As cybersecurity evolves, physical data center security becomes more important.

1. Perimeter Security

Establishing a robust first line of defense at the building perimeter is vital; tall barriers, natural surveillance through landscaping, access control systems, and high-definition surveillance both detect and deter potential threats surrounding the building. 

2. Building-Level Security

As the second layer of defense, building-level security focuses on controlling access to the facility. Limiting entry points, implementing access control systems, and utilizing visitor management systems help prevent unauthorized individuals from accessing sensitive areas.

3. Security for White Space and Gray Space

Protecting the white space dedicated to IT equipment and the gray space housing back-end equipment is another essential factor to take into consideration. Implementing access control systems, surveillance, and authentication measures can help mitigate risks posed by both external and insider threats.

4. Cabinet- and Rack-Level Security

The final layer of data center security involves securing cabinets to prevent unauthorized access to critical equipment. Security measures such as keyed cabinet systems, access card authentication, and in-cabinet cameras help ensure that only authorized personnel have access to specific areas.

Remember, to effectively protect your data center, the physical layer of your network infrastructure must be able support these security technologies. Ensuring seamless connectivity and transmission is crucial for the optimal performance of your security systems.
