Data Centres drive progress and productivity across the digital world. Storing, processing and analysing vast quantities of essential information, it’s vital that these hives of digital activity are shielded against physical and cyber threats. With many years of Data Centre security management, we understand the risks and responsibilities.
Clients rely on our specialist services for safety and security in data centres of every size, from the small server room of an individual business through to Tier 5 hyperscale centres that manage billions of bytes of data daily. Our range of security solutions integrate and combine human expertise and intelligence with advanced technologies, to protect the operations and reputations of Data Centres across Europe.
Our Data Centre security officers are trained to detect and deter threats to the building, staff, equipment, and integrity of the data itself. These officers all complete our Certified Data Centre Security Professional Course, a bespoke training programme that ensures they really understand the unique demands of Data Centre safety management. They are alert to threats of every kind, including data tampering or theft, and potential hazards such as floods, fires, or overheated servers.
High-tech electronic security systems
Using state of the art equipment and back-office expertise, we provide real-time remote surveillance and response across the data centre environment via a range of technologies including: Remote video surveillance – internal and external/perimeter
Some clients ask us for an end-to-end remote service which includes supply, installation, monitoring and maintenance of remote systems, while others choose to use us for monitoring and management services only.
Alarm monitoring and response services are provided by the Securitas Operations Centre (SOC) in Milton Keynes. Trained staff monitor alarms 24/7 which include intruder detection, fire, and access control systems.
Cyber security services
The Securitas Intelligence Unit (SIU) extends the reach of our Data Centre security expertise beyond the physical to the world of cyber security. Our experienced intelligence officers use a global network of open sources (OSINT), social media (SOCMINT) and closed sources (including private sector intelligence, military, policing and academia) to provide early warning of cyber activity that might pose a threat to the data centre.
