Articles that Enrich and Expand on Physical Security Technologies

Data Center Security

Data centers are the engine that drives the digital economy. Uninterrupted, continuous operation is critical to maintaining the services that an always-connected society relies on. Maintaining customer trust in the protection and availability of their data requires facility operators to offer the highest level of physical security. Physical nonenvironmental threats include unauthorized access, vandalism, theft, and terrorism. By taking a multi-layered approach to physical security, facility operators can keep customer data secure while meeting business requirements and security best practices.

Recognizing that different facilities face different security requirements, Senstar offers a wide range of video management, perimeter intrusion detection, access control, and video analytic solutions. Individually, they provide best-in-class protection; used in combination and managed under the Senstar Symphony Common Operating Platform, they form an integrated, multi-layered solution.

Senstar Symphony provides a unified interface for all video surveillance, security management, and access control functions. Its support for open interfaces enables it to be integrated with third-party security and I/O devices.

Data Center Perimeter Security

Protecting the perimeter of a site is the first line of defence. Perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS) provide early warning of unauthorized entry and offer organizations the following benefits:

• Reliable and effective detection
• Low nuisance alarm rates
• Integration with deterrence devices (lights, sirens) and assessment devices (cameras, analytics, other sensors)
• Effective response to security events using critical information obtained from sensors and surveillance systems

Facility Management/Cabinet Monitoring/Server Room Monitoring
Facility management encompasses many aspects related to the facility’s security, safety, and efficiency. Access control, video analytics, security lighting, and intrusion sensors can ensure any unauthorized access to the building, server rooms, or even individual cabinets is detected and monitored.

Dataline Security
Fiber optic sensors detect third-party interference (TPI) to fiber optic data links and other cable infrastructures. Classification abilities can indicate the nature of the intrusion, including the presence of heavy machinery, vehicle traffic, machine and human digging, and direct tampering of the cable conduit.
