Security, protection standards and Server Fortress
Server Fortress has been tested and approved by LPCB to LPS 1175, security rating 2; certificate number 1465a, Issue 07.
LPCB (Loss Prevention Certification Board) LPS (Loss Prevention Standard) 1175, security rating 2 - Specification for testing and classifying physical protection devices for personal computers and similar equipment - Product suitable for high security storage of servers and other computer equipment.
Server Fortress can help the complete data centre’s infrastructure reach a set level of protection such as IL3 (BIL3). It would form one of the levels of physical protection. Note, other outer layers of portection may also be required. The HMG Security Policy Framework, Version 11.0 – October 2013 issued by The Cabinet Offfice states the following –
‘The “defence in depth‟ or “layered‟ approach to security starts with the protection of the asset itself (e.g. creation, access and storage), then proceeds progressively outwards to include the building, estate and perimeter of the establishment. The type and mix of physical and procedural controls will vary depending on the organisation’s particular circumstances and business requirements, the nature and level of any threats (terrorism, forced break-ins, covert entry, crime etc) and the cost-effectiveness of the controls. The location and layout of each.’
As stated above protection needs to start as close to the asset as possible and then be layered outwards. Server Fortress with its LPS 1175, security level 2, certificate is therefore a great starting point for this layered approach.
