When your infrastructure is secured in our data centres, it's protected by advanced physical security systems and protocols, monitored and secured 24x7.
These include a multi-layered access system with individual authentication using combined bio-metric fingerprint technology, tamper proof ID access cards (IDACs) that cannot be cloned, an extensive CCTV network and 24x7 onsite security staff.
Identification Access Cards (IDACs)
Our Identification Access Cards (IDACs) combine photo and bio-metric template technology to ensure that only authorised individuals can gain access to our data centres.
IDAC's give authorised personnel freedom to enjoy 24/7 facility access, and are pre-programmed to restrict access to specific data halls, or down to finite detail such as specific rack pods and rack bays. All access is monitored electronically and time and date stamped with a full audit trail, available to be viewed and reported on-demand in ONEDC®. Personnel granted access to the data centre, that require 24x7 access are required to have their own IDAC, which incurs a small monthly fee (NEXTDC waives the fee for your first two).
A ‘bio-metric template’ is your fingerprint, which is stored on your IDAC. This template is a digital reference of distinct fingerprint characteristics as determined by the bio-enrolment process. The template is stored only on the card itself and not in our security system, with the card and fingerprint unable to be tampered with ensuring complete security at all times
Additional IDAC benefits include:
- Access permissions can be controlled by your company administrator in ONEDC® from individual users, to work groups
- Digital access tracking providing a full audit trail
- IDAC’s can be ordered and decommissioned as you require for authorised personnel directly from ONEDC®.
