In the IT world, you’ll hear that word almost daily.
But it’s more than just firewalls and cybersecurity.
Guarding your physical equipment inside the data center is also vital.
At FIBERTOWN, we take care of your physical security so you can focus on your network and growing your company.
Best in class security measures
While it might seem like the most important part of security is to lock down your digital access, the physical side is just as important.
Is your data center protecting you?
Unauthorized access to your servers or equipment can trigger massive problems for companies.
Make sure that your physical security is just as top-of-the-line as your cybersecurity.
Here’s a list of the top 5 ways we keep our clients’ equipment safe inside our data centers in Houston and Bryan, Texas.
Our facilities start with a guard-controlled entrance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. You can count on our security team to follow scheduled protocols for our buildings. Our 24/7 on-site NOC and security teams perform multiple walkthroughs of the interior and exterior of our properties every single day.
Difficult physical access points.
When we designed the buildings, we took security up a notch. Architectural man traps were designed between the exterior of our buildings and the interior. We also have a single entry/exit with secure alarmed emergency exits.
Not only do we require badged entry with multi-factor authentication, but it’s required for each access area.
First, to get into the interior of the building, second, to go up the elevator, and third, to get into the data center suite. We do not allow any unauthorized entry.
Locked cabinets and cages.
Our cabinets require locks, and our cages have a keyed entrance; some even require access with a key, badge, and a biometric lock. If you’re interested in the second-tier security access for your gear, ask our team about how to upgrade.
24/7 monitored video surveillance.
We always monitor our facilities with 24/7 video and a digital archive. Access reports are also maintained and can be sent to clients to ensure only authorized members will get in.
While we generally don’t have locked cabinets or cages in our disaster recovery office space, all of the other security measures apply.
Physical security is important at FIBERTOWN.
It’s just another way we offer our customers peace of mind; so you can focus on what you do best — running your company.
