How secure is secure? Pt. 2 - Building Security

We are continuing to look at the security of data centres and what it takes to be truly secure. After site selection, looking at the construction of a data centre is the next step in ensuring maximum possible security. The building construction and the location of entrances play a huge role in data centre security. From an environmental perspective, having windows in a data centre have a negative effect of the buildings insulation and from a security point of view, they provide a weaker point of entry into a facility. The entrances to a facility should be manned 24/7 to prevent any unauthorised access, but while many companies spend large amounts of money on man traps and biometrics to regulate entry through the front doors, often not as much care is taken over the back doors.

Fire exits should not have door furniture on the outside to prevent unauthorised entry and should be linked to an alarm at the security desk.
Controlling access into a data centre is often a gruelling activity for visitors and engineers who need to visit the facility on a regular occurrence. Ensuring that the correct procedures are followed to prevent unauthorised access maintains a secure data centre. Enforcing anti-tailback entry points with location monitoring allows security staff to record the number of personnel in the data centre and their positions as they move around it.
