Entertech, Digitus Biometrics launch enterprise access control system for data centers

June 24, 2015 - 

In a new partnership, Entertech Systems and Digitus Biometrics have integrated Entertech’s BioConnect identity management platform with the Digitus db Bus and db Cabinet Sentry for server cabinet access control to launch a fully-integrated solution called db BioConnect.

The new biometric access control system lets company data centers, colocation data centers and IT room customers simplify biometric implementation, enrollment and management for access control of perimeter doors, interior rooms, cages and now server racks all integrated into one identity platform.

db BioConnect extends enterprise access security platforms into the data center, making investments in Access Control Management Systems far more economical and effective.

“With Digitus technology integrated to BioConnect, all 15 of our certified access control partners will now be able to offer it to their customers,” said Entertech Systems CEO Rob Douglas. “For the first time, end users will have access to an integrated biometric solution that secures access control from the data centre entrance to the server cabinet instead of having to deal with stand-alone Systems.”

Entertech Systems’ BioConnect is an advanced identity management platform that provides Suprema biometric authentication across many popular access control systems.

The security application helps enterprises implement biometric identity solutions and ultimately reduces costs, overcome complexity and simplifies the authentication process for on-board users.

The platform seamlessly synchronizes data such as new cardholders, changes and deletions, and is customized for enterprises that rely on true identity to secure access to physical facilities and software applications.

Meanwhile, db Bus ServerRack Access Control is designed for data centers that require secure large volumes of server cabinets with only one small component per cabinet.

A single db Bus controller allows the user to secure up to 32 racks with a single 48V power supply and is able to be infinitely scaled.

Designed for data centres with a structured cabling scheme, db Cabinet Sentry is Digitus’ most compact, cost-effective and energy-efficient solution for securing server cabinets.

The unit can be deployed in networked or stand-alone environments, using power over Ethernet (PoE) or an external power supply.

db BioLock is a server cabinet lock that uses biometric identification with prints for up to 10 fingers per user.
