Southco will deliver a presentation on physical security for data centres at the 2014 BICSI Winter Conference in Orlando, Fla. on Wednesday, Feb. 5.

Securing and Monitoring Physical Access at the Rack Level in Your Data Centre will be presented by Southco’s general manager, Steve Spatig, general manager, Electronic Access Solutions (EAS) and Mike Fahy, business development manager, EAS.

According to a Southco release, today’s data centres demand an increased level of physical security to comply with strict data protection regulations.

“While many data centres have appropriate cyber systems in place to protect access to digital information, security measures for protecting physical access to assets within the datacenter IT room often fall short.”

“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.
