Research from TechNavio, an independent tech-focused global research firm, shows the Global Data Center Physical Security Market is growing in tandem with the increasing number of data centers worldwide, and increasing threats to these centers. Senior analysts forecast the market to grow at a CAGR of 22.93 percent from 2014-2018.
Data center physical security can generally be broken down into five categories Physical security information management (PSIM) software, access management, biometrics, surveillance and disaster management.
“Increasing instances of security breaches, which cause of physical damage to data center facilities are leading to adoption of more stringent data center physical security measures among enterprises,” say senior TechNavio analysts.
“There is a need for higher security measures to ensure physical security of the data centers, and enterprises are establishing minimum security standards to better protect their data. Security points in data center facilities are being incorporated with multiple security scanning protocols which are at once improving security of these data centers and boosting market projections over the forecast period.”
Systems such as two-factor authentication and access control are being implemented to ensure that no unauthorized personnel gain access to data centers.
In addition to human threats, one of the major threats to data center security is the high heat generated by such immense computing power.
In order to cope with this, sophisticated air handling solutions are being developed in to ensure the temperature environment in data centers remains stable. Precision air conditioning systems include highly sensitive sensors to identify hotspots in the data center facility, and control cooling accordingly. The market is seeing more penetration of such air handling solutions in order to maintain optimal temperature and air quality, and guarantee high productivity in data center computing infrastructure.
