NEXTDC has installed Gunnebo HiSec security booth entries at 4 of its Australian data centres, delivering access control for data protection and customer security.

NEXTDC required a high security solution incorporating a sophisticated reader to enable automated verification and entry for employees and visitors, while maintaining high levels of safety and defence against breaches of security. The solution also needed to be energy efficient.

NEXTDC installed a total of 13 HiSec security booths at the 4 locations in Brisbane, Perth and Sydney. HiSec is a motorised high security booth in an elegant, transparent design offering single person detection, anti-hostage threshold, bullet resistant safety glass and high accuracy verification available via an inbuilt reader.

NEXTDC opted for a dual verification system with biometric and scanned verification on the outside of the door. The HiSec solution features 2 sets of doors, where the second only opens once the first door closes and verifies that a single person is inside the security booth inner chamber at a time.

NEXTDC is a leading independent data centre operator. Its partner ecosystem comprises Australia’s largest specialised ICT community of more than 640 clouds, networks and IT service providers. With a focus on sustainability and renewable energy, NEXTDC delivers solutions that champion the best energy efficiency ratings in the country, as well as NABERS 5-star certification.
