security is becoming a prerequisite.

The theft of hardware and servers has become quite prevalent in recent years, where there is now a lucrative black market for computer equipment. Criminals are aware of what they are looking for, even targeting specific brands of hardware. Despite the financial cost, theft of data centre equipment can put a company’s credibility and business continuity at risk.

With this in mind, it is crucial that data centres invest in the correct security measures to ensure the safety of their hardware and servers.

Netwatch offers a proactive solution for data centres, which can prevent crime as opposed to simply recording it.
