Data Center Physical Security Market

Data Center Physical Security Market - Physical Security Of Areas Encompassing All
Confidential Information Is Extremely Important
Data centers is a type of physical or virtual infrastructure used by enterprises for housing various
computers, servers, and networking systems along with components for storing and processing high
volumes of data and serving it to clients in a client-to-server architecture. These data centers basically
serve as principal repositories of IT equipment that include servers, networking switches, storage
subsystems, routers, and firewalls. A data center often requires extensive backup power supply systems
or cooling systems along with redundant networking connections for policy-based security systems, in
order to run the core applications of an enterprise. The data center management ensures maintaining of
reliable connections between the data center and companies containing critical information that is
already stored with the center. This also entails efficient placing of application workloads on the
maximum cost-effective resource available. Physical security of areas encompassing all confidential
information is extremely important. This has led to growing relevance of the data center physical
security market all over the world.

There has been great advancement in data storage. Similarly, maintaining a strong physical structure for
the protection of information is gaining significance. This has been a highly important driver for the
market. Special government agencies along with certain sectors such as defense usually spend greatly in
protecting the information provided by these data centers. This further promotes the significance of
physical security. Demand for power and electricity has been surging for the last few years. Companies
in the power sector spend high amounts to protect their premises from outside interference and theft.
This has also been another key driver for the market.
One of the important restraints for the market is hiding the overall appearance of the physical
infrastructure, which may attract some form of sabotage. Maintaining the key security features and
systems including entry and exit controls that has high chances of malfunctioning at any point of time
also acts as another major restraint for the market. On the other hand, the growing importance of data
storage and the advent of ‘big data’ are factors expected to provide ample growth opportunities for the
market in the near future.
Geographically, North America and Europe are major markets for data center physical security. The
rising number of sabotages to hack confidential data and more companies opting for the maintenance of
physical security systems act as drivers for the market in these regions. Asia Pacific is another major
market for data center physical security witnessing rapid growth. Growth of the market in Asia Pacific
can be attributed to technological advancements and growth of services and solutions provided by
different companies, which guarantee the information confidentiality. China, Korea, India, and Japan are
a few major markets for data center physical security in the region.
Some of the key players operating in the global data center physical security market are Honeywell
International Inc. (U.S.), Robert Bosch GmbH (Germany), Safran (France), Tyco International (Ireland),
Schneider Electric (France), Axis Communication (Sweden), Assa Abloy (Canada), Hikvision Digital
