Southco will deliver a presentation on physical security solutions for data centers at the 2014 BICSI Winter Conference in Orlando, Florida on Wednesday, Feb. 5. Securing and Monitoring Physical Access at the Rack Level in Your Datacenter will be presented by Southco’s own Steve Spatig, general manager, Electronic Access Solutions (EAS) and Mike Fahy, Business Development Manager, EAS, who will also exhibit at Booth #1031 from Feb. 2-6.

Today’s data centers demand an increased level of physical security to comply with strict data protection regulations. While many data centers have appropriate cyber systems in place to protect access to digital information, security measures for protecting physical access to assets within the data center IT room often fall short.

During the presentation, Southco experts will focus on networked solutions that provide remote control and monitoring of physical access down to the rack level from any location.

“Quick confirmation of physical access credentials is crucial in the event of a security breach, especially when faced with penalties and steep fines for non-compliance with data protection laws. Rack level electronic access solutions can supplement building and logical data security, streamline server access and provide remote monitoring to an individual rack by way of addressable access points,” said Spatig.
