Security & Compliance
Mitigate Threats During Operation
Our data center is staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year - after all, your data never sleeps, so neither do we.
CCTV & Physical Security
All exterior doors are locked and all entrances are monitored by interior and exterior CCTV with motion activated recordings. Additionally, the City of South Bend police headquarters is less than one-mile away from the data center, benefitting from frequent patrols.
Building Management System
We use Honeywell’s Tridium Building Automation System to plan and conduct maintenance on our multi-million dollar data center. With our maintenance protocols, we can ensure the ideal level of maintenance and rapidly respond to an emergency.
Customer Access Procedure
We maintain a pre-approved list of client personal that can access the data center. All visitors are required to show a valid government issued photo ID to confirm their identity. Authorized clients are then issued a Data Realty visitor badge for access to the data suite.
We are in compliance with PCI DSS (2.0) for physical security and infrastructure availability. We successfully completed the Service Organization Control SOC-2 Type I and Type II. And we maintain appropriate compliance with HIPAA and HITECH standards.
Our customer "cyber suite" consists of opaque walls and doors constructed with Polycarbonate. To ensure secure separation, each custom space includes key locked doors on the ends of the cabinet footprint.
Mitigate Threats in Design
Low Disaster Threat
The threat of natural and unnatural disasters are mitigated in South Bend, historically a low-risk area for natural threats such as tornados and earthquakes. Our Northern Indiana data center is centrally located and immune to typical coastal threats such as hurricanes.
Engineered to Withstand Disasters
Designed by the leading architecture firm, ESD, our data center features cutting edge engineering applications to withstand disasters.
Constructed by the nationally acclaimed firm, Turner Construction, materials and techniques were used to guarantee the security of the data living within the data center, which has 1-foot concrete wall surrounding the data suite which can withstand a direct hit from an EF4 category tornado.
Raised Flooring System
With the foundation and substructure strong enough to withstand an earthquake, flexibility had to be found elsewhere. Our fully modular and self supporting raised Bergvik Iso Flooring system allows the flexibility to change the “pitch” distance between set rack line-ups without rebuilding the substructure. This allows clients to build-out in increments as their square footage needs increase.
