Boon Edam shares the benefits of its data center inputs

entradas seguras en centros de datos

International. Boon Edam Inc shared the positive results its secure entry solution for risk mitigation and compliance has had in mission-critical data centers around the world.

According to the company, overlaying Boon Edam's secure entry solutions at all data center perimeter entry and exit points, as well as critical internal access points, provides the strongest possible physical security measures to mitigate unauthorized access.

That is, "layered security inputs ensure compliance with government and industry regulations while reducing operating costs."

Mark Perkins, vice president of strategic market development at Boon Edam, commented on this solution:
"Data center managers have three critical responsibilities: protecting their customers' sensitive data, ensuring compliance with government and industry regulations, and minimizing operating costs. Our secure entry solutions address all three by physically securing access points to deliver ROI through the reduction or reallocation of on-call costs, while maintaining compliance with government, industry and/or enterprise-mandated standards."

It's important to note that data centers can achieve higher levels of cybersecurity by layering Boon Edam's secure access solutions.

A data center surrounded by a security fence equipped with a full-height turnstile for employee access prevents infiltration of perimeter entrances. Security revolving doors and man-trap portals installed in a data center lobby can detect unauthorized entry attempts, including piggybacking and tailgating to prevent unauthorized access in real time, and trigger visual, audible, and electronic notification via PACs.

For the protection of the most sensitive areas in a data center, security portals equipped with biometric multi-factor authentication technology impose a single input confirmed by means of an aerial sensor system called StereoVision.

Once a user presents their credentials and the door opens, StereoVision scans the compartment and verifies that the user is alone. Within the portal, an internal biometric device can be used to verify identity, confirming that not only a person enters, but the correct person.

Specifically, Boon Edam's secure entry helps ensure data centers maintain compliance with the Gramm-Leach-Bliley-Act (GLBA), the newly updated FTC Safeguards Rule, FISMA, ISO 27001, HITRUST, PCI DSS, SOC 1, SOC 2, SOC 3, and ITAR.

Automating compliance with physical barrier entry/exit points reduces security training and operational expenses while enabling data centers to better sustain ongoing operations.

Different solutions
Boon Edam's full-height turnstiles, security revolving doors, and security portals further avoid forced open door (DFO) and open door (DHO) alarms for easy compliance reporting. In that sense, data centers can achieve higher levels of cybersecurity by implementing layers of secure access solutions.

So, if a data center surrounded by a security fence equipped with a full-height turnstile for employee access prevents infiltration of perimeter entrances, with security revolving doors and man-trap portals installed in the lobby of a data center, unauthorized entry attempts can be detected, including piggybacking and tailgating. This, in short, prevents unauthorized access in real time, and activates a visual, audible and electronic notification through PACs.

For the protection of the most sensitive areas in a data center, security portals equipped with biometric multi-factor authentication technology impose a single input confirmed by means of an aerial sensor system called StereoVision. "Once a user presents their credentials and the door opens, StereoVision scans the compartment and verifies that the user is alone. Within the portal, an internal biometric device can be used to verify identity, confirming that not only a person enters, but the correct person."

Boon Edam's secure entry solutions help ensure data centers remain compliant with the Gramm-Leach-Bliley-Act (GLBA), the newly updated FTC Safeguards Rule, FISMA, ISO 27001, HITRUST, PCI DSS, SOC 1, SOC 2, SOC 3, and ITAR.

Incidentally, automating compliance with physical barrier entry/exit points reduces security training and operational expenses while enabling data centers to better sustain ongoing operations.

In conclusion, Boon Edam's full-height turnstiles, security revolving doors, and security portals further avoid forced open door (DFO) and open door (DHO) alarms for easy compliance reporting.

NTT Case Study
NTT, Ltd. (formerly RagingWire), one of the world's largest and fastest-growing data centers, uses Boon Edam Tourlock 180 security revolving doors at its Ashburn VA3 data center, which has 245,000 square feet of space, and its Sacramento CA3 data center, a 180,000-square-foot facility.

Such revolving security doors provide efficient passage for hundreds of people every day in NTT's data centers, preventing them from being closely followed during entry and exit.

Eddie Ankers, NTT's vice president of corporate security, commented, "Our customers expect our security inputs and anti-taxiing technologies to be extremely fast and accurate," he said, "By adding these doors to our defense-in-depth security strategy, we are providing the best possible protection system for our customers' mission-critical equipment."
