Just as some integrators focus on certain vertical markets, some security service firms are focusing on data center security for government and other clients.

A case in point is SeeView Security, addressing the needs of large-scale data centers, which are increasingly calling for cloud computing applications. The company covers enhanced physical security for the data center as well as the individual racks and servers operating within such facilities. For years SeeView security has been providing video security and access control solutions for various governmental customers with extremely challenging security needs. The firm’s Daniel McKinney comments, “We find that megapixel IP-based camera systems can often be used to identify and troubleshoot problems, which can often reduce or eliminate the need to send personnel to the data center.”
