All access to the premises is strictly monitored. To prevent any intrusions or hazards, every boundary is secured using barbed-wire fencing. Video surveillance and movement detection systems are also in continuous operation. Activity within the data centers and outside
the buildings is monitored and recorded on secure servers, while the surveillance team are on site 24/7.
In order to control and monitor access to the premises, strict security procedures have been put in place. Every member of staff receives a RFID name badge which is also used to restrict their access. Employee access rights are reassessed regularly, according to their remit.
