Entertech Helps Implement Biometrics to City Lifeline Data Center Colocation with Suprema BioLite Net

The Entertech solution with Suprema readers has given City Lifeline the ability to demonstrate security and assurance to both their current and potential clients,” says Rob Douglas, Founder and CEO of Entertech

Today Entertech Systems(TM) shared the successful deployment of Suprema biometric hardware for access control at City Lifeline, a provider of data center colocation located in the heart of London’s tech city. Entertech is the official operating partner of Suprema Inc., a global leader in biometrics and securities technology for the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland and Puerto Rico.

With over 28,000 square feet and capacity for over 600 racks in the heart of London’s new Tech City Area, City Lifeline operates to Tier 3 standards of resilience and reliability. An impressive 24 carriers provide data communications to around 90 customers collocated with them. As a secure provider of shared data center space, City Lifeline needed to ensure they could reliably give their clients insights into the access of each area of their facility as well as provide enhanced levels of physical and data security.

“As part of our ISO27001 certification, we are required to operate to very high levels of security in our data centre,” said Ian Tait, Technical Manager of City Lifeline. “The only way to achieve this would be to be forward-thinking in our measures.”

City Lifeline identified Entertech as a good fit in terms of their product, biometric knowledge and internationally available support team who would help get the system up and running quickly. For the devices, City Lifeline chose a combination of Suprema BioEntry Plus and BioLite Net for the flexibility in range and aesthetics, indoor and outdoor certification as well as multi-factor authentication capabilities (fingerprint, card and PIN) which made it easier to address all the access control desires of particular personnel -- clients, visitors and staff (both permanent and contracted).

“The Entertech solution with Suprema readers has given City Lifeline the ability to demonstrate security and assurance to both their current and potential clients,” says Rob Douglas, Founder and CEO of Entertech, “Our goal is also always to provide the professional consulting services and technical support that will make the difference for any company's decision to go biometric, and we were able to do that with City Lifeline.”
