Data Center Security and Robots

I ran across a nice article in Data Center Solutions about “Getting physical with data centre security

It is a good summary on the benefits of using a Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) system to provide integrated detection and response capabilities to improve the security of data centers.  It also pointed out one of the limitations of the current approach.  The reliance on layered perimeter security is spot on, but frequently the internal security is less rigorous.  Once a person has been vetted by the perimeter security, they are often allow free access to the interior – after all they have ‘passed’ security.

It is much like the security at most airports, once you are through the security lines, you are free to move about the space.  In an earlier post on “guarding the cloud” I suggested several ways in which the use of autonomous mobile security robots can be used to increase the level of security inside the data center.  After all every bit of information in ‘the cloud’ has to reside on hardware somewhere – and that information needs to be protected.

    Interesting concept.. How this security robot can monitor humans? What kind of security checks it can do on humans?
