Need High Data Security? Why A Private Data Center is Best

By December 16, 2014 What We DO No Comments

Data security has never been a higher priority. Malicious threats are becoming more sophisticated and more tenacious, while new regulations are mandating higher levels of security and consumers are becoming ever less tolerant of any mistake. If you deal with sensitive information of any kind, you understand how grave the consequences could be if your security were compromised. Here’s why relying on a private data center is your best option:

  1. Built for Security. Unless you built a new facility within the last decade and made a major investment in security, your office is likely not as secure as a private data center. Off-site facilities have expansive surveillance, multiple strategies for access control, and 24/7 guard patrols. They were designed from the ground up to restrict access to anyone who doesn’t have express security clearance.
  2. Easy Auditing. In the highly unlikely event of a security breach, you will want to be able to audit the procedures in place in order to glean as much information as possible about the source of the breach and the motives of the offending party. Thanks to CCTV, biometric scanners, sign-in procedures, and human monitoring, a private data center has the tools you need to track down the culprit.
  3. Cost-Effective Safeguards. You have probably realized by now that your facility is not as secure as it needs to be. Unfortunately, the cost of installing an expansive, round-the-clock security network is exorbitant. Relying on a private data center allows you to share this cost with a pool of other clients, allowing each to pay significantly less than you would individually.
  4. Focus on All Threats. Hackers and viruses aren’t the only threats you need to be worried about. Fires, floods, failed cooling systems, and power outages can be just as detrimental. A private data center will be able to protect you from all of these dangers, even when one is compounded by another. That means your data is secure from all threats no matter how remote the danger may be.
