- Integrator Providing Access Control, Biometrics and other Advanced Security Systems for Multiple Data Center Sites -
GREAT NECK, N.Y. - Security Management Systems (SMS), a leading integrator of IP-based security solutions, recently completed an advanced data center security system for Oracle data center hosting and consulting services provider Core Services Corporation.
Based in Somerset, New Jersey, Core Services is an Oracle Platinum Partner, providing Oracle-based business operations solutions and information systems, disaster recovery and support to clients worldwide.
SMS was contracted by Core Services to design and build an integrated system at its 15,000 sq. ft. data center and office facility in Union, New Jersey. "This IP-based integrated system enables Core Services to protect its facility, employees and visitors while meeting their SAS 70 compliance requirements," explains SMS Vice President Craig Albrecht.
SMS designed and integrated an end-to-end Cisco solution incorporating Cisco's VSOM and CPAM applications along with biometric readers and visitor management integration. The system also has the ability to import cardholder information directly from Core Services' human resources application eliminating the need for duplicate entry. The Cisco CPAM access control alarm monitoring system manages perimeter access and alarms as well as the core of the data center and access to other sensitive administrative areas. Several dozen Cisco IP cameras monitor both the interior and exterior of the building and are recorded by Cisco's VSOM platform.
Additional sites are in the process of being added to the security system. "We are pleased to be expanding our involvement with Core Services and are expanding their security to Somerset, New Jersey and Baltimore, Maryland by leveraging their network infrastructure along with the network-centric capabilities of Cisco's Access Control and Surveillance System," explains Craig Albrecht.
"Providing maximum security for our clients' data assets is critical, and a competitive differentiator, particularly as we expand to provide additional cloud services," explains Core Services President and CEO Jim Bistis. "SMS clearly has a keen understanding and is able to deliver tightly integrated systems that will protect our people and our customers' data as well as our physical infrastructure."
