Data Center Security and Monitoring for Servers Housing Personal Information and Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance is becoming an ever-more important consideration for many IT managers. As the regulations regarding security and access to servers that may contain credit card information, financial records, or personal information become more strict, Data Center Managers are searching for solutions that ensure the highest possible level of security. Frequently, that includes video monitoring but should also include sensors that detect when a cabinet door has been opened, who had access to the room, and how long they were in there. Some systems allow you to program locks so racks stay secure during off-hours when cleaning personnel may be in the data center. Human error is the greatest threat to data center security and protecting your data from physical threats is critical.
