Radar perimeter detection protects sensitive information stored in data centers.
Magos Systems, the leader in advanced radar detection technology, has announced that Telehouse America, a global leader for data centers, international internet exchanges, and managed IT services, has deployed the Artificial Intelligence-enabled ground-based radar solution from Magos to provide perimeter security at the New York Teleport data center, one of its flagship facilities in the United States.
Magos’ radar perimeter detection system essentially creates a virtual fence around the Telehouse data center. This broad coverage enables Telehouse to achieve 360-degree site monitoring regardless of environmental or lighting conditions.
Telehouse, a KDDI company, operates more than 45 data centers globally, with three in the United States, one in Los Angeles, and two in New York. The Staten Island Teleport data center handles sensitive data belonging to Telehouse’s impressive list of clients from fast-growing startup firms to multi-national corporations in the finance, cloud, IT, and consumer sectors.
In recent years, the need for physical security at data centers has grown, and with it, a surge in relevant regulatory requirements and standards. To continue to offer clients leading secure data solutions, these facilities are facing decisions to upgrade to best-in-class layered security systems that leverage the latest, most comprehensive, and innovative technologies.
“Our perimeter security is the crucial first line of defense in our layered security strategy, and the Magos radar solution provides that high level of reliability and accuracy needed,” said Milad Abdelmessih, Vice President at Telehouse America. “Hardening our facilities with intelligent and robust security technology such as that from Magos allows us to maintain high levels of regulatory compliance that is required to protect our customer’s sensitive data and maintain our operational uptime.”
Magos’ Mass + AI solution is used to identify and classify potential threats and has significantly reduced the level of false and nuisance alarms, freeing security operators’ attention to address other priority tasks. Using Magos’ radar perimeter detection system, only the most relevant perimeter alarm information is sent to security staff and other key stakeholders.
“Accuracy and reliability of detection are most crucial at the perimeter when security staff has the most time to react and respond appropriately,” said Yaron Zussman, General Manager, Magos America. “For organizations like Telehouse that depend on minimal operational disruptions, the ability of the Magos radar to accurately detect and analyze potential threats and filter the most important alarms is a crucial aspect to the success of their security operations.”
