Data centers require physical security measures to remain safe from threats, such as server damage or insider risk, among others. In 2019, a NASDAQ-listed data center company wanted to design, install and maintain an integrated security solution for its new site located 40 miles outside of the capital city, Muscat.
The data center company selected G4S to cover building and perimeter surveillance as well as staff and visitor access control. The data center needed all systems to be accessible on a single platform for use by the company’s in-house security team.
Video management and access control systems from AMAG Technology were installed, including technologies such as thermal and infrared cameras, gate automation systems and alarm systems. During installation, a team of engineers and technicians was assigned to the project site to supervise the security installation as the building structure started taking shape.
The data center is now used by some of the most recognizable tech brands in the world. G4S continues to carry out periodic maintenance checks and also provides 24/7 support to reduce downtime in case of any system faults.
