Highly secure data centres
Protecting your business assets
Strictly controlled access ensures that we have some of the most secure data centre facilities in the industry.
The security of your business-critical data and systems is our primary concern. To this end, we have a permanent manned security presence at all of our data centres and use multi-layered physical security including a secure perimeter, biometrics and video surveillance.
Entry to each facility is tightly controlled – with strict procedures in place to monitor and control visitor access both into and within the data centre. Extensive CCTV video camera surveillance is in place across each facility, along with security breach alarms, biometric checks and controlled physical barriers.
Access to the buildings, data floors and individual areas is via individually programmed access cards – using biometrics and visual identification – ensuring secure, single-person entry. Standardised procedures ensure that you and your nominated staff can gain access to your equipment whenever required, day or night.
High security standards
To underline our commitment to security best practice, we have achieved the ISO27001:2005 Security Management standard, which ensures the proper selection of adequate and proportionate security controls to protect all information assets in our data centres.
Our UK data centres are audited by the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure, the Government authority which provides protective security advice to businesses and organisations across the national infrastructure.
Payment card security
The PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) represents a common set of industry tools and measurements to help ensure the safe handling of sensitive information and is intended to help organisations proactively protect customer account data. Each of our data centres in France, the Netherlands and the UK are certified as compliant with the PCI DSS standard which helps to ensure the safe handling of cardholder information at every step.
Our new 9MW AMS 5 data centre provides an environment with fully redundant and resilient power, energy efficient cooling, extensive security and maximum connectivity.
