Intelligent Physical Rack Security
Rack Armor TM Intelligent Physical Rack Security tells you WHO accesses your server racks, WHERE, WHEN and HOW LONG. 

No doubt your physical security starts at the perimeter fence and then extends in layers to the outside of the building, the core of the building, each floor and finally to the server rooms themselves.  But what happens once access to the server room is obtained? The security layers stop when you enter the area where the actual data is stored.  Most data racks are only secured with a simple mechanical lock which can easily be breached.  Rack Armor provides a complete security solution at the individual rack level.

Robust Security
With Rack Armor TM , it is easy to restrict and monitor access to server racks at the cabinet level. Rack Armor will let you identify who accessed specific racks and track the time the cabinet door was open.

Alarm Notification
Rack Armor TM will automatically send an email alert, sound an alarm or call -up video if the server cabinets are unlocked and unsecured.

Easy Reporting
A comprehensive reports generator allows customised audit reports so that you have detailed information of all your rack usage. 


Features & Benefits

Dynamic Mapping provides a graphical display of your data centre so you can instantly visualise the security status of your server racks across multiple locations.

The Rack Action screen provides instant verification of the security status for both the front and back doors of each cabinet. Icons clearly display the status of the door, lock and swing handle.

Icons clearly show if a door is forced, a key is used or the door has been left unlocked and these events can trigger an email alert, sound an alarm or open up video.

The Report Generator will allows you to quickly and easily obtain detailed information of individual rack access. Filter transactions by customer, cardholder name, rack name and more. Link transactions to recorded video.

View live or recorded video linked of specific transactions instantly from the end-user dynamic mapping interface. Store video logs for future reference.
