IT teams need to collaborate with their physical security counterparts to choose a solution that complements cyber security while providing scalability and ease-of-use.

For any organisation, providing sound defences against security threats to IT resources requires collaboration between the team responsible for cyber security and the team focused on physical security. If the door to your server room or data centre isn’t physically secure, neither are your IT resources.

It’s certainly a risk that security professionals are attuned to, according to a recent Ponemon Institute study. The study found 42 per cent of security professionals are concerned about their organization’s inability to secure physical spaces containing critical data.
