Data security has been growing in importance as society continues to progress towards a more digital world. According to a 2017 study that was conducted by IBM and Ponemon Institute, the average cost of a single data breach incident decreased by 10% between 2016 and 2017 to around $3.6 million dollars. The news isn't all positive. The decrease was mostly attributed to the strength of the US dollar. Even still, $3.6+ million is an expense that most organizations simply cannot afford.
Yet when many people think of data security, they think of the software measures that need to be put in place to protect data in its virtual form. What they don't think about are the physical measures that must be deployed to protect the actual data centers that house confidential information around the world. With Raritan’s SmartLock Door Access Control System, this is exactly the type of issue addressed.

Data center downtime can have a catastrophic effect on your daily business and direct impact to your organization. According to one study, they found an astounding 93% of all enterprises who suffer from data center downtime for more than 10 days file for bankruptcy within a year. This is in large part because of the costs associated with downtime being so high. The Ponemon Institute estimates the average cost of downtime is $5,600 per minute and $336,000 per hour.
Unfortunately, these are precisely the kinds of consequences you're looking at if you allow your data center to continue to run on legacy IT equipment, especially vital PDUs. PDUs are designed for uptime and efficiency - two things that help mitigate risks associated with the types of disasters that lead to failures. If your PDUs can’t immediately communicate power failures, alert for other operational malfunctions, or provide you with real-time, accurate power capacity information your entire data center (as well as its customers, and your reputation) could be in jeopardy.
