Server rooms are the heart of operations at universities, where tampering or failure can amount to administrative nightmare. The most modern method in securing IT equipment combines access control with surveillance cameras and intrusion alarm systems.
Kaba's online access control systems
To enhance the security of server rooms, Kaba recommends its Kaba exos access control system. The solution is based on RFID (radio frequency identification) technology, which can be supported with PIN verification and biometric identification if necessary.
Using Kaba exos, a limited number of people are given monitored, time-controlled access to the server rooms. All access is registered real-time in a central system and can be traced back at any time.
Locking mechanisms for rack servers
Rack-level security is achieved using a specially developed locking mechanism, which defends against unauthorised access and can be monitored through the same online access control system. These locks help reduce the number of accidents and mistakes caused by workers, in turn helping to reduce downtime.
