The changing landscape of 21st century data centre security

With over 23 billion IoT connected devices worldwide, UK data centre capacity is forecast to store data worth over £104bn annually by 2025 to cope with the ever growing reliance on secure electronic data transfer and storage, cloud based services and critical M2M connectivity. With land at a premium, data centre operators no longer have the luxury of cherry picking their sites and are increasingly forced to consider more densely populated locations, including residential areas.

Experience and Expertise

Over the past 10 years we have invested heavily in the R&D, testing, manufacture and certification of a variety of novel and effective perimeter fencing and gate systems which offer ‘smarter’ solutions than the generic mesh or palisade security systems widely available.

The resulting products from our high security portfolio offer LPS1175 certified ratings from SR 1 through to SR5, approved for UK Government Use fencing and gates up to the highest level, Hostile Vehicle Mitigation protection to PAS 68, and National Offender Management Service (NOMS) approved perimeter intrusion detection system – most of which additionally meet with ‘Police Preferred Specification’ through Secured by Design.

These products have already been employed in some of the most sensitive and secure establishments in the UK and export markets including an ever increasing number of security aware data centres; providing them with perimeter security solutions which work effectively and reliably 24/7, 365 days a year with the minimum of maintenance and a long service life.

Kao Data Centre Case Study

Kao London One, situated at the heart of the London-Stansted-Cambridge corridor, is one of the UK’s most advanced data centres.

The first phase of the £200million data centre campus was completed at the start of 2018 and required a robust and extensive high security perimeter solution.

To meet the stringent security requirements of the 32,000sqm site, we installed 172 metres of Securi Mesh Plus SR2, galvanised and polyester powder coated RAL 6005 (green), three matching bi-folding speed gates to control access and egress to the site and three 4 metres rising arm barriers.
