As the Internet of Things continues to explode, the International Data Corporation expects the annual size of the global datasphere to reach 160 zettabytes by 2025. Increased data will naturally cause data center growth - the value inside the data center will continue to grow, as will the number of people with access to that data center. Not only are outside threats a concern, but every person in the facility is capable of posing an accidental or intentional threat to the enclosure, the equipment and service uptime. Despite security measures throughout the data center facility (entrance to the building, reception and so on), there is often nothing protecting the data enclosure and the equipment inside.
With a documented rise in insider threats and the lack of awareness of this possible risk, a complete and balanced defense must be implemented. This vigilant approach must consist of physical server enclosures and robust security practices that seamlessly combine to protect one's most critical asset - data. Through the use of multi-factor authentication, security operations center (SOC) remote monitoring capabilities and real-time auditing practices, a watchful eye is now placed on individuals who have unfiltered access to the server equipment.
Great Lakes Case & Cabinet has engineered and manufactured SEAL® enclosures, multi-functional and fully customizable enclosure solutions that not only secure your data and equipment with state-of-the-art locking mechanisms and solid steel construction, but provide additional security features that further increase the protection level of the equipment and data. Manufactured and assembled in the United States using American-made components, SEAL offers three security levels depending on the exact degree of protection required to safeguard your data. In addition to the standard three security levels, SEAL provides a fourth level with the ability to fully customize a physical security solution to meet your unique protection needs. Regardless of the level of protection selected, the goal of SEAL is simple: help you achieve a level of protection that fits within your budget, meets or exceeds your physical security requirements and provides a desired level of risk mitigation.
SEAL is launching on January 8th. Great Lakes Case & Cabinet has created a white paper about the potential threats to your data center and how to mitigate them with the SEAL enclosure solution. Click here to download this free white paper.
