Data Centres

Data Centre (DC) security remains a critical issue for both end-user organisations and managed service providers, ranking alongside availability and resilience of Data Centre based IT services.

Based on the latest research, Data Centre organisations are constantly responding to an ever-changing threat landscape. New controls are being deployed to meet these threats and compliance requirements in the areas of web application security and data security in particular.
