Access to the data center is controlled and logged. There are several layers of access. Customers’ employees who visit our data center on a regular basis receive a permanent access badge. Each customer assigns one or more employees the ability to authorize access for individuals that may need to enter a CE Colo data center occasionally. When entering data center, each visitor’s identity is verified by CE Colo staff.
The movement of visitors is monitored by security cameras and access control systems (magnetic cards or biometric readers). CCTV monitors are placed at all entrances, doors and open spaces in the data center. Camera recordings are maintained up to 30 days.
An alarm system is activated in the event of a security breach and it is linked to the central control room.
