Specialized Data Center: Design and Manage Government Data Centers with Security in Mind
Security is a top data center management and optimization challenge for government organizations worldwide. While some government agencies have started transforming their data centers, many still struggle to find the right data center solutions for their security needs.
Specialized data center for government security
Government agencies are not immune to cyber-physical attacks. As government organizations increase their reliance on digital data and increase their use of digital files, they become more exposed to sophisticated security threats.
In 2018 alone, U.S. government agencies reported more than 30,000 cyber incidents. According to Statista, cybercrime caused an average annualized loss of 13.74 million for the U.S. Federal sector. The U.S. government proposed almost 19 billion for the cybersecurity budget for FY 2021 to enable government agencies to optimize their security.
You can help protect your organization from cyberattacks and optimize your data centers’ security by implementing a security-first data center design and management.
You can start by evaluating the security of each data center model, including on-premise, public, private, and specialized data centers. Specialized data centers, for one, are built with security in mind, keeping business-critical and sensitive information physically separate from other data. Specialized data centers are designed to meet high-performance requirements, enabling government agencies to meet security and compliance regulations.
Is a specialized data center the right model for your agency?
The answer is it depends on various factors, such as your agency’s unique data center goals and the benefits that align with your business.
Other data center models can also provide the level of security your agency requires and meet other factors such as CMMC and the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). To avoid costly consequences later on, you should consider the security tradeoffs before deciding what data center model to implement.
