Data Center Physical Security at the Rack

Posted on November 29, 2017 by Rick Gonedes

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.
