My personal preference is for a rigorously tested two stage security regime implemented both between the perimeter fence and facility, and between different data halls. However, security is ultimately only as good as the personnel and operational procedures in place.

As data can now be spread across a greater number of locations, issues such as sharing of data centre space through collocation options and secure access to fibre networks are becoming as important as site security itself.

With the advent of increasingly varied multi-platform access routes in to your networks, how you succeed in safeguarding your data, how you manage risk strategically, and the decisions you make on implementing those solutions, will continue to be an issue that keeps IT executives awake at night.
