Cisco Helping to Secure Colorado Springs Data Center; Travis Taylor Comments

cisco_GovConWireCisco Systems Inc. has signed a deal with a Colorado Springs data center to secure the facility’s services intended to help customers address threats to equipment and sensitive information.

Cisco has implemented its physical access manager to boost Data102’s physical security at its data center in Colorado Springs, Colo., Data102 said Saturday.

“All of our physical security measures are monitored around the clock by our experienced staff which guarantees a strong line of defense against even the most dangerous intruders,” said Travis Taylor, director of business development at Data102.

The access manager expands the datacenter’s operation from logging visitors’ access information and video to monitoring entry into every area of the facility.

Cisco will also overhaul the office space and conference rooms to allow only employees with a badge to access the datacenter.
