Rack Access Control
Rack access control is provided using products from TZ, a leading provider of micro security systems for securing and controlling access to 19in racks. Racks can be deployed or retro-fitted with the TZ SlideHandle™ and controlled by either the standalone TZ Centurion™ system or the TZ Praetorian™ system that can interface to existing building access control systems. Each system can be configured so individuals can only access racks specific to them. A full audit trail provides information of which racks have been accessed, by whom, when they were accessed and for how long. In the event of an unauthorised access, an alert can be sent notifying of the breach in security.
Biometric Swipe Card
EDP Europe’s Biometric Swipe Card provides a dual level of authentication without the need of investing in the replacement of existing card reader infrastructure. The card is enrolled in the same way as existing contactless cards but has on-board biometric fingerprint technology that ties the card to a specific individual. Being unique to an individual user, the card only communicates and provides access when the card owner activates it with their fingerprint. All biometric data is stored on the card eliminating the need to store and mange biometric data. Biometric access cards are compatible with Mifare, HID, iClass, DESfire & Legic CTC.
Rack Surveillance CCTV
To reinforce the physical security provided by the TZ system, the RackANGEL solution adds another level of visibility and security with the introduction of in-rack surveillance cameras which provide real-time or historical footage of both authorised and unauthorised events.
