Data Centre Security
Comprehensive solutions and virtualisation benefits
Data Centres have become repositories of an organisation’s most sensitive and critical information. It is no surprise therefore that they have also become a prime target for highly motivated cyber criminals. Protecting and ensuring the integrity and availability of this information is crucial to any business.
With the increase in financially motivated attacks against Data Centres, businesses must deploy security measures to protect sensitive information while ensuring its availability to the organisation and meeting the demands of regulation and corporate compliance.

Addressing all elements of Data centre security, our experts can help build solutions providing high performance, load balancing firewalls, integrated intrusion prevention, IPSec and SSL VPN for encrypted communications and data transfers. Anti DDos solutions that can protect large enterprises and service provider environments from massive DDoS attacks while Web Application protection solutions provide defence against application layer attacks.
Benefits of core security service virtualisation
The virtualisation of core security services such as firewall gateways, switches and routers on a single piece of hardware offers the same benefits as server virtualisation in the Data Centre and can often be substantial. This cost reduction through optimising resource usage can be seen in lower investment in hardware, maintenance, and upgrade costs. It also delivers reduces the costs to extend Data Centre capacity, improves energy conservation and lowers IT administrative overheads.
Additionally it’s significantly faster and easier to provision a new virtual security gateway with full firewall, VPN, and intrusion prevention capabilities than it is to deploy a new piece of security hardware. This agility and speed of provisioning Data Center security aligns with server virtualisation in providing better support for new business initiatives.
