Why Use Biometric Security on Server Cabinets?

Biometric security is more reliable than other common types of server cabinet security.

Data centers often house sensitive government information that requires mission-critical security for protection. This means that data centers often lead the demand for cutting-edge security technology. Access control systems are one of the best security measures for ensuring that the right employees have access to the correct areas. And when it comes to data centers, you can’t have too much security. That is why several data centers are being equipped with biometric security, from the front doors of the facility right down to the individual server cabinets. This amount of security may seem strict, but it in fact will ensure that only qualified individuals have access to certain server cabinets. And the peace-of-mind that comes with this level of security is priceless.

Easy and Secure Access Control

Most server cabinets are provided much less security than the front doors of the facility. Generally, server cabinets are secured by surrounding them in a cage or cabinet with a mechanical keyed lock. Some server cabinets feature proximity readers. However, these common types of security risk that a keycard could end up in the wrong hands or an audit trail could be disputable.

With biometric security, you can rely on extremely accurate identification without the same risks associated with using multiple types of access control. Consider these benefits:

  • Simplified security administration: There are no keys or keycards to keep track of, which minimizes the risk of keys or keycards getting into the wrong hands. Simply make changes using the manufacturer software.
  • Reduced opportunities for breaches: Biometric security eliminates access enablers that can become separated from the user. This ensures a lower chance of security breaches.
  • Indisputable audit trail: The audit trail that is recorded by the biometric security system records and reports each instance of each individual’s access of any server cabinet.
