Server Room Security requires an integrated access control and monitoring system. Borer's Server Rack Security Solution works alongside the FUSION software access control system.

In the high priority server room security data centre environment where most digital routers are heavily fortified with firewalls and other security, most data protection is based on the company assets being protected against malicious physical attack from intruders.

Borer's Rack Handle Access Control solution is capable of protecting an unlimited number of racks/cabinets. It also has the ability to integrate ONVIF compliant CCTV systems in order to bring up live and recorded camera feeds to monitor access within a data centre environment. Alongside a floor plan GUI, operators are able to view a graphical representation of their site showing door, lock and rack status, and alert to any issues.
The live FUSION central software status offers the ability to view up-to-date events and shows who is accessing the racks and for how long, and presents live alarm monitoring.

Multi-user Client Access allows authorised personnel to interrogate the system from any workstation on your network, reducing operating costs by monitoring all server room security sites from a single security office. Operators are able to apply specific access groups to individuals and even specify a time window if required.

The server rack lock handle readers work with MIFARE® Classic, MIFARE Plus® and MIFARE® DESFire® cards, depending on the application and security level required.
