Superior security for your racks
When your infrastructure is stored in our data centres, it's protected by advanced physical security systems and protocols.
These include a multi-layered access system with individual authentication using combined biometric fingerprint technology and ID access cards (IDACs), an extensive CCTV network and 24/7 onsite security staff.
Identification Access Cards (IDACs)
Our Identification Access Cards (IDACs) combine photo and biometric template technology to ensure that only authorised individuals can gain access to our data centres.
IDACs give authorised customer representatives freedom to enjoy 24/7 facility access, and are programmed to restrict access to specific data halls, cages and individual NEXTDC-provided racks as required – with a full audit trail recorded. Each individual that requires 24/7 access to the data centre needs their own IDAC, which incurs a small monthly fee (NEXTDC waives the fee for your first two).
A ‘biometric template’ is what is stored on our IDAC cards. 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.
Benefits of the IDAC
- 24/7 access to your racks at any of our data centres
- prevents sharing and cloning
- individual access permissions can be controlled by your company administrator in our ONEDC® data centre management portal
- access logging and audit trail
