Prefab Data Centre Security & Access Control

An integral part of any Prefab Data Centre infrastructure is physical security due to its direct role in maximising system availability. It achieves this by reducing downtime from accidents or sabotage due to the possibility of unnecessary persons (or those with malicious intent) gaining access.

We offer clients with options based on ‘what you have’, ‘what you know’, and ‘who you are’. Systems range from a simple lock and key to computer activated proximity card controllers and pin code devices. Combined with IP Camera monitoring, a flexible approach can be designed to support client demands.
