BIOMETRIC LOCKING SYSTEM FOR SERVER RACKS

Launched this week at Data Centre Expo at Excel London was a new biometric locking system to be unveiled by EMKA together with sales partners Data Racks.

The new system addresses concerns that breaches of security at datacentres comprise over 40% of data loss, sabotage and attack. EMKA BioLock provides for the first time unique finger print technology stored and processed in the handle on the cabinet with an Indisputable Audit Trail to protect valuable data. The product is PCI, SOX, SSAE 16 and HIPPA compliant.

Finger print technology on-the-handle enables the individual and/or combination of individuals permitted to access servers via the cabinet to be determined by a distributed security network based at the cabinet with all 10 fingers being recognised and two permitted as 'duress fingers', which still open the cabinet but set off a remote alarm.

There are already 500+ BioLock systems installed at high security locations such as US Airforce, US Army, NORAD, Memorial Medical Centre, Syracuse University, and the US Naval Academy.
