Secure Data Centers That Leave Nothing to Chance

We maintain the highest level of physical security with CoreSite-employed security officers who are on-site 24/7/365. These officers are trained in best-in-class processes and procedures and cutting-edge technology, all of which establishes a platform that enables our customers to meet their information security objectives. We test our security systems and protocols regularly to ensure exceptional response rates, and each year we participate in compliance validation programs such as ISO 27001, SOC 1 Type 2, SOC 2 Type 2, HIPAA and PCI DSS in order to firmly represent our commitment to – and maintenance of – secure, reliable data center facilities.

A Dedicated Approach to Security

While most data centers outsource their security personnel, CoreSite directly employs experienced security officers at our facilities, adding a layer of accountability to the protection of your mission-critical business applications. Security personnel receive rigorous annual training and are required to pass certification. CoreSite security officers are on-site around the clock, every day of the year to protect your organization’s IT infrastructure.

Data Center Physical Security and Technology

In addition to our security personnel, CoreSite data centers are protected by a gamut of technological security measures.

IP-DVR Cameras and Perimeter Fencing

CoreSite facilities are secured by 8’ perimeter fencing as well as 360 degree view IP-DVR cameras.

Biometric Scanners & Card Readers

Most main entrances and many locations throughout our data centers require the use of a personalized security badge and biometric scanner.

Mantrap Entries

Most facilities employ mantrap or double mantrap entries in order to strictly maintain the flow of people through the entry points at our data centers.

Locking Cages and Cabinets

At minimum, cages and cabinets are key locked and monitored by video.  Customers also can opt to add card readers and biometric scanners to their deployment.

"CoreSite makes it easy for us to provide a safe, secure, reliable experience for our customers. We’re able to present our extensive roster of customers and prospects with direct access to all the services and applications they want in a single location."
