    Rack Handle Benefits

    Enhances security

    Prevents door access by tampering with the card access reader head.

    Safeguards equipment

    Safeguards the electrical equipment connected to the circuit by only supplying power following device identification and evaluation.

    Protects the CAT5e/6 cable

    Monitors the energy delivered providing a 47V current limited power source.

    Reduces equipment cost

    Eliminates the requirement for local mains outlet, power supply and battery at every door.

    Reduces installation cost

    Eliminates the local mains wiring, which, in most countries - for legal or insurance reasons - has to be installed by a qualified and/or licensed electrician.

    Reduces energy consumption

    Energy reduction of as much as 80% using intelligent Power over Ethernet (PoE) power management.

    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.

    Regulatory Compliance

    The Rack Handle Solution provides physical security with Audit Trail Reporting as proof of compliance with data security legislation. Below are a sample of regulations which specify the physical security protection requirement of data and equipment:

    Specifies that physical access control is required to ensure that access to information assets is authorised and restricted.

    “…restrict physical access to cardholder data”

    “…physical and technical safeguards to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and security of electronic protected health information.”

    US Federal law that requires the ability to produce audit data on who has access to financial records.

    Requires physical access control to information systems.

    Audit Trail and Reporting

    • Rack Status — front or rear open, or handle unlocked
    • Door Forced alarm
    • Handle Forced alarm
    • Open Unattended — alarm will sound if user leaves the room leaving the rack open
    • Time Open — alarm will sound if rack is left open too long (max 4 hours)
    • Monitoring Rack Temperature — probes monitor and report on rack temperature and provide local and central alarms if rack is too hot (failed air-conditioning, rack fans, etc.)
    • Maintenance Functions — alarm sounders can be muted for rack service and maintenance operations
