Entertech releases white paper on deployment of biometric hardware for access control at London data center
Entertech Systems has released a new white paper discussing the deployment of Suprema biometric hardware for access control at City Lifeline, a data center in central London.
Entertech is the official operating partner of biometrics firm Suprema Inc. in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland and Puerto Rico.
City Lifeline is a secure provider of shared data center space with over 28,000 square feet and capacity for over 600 racks. The data center operates to tier 3 standards of resilience and reliability and has 24 carriers providing data communications to the customers colocated with them. The company needed to ensure they could give their clients insights into the access of each area of the facility and provide enhanced levels of physical and data security.
“As part of our ISO27001 certification, we are required to operate to very high levels of security in our data centre,” said Ian Tait, technical manager of City Lifeline.
City Lifeline chose a combination of Suprema BioEntry Plus and BioLite Net devices. These devices have indoor and outdoor certification as well as multi-factor authentication capabilities (fingerprint, card and PIN) which made it easier to address all the access control desires of particular personnel — clients, visitors and staff (both permanent and contracted).
“The Entertech solution with Suprema readers has given City Lifeline the ability to demonstrate security and assurance to both their current and potential clients,” says Rob Douglas, Founder and CEO of Entertech. “Our goal is also always to provide the professional consulting services and technical support that will make the difference for any company’s decision to go biometric, and we were able to do that with City Lifeline.”
