1. What is data center security?
Data center security refers to the solutions including virtual technologies and physical practices used to protect a data center from external attacks and threats. As these data centers hold sensitive information, like intellectual property and customer data, it is important to secure data centers digitally and physically against cyberattacks and other vulnerabilities with resilient data center solutions. Any business that relies on a data center for partial or full operations needs to have data center security systems to protect the information from theft, loss, and malicious manipulation.
2. Why is data center security important?
As a data center hosts applications, information, and services that businesses use every day, it is vital for businesses to ensure that they are using appropriate and comprehensive data center security solutions, including data center cybersecurity and network security. However, if data centers lack effective data center security solutions, it can result in data breaches and theft of sensitive company information or customer information, leading to heavy losses.
The pace of technological advancements depicts that security threats will continue to evolve rapidly. Therefore, there is a need for data center security solutions at the infrastructure layer with visual data center technologies. The security-integrated software deals with security threats and enables a fine-grained security approach with great agility.
