Title: Top 5 Ways Data Centers Can Increase Data Security
“Given its intrinsic core value, maintaining the security of data is crucial for the success of any business” (Databank, 2020). Data centers house the most significant documents, information, and connection that allows your business to stay afloat. Of course it makes sense to want these data centers to hold the best security defenses in order to safeguard customer data and infrastructure. However, what are some ways in which your data center can increase its data security?
Look no further than this case study by Databank which details five ways in which they can ensure the security of your data center.
Databank recognizes that the physical security of your data center is imperative to its protection. Through the deployment of multi-layered security access methods, including visual inspections from multiple 24-7 guard stations and video monitoring, as well as enabling restrictive physical access into the data centers, will ultimately act as utmost protection for your data centers.
Maintaining data centers and staying online is a large part of ensuring the capabilities of data security for businesses. What’s most significant is building a platform that will uphold connectivity of the data center’s online access and networks, which includes integrating a Tier III infrastructure classification that allows “data center operators to perform regular maintenance on power equipment and regularly test capacity and failover without interrupting ongoing operations.”
Databank ensures successful compliance and efficient audits, through the enablement of monitoring and management that allows for your higher-ups to review business processes and productivity, honing in on performance and effectiveness levels.
