Key Takeaways 

  • InVue Zone Detection bridges the gap between physical and logical security for open server racks in data centers, bolstering overall security. 
  • It offers real-time threat detection and visibility, supported by features like access control and authentication.
  • Drastically reduce the time it takes to investigate a breach as well as the costs associated with correcting it.  

Data centers are vital for storing and managing vast organizational data, including sensitive information that demands strict protection to preserve critical IT infrastructure. As the reliance on data continues to grow, the need to safeguard data centers becomes more critical than ever, not just to protect against cyber threats but also to ensure business continuity in the face of internal threats and disasters. While data centers have robust physical security measures in place to protect against unauthorized access and data breaches, there is often a gap between physical and logical security—especially for data centers that utilize open server racks. This gap leaves data centers vulnerable to a variety of risks, including data theft, sabotage, malware installation, hardware damage and even inadvertent downtime due to human errors. 

 

Understanding the Gap between Physical and Logical Security in Data Center Security

Physical security encompasses tangible measures like access control systems and surveillance cameras to protect against unauthorized access to physical spaces and assets. Logical security, on the other hand, focuses on safeguarding digital assets through software-based measures such as encryption, authentication protocols, and onboard monitoring. While these forms of security are crucial for defending against external threats, they often overlook the risk posed by internal threats—authorized individuals who may misuse their access privileges.

The gap between physical and logical security becomes apparent when considering internal threats. Despite robust security measures, authorized personnel may intentionally or inadvertently compromise security. For instance, an employee with legitimate access credentials might misuse their privileges to steal data or fall victim to social engineering attacks, exposing the organization to risks. Closing this gap requires additional controls, such as user activity monitoring and privilege management, to mitigate the insider threat risk effectively. 

Closing the gap between physical and logical security with InVue Zone Detection is essential for comprehensive security coverage. By addressing the risk posed by internal threats, organizations can strengthen their overall security and better protect sensitive data and assets from both external and internal risks. 

Introducing InVue’s Zone Detection 

InVue’s Zone Detection is a cutting-edge solution that combines an array of Class 1 lasers running proprietary Time-of-Fight (ToF) algorithms to create a high-density detection plane that is resistant to tampering and falsification. Utilizing our OneKEY for access control, the two solutions combined wrap your server racks in an invisible shield against internal threats. 

Here’s the game-changer: it’s not just about keeping the fortress secure; it’s about being lightning-fast when trouble knocks. Real-time alerts mean you can spot and tackle breaches before they escalate, saving you both money and precious downtime. So, while it’s locking down your data, it’s also keeping your budget in check. 

Key Features of InVue’s Zone Detection 

1. Real-time Threat Detection: InVue Zone Detection provides real-time threat detection, instantly alerting managers to unauthorized access attempts. 

2. Easy to Install: Zone Detection consists of a row of sensors, access control point, and a reflective strip that is easy to install. Adhere the sensor to the top of an open frame server rack using bolts or a uni-strut. It takes minutes, substantially reducing downtime. 

3. Enhanced Compatibility: ZDU can integrate with various data center components and software so there’s never a lapse in functionality and security. 

4. Prompt Incident Response: In addition to an audible alarm, alerts are sent directly to your device, so you’re notified no matter where you are. With instant alerts and a visible audit trail of access attempts, it enables prompt incident response, essential for maintaining the security posture of data centers. 

5. Robust Authentication: InVue’s Zone Detection employs our patented OneKEY for authentication and access control. Because of advanced sensors and algorithms, the system is completely tamper-proof.
