Devon, PA (PRWEB) June 02, 2011
DecisionOne - a Glodyne Company – and IT infrastructure management services provider, today announced it is offering a new solution designed to enhance existing physical security systems within and surrounding the data center. In partnership with engineering design firm Digitus Biometrics, DecisionOne now provides centrally managed biometric access control systems to protect data centers, cages and individual racks.
As a result, clients now have available to them a real-time system to monitor access to individual server, storage and network devices, and provide immediate identifications of any physical security breaches. The system also provides a physical access audit trail for compliance reporting. The result is a virtually impregnable physical security screen around clients’ IT assets to prevent any physical access loss of private information.
“Data privacy is a priority for all organizations. Historically, virtual access to data has been the higher vulnerability threat within the overall security plan. However, there have been and will continue to be significant improvements in virtual access. The emphasis is refocusing on physical access at the individual device level,” said Ken Murray, SVP, Sales and Marketing, DecisionOne. “Customers have trusted DecisionOne for decades to provide infrastructure services that assess, design, implement and maintain their data storage equipment and protect their private information. Our partnership with Digitus Biometrics is a natural extension to the suite of turnkey services we provide to ensure superior data center operability and security.”
As part of the solution, DecisionOne offers the following services:
o Physical IT access control assessment
o Biometric hardware/software solution design
o Implementation and testing
o Administrator training
o Software support
o Onsite hardware maintenance
“Digitus has spent years perfecting networked biometric access control, from the front door to the server cabinet door,” said David Orischak, Digitus CEO. “Data center managers and operators will benefit greatly by having such a skilled partner as DecisionOne deliver the best physical security solutions available for their environment.”
