Launching soon at Data Centre Expo – at Excel London – 8th – 9th October – is a new biometric locking system to be unveiled by EMKA together with sales partners Data Racks on stand number NN14. The new system addresses concerns that breaches of security at datacentres comprise over 40% of data loss, sabotage and attack. EMKA BioLock provides for the first time finger print technology stored and processed in the handle on the cabinet with an “Indisputable Audit Trail” to protect valuable data. EMKA BioLock is PCI, SOX, SSAE 16 and HIPPA compliant.

Finger print technology on-the-handle enables the individual and/or combination of individuals permitted to access servers via the cabinet to be determined by a distributed security network based at the cabinet with all 10 fingers being recognised and 2 permitted as “duress fingers” which still open the cabinet but set off a remote alarm. There are already 500+ BioLock systems installed at high security locations such as US Airforce, US Army, NORAD, Memorial Medical Centre, Syracuse University, and the US Naval Academy.

The system will be further exhibited at Data Centre World Dublin @ the RDS Centre on 11th – 12th November and at Data Centre World at Excel on 11th – 12th March 2015.
