Challenge and Solution
A data center must guarantee both network security and physical security. Not only data loss, but also data tampering or theft are threats that cause both financial damage and harm the company’s reputation. In addition, the equipment housed in a data center is highly sensitive, so that defined humidity and temperature values must be maintained, for example. Fire protection is another aspect, as in some cases extinguishing systems using chemical extinguishing agents are more suitable than sprinkler systems in the event of a fire. This means that a whole range of security and building management technologies is used in a data center.
The PSIM system WinGuard enables unified control of all technologies via a user-friendly interface.
