The security objective for any data center should be to deter, detect and delay unauthorized access to the data center by choosing a location, design and routine that ensures a high level of security.
We have developed policies, procedures and an infrastructure that ensures:
- The security of our people
- Physical security of our sites
- Information security of our and our customers’ data
- Protection of our intellectual property
- Protection from fraud
- Business continuity
- Crisis management
Credible threats are identified through a comprehensive risk threat and vulnerability assessment conducted at all current and future sites in the DigiPlex portfolio.
All our facilities offer the very highest level of security as standard. This can be enhanced further for customers that require extra security to meet their specific business needs
What is data center security?
Data center security refers to the physical and virtual practices, policies and measures that protect a data center from external threats and attacks, such as fire, flooding, trespassing and theft.
How secure is a data center?
Instead ask “Is data center security costly?” With a colocation service, the cost of impeccable security is shared by all customers.
Who needs data security?
Everyone! Data is essential to business. If you want to run successfully, you need to keep your information safe and minimize the risk of potential threats.
DigiPlex data center security.
Security is core to our operation. We use advanced security equipment, techniques and procedures to control and monitor access to our Nordic data centers.
Our specific security arrangements at each site may vary, but each will have a multi–layered, integrated security system that features a combination of physical, technical or manned measures. The site’s integrated security arrangements may consist of some or all these logical and physical security arrangements below:
- 24/7/365 site security and manned guarding
- Manned reception during core working hours; Monday to Friday.
- ‘Man-Trap’ access to data center secure area.
- Security policies, procedures and instructions.
- Physical barriers such as perimeter fencing with the intention to deter, detect and delay unauthorized access.
- Vehicle gate operation and management.
- Hostile vehicle mitigation measures.
- Access control system with multi–factor identification that may include integrated biometric verification.
- Intruder detection system.
- Random checks by security staff.
- Closed circuit television (CCTV) with motion detection.
- Security lighting.
All our facilities offer access-controlled racks, cages and halls – additional security layers can be added on request. We ensure that only staff cleared by you have access to your areas, and all access is monitored by the specialist security team.
Location is the key.
The starting point for data center security solutions and risk minimization is location. The Nordic region is known for having very few natural disasters that can disrupt power distribution and infrastructure essential for data center operation.
Physical security and access control.
The latest generation of security systems provide intruder-proof access control. We are very proud that we have never had a breach of physical security in any DigiPlex data center. Each data center is divided into six distinct physical security zones:
- S0 – Open – outside fence.
- S1 – Common Area – outside building but inside fence.
- S2 – Common Area – reception/access control/goods reception/unpacking.
- S3 – Common Area in Building – stairs/lifts/other Common Area inside Building.
- S4 – Gross Area in Building (technical preparations, corridors, storage, technical rooms).
- S5 – White Space
- S6 – Rack
DigiPlex’s operational security assures the permanent uptime of customer equipment. This means uninterruptible power supplies and constantly controlled data hall environments. DigiPlex’s process and procedures are fully documented and externally audited.
