In the current climate, a company’s business success depends to an ever greater extent on digital systems. Production downtime used to be acceptable, but companies now need to be able to rely on the digital control systems running their production facilities at all times. A permanently available IT infrastructure is therefore one of the most important factors in efficient production.
IT security is absolutely essential in sectors that are classified as critical infrastructure because they process highly sensitive data and need extremely reliable IT systems. Comprehensive security solutions for critical infrastructure offer multifunctional protection against both physical risks and cyber threats, thereby ensuring business can run smoothly.
Design data, data relating to sensitive business processes and data that keep production going must be protected against various risks, including dust, fire and water. There are other physical risks too, such as power cuts or cooling system failures, which cause temperatures inside data centres to rise.
Cyber threats cover a wide range of risks, from Denial of Service (DoS) attacks to Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs). A Denial of Service attack is when a hacker encrypts production data and demands a ransom for it. Advanced Persistent Threats, on the other hand, are attacks that aim to gain permanent access to a network (and other systems) to obtain data or commit sabotage. The latter can have serious consequences – criminals can then tamper remotely with cooling solutions or UPS systems or even shut them down entirely.
Can your IT infrastructure withstand attack vectors?
Use our Smart IT check to find out now!
Before we can conduct a reliable analysis and provide you with recommendations for steps you can take to boost your IT security, we need to know as much as possible about your IT infrastructure’s physical set-up.
The Smart IT check is an online questionnaire that you can use to tell us about the architecture of your IT environment, your existing physical IT infrastructure, how your information security is currently organised and how your IT systems are run. Once you have completed the questionnaire, one of our qualified IT Specialists will get in touch to talk you through the optimisation potential that has been identified and explain how the risk factors associated with your IT infrastructure can be reduced to a minimum. Take advantage of our advice now! It’s free of charge and there’s no obligation .
Micro Data Centers – flexible IT security safes
Micro Data Centers are a range of security safes in various designs that provide a protective enclosure for one or more server racks. Thanks to their modular construction, our solutions are suitable for installation in hard-to-access locations. If your IT infrastructure grows or you relocate, every IT safe can be individually adapted and re-assembled, thereby ensuring maximum flexibility and future-proofing your investment. A Micro Data Center can very quickly be installed in the smallest of spaces and upgraded with the various components and accessories to suit your needs.
The small data centre that provides optimum protection for one or more server racks.
At a glance – the benefits for you:
- Maximum security for your IT infrastructure
- Modular construction for installation in hard-to-access locations
