Datacentre Security Fencing Update August 2016
Datacentres have become a modern day necessity in this digital age, with an ever expanding high tech and global economy influencing everything in our life from instant access to the web, and smart phones that store our entire life, to the latest trends such as Pokemon Go!
These digital fortresses are no longer restricted to closets or basements. Many IT service providers are spending billions on cloud aware networks, and the modern facilities to store this digital infrastructure .Many of these Datacentres are now considered critical to modern organisations and as such should be protected by the latest in physical security equipment.
Access Control, Perimeter Intrusion Detection Systems, CCTV and lighting play a vital role when combined with a CPNI rated security fencing system creating a ‘layered’ security approach. Many reports and standards are available when looking at securing datacentres. However, these do not go into detail about the first line of defence… A Datacentres perimeter security fence.
The days of securing Datacentres with aesthetically pleasing mesh panels, chainlink systems or anything else offered as a cheap solution should be a thing of the past. Securing critical infrastructure demands security fencing that is designed and tested for that key purpose.
With CPNI rated Security Fencing at both Base and Enhanced, Lochrin Bain have a range of products available. An example of this is our high security Combi™ Palisade fencing which uses all the benefits of a traditional palisade fence enhanced with our patented ‘V’ slot and counter sunk anti vandal fixing. A truly unique security fencing product, designed in conjunction with the Home Office for CNI sites nationwide.
