“Because data centres hold very sensitive and proprietary information, such as intellectual property and customer data, sites have to be both digitally and physically secured,” said Laura Chite, CEO CIO East Africa, who will be moderating the one -hour session on data centre security. Adding, “Data centres provide services such as data storage, backup and recovery, data management and networking thus must be safe at all times.”
The Forcepoint notes that datacenter security can either be physical in which case, access into a data centre facility is somewhat limited by erecting outside perimeters and having relatively few entry points, or software, where data is cushioned against hacking malware and spyware. It adds that creating secure zones in the network is one way to layer security into the data centre. “The most effective security solutions for data centres is including both physical and virtual security tools,” it states. Since the equipment housed in the datacentre is as sensitive as it is bulky, security components must be considered separately with one holistic security policy.
