Security

Rack level access security is critical for all data centers and server rooms. Increasingly IT managers have recognized this need and upgraded their racks with measures to increase security and increase control of the data center.

Designed for IT Branded Racks

InfraSolution is designed for the global IT branded racks. The handle’s universal mounting cut-out generally allows easy integration with most third-party racks. The 2.8″ touchscreen control panel can be mounted to the perforated door easily. Costly & complicated door customization is not required.

Complex and Uniform Solution

InfraSolution Secure Rack Handles fit to your racks in a consistent manner so your staff can access the rack when needed with ease, and illicit parties will be locked out.

Smart Rack Handles

Two Major Choices

Your first choice is the user interface. The 700 series uses a more direct interface with a combination of a number pad and a smart cart creating a two-factor authentication for rack access control. The 800 series is only a SmartCard interface.

The second choice is deciding between the standalone and networked models. The standalone models are simpler and more affordable. The networked handles allow for more complex security measures such as only allowing individual employees access racks during certain time frames. Remote management is also possible with this option.
