The next generation of

data center protection

TZ Layer 6 Protection

Critical business assets demand multi-layered security – and the latest security protocols require the latest cybersecurity working alongside the latest in physical security technology. For data center operators and organizations that process and store data, the term Layer 6 describes the physical security at the infrastructure cabinet level – protection where it matters most.

TZ protection is becoming the recognized standard in Layer 6 protection. Our patented TZ SMArtLock technology delivers the most advanced rack-level security management solution available, relevant to today’s security expectations.


Minimize Risk. Maximize Protection.


Meeting the needs for business continuity and regulatory compliance requires a proactive approach. Just controlling physical access to your building is simply not enough.

Industry compliance


Layer 6 physical security helps to meet the ever increasing national and sector regulations and compliance mandates.

Real-Time Monitoring


Remote visibility enabling a new level of insight and control from anywhere in the world.



Peace of mind knowing that risk is managed proactively – protecting the asset and not just the space.

Two trends are driving the need to rethink data center protection:
the growth of cloud computing services and the evolution of the internet
of things. These trends present both business opportunities and threats.

Advanced solutions

for every data center

TZ next generation security

Unlike conventional electronic locks, all TZ SMArt locking devices use advanced Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) materials as actuators and embedded sensors to optimize operation. This technology offers a number of strong advantages including allowing for rich data collection and diagnostic abilities.

Complete versatility

The only cabinet locking solution available today that can be retrofitted to the majority of data center cabinet types or cages and integrated in a range of available building access control systems.

Greater scalability

Enables multi-cabinet locking through one control hub that uses only one rack unit of space to optimize cabinet real estate – readily extendible and expandable asset management capabilities.

Total solution

Enhanced enterprise software modules expand functionality to detailed analysis, granular reporting and asset configuration

Mobile app

Mobile app and APIs provide for flexible authentication and control of access to racks.

Electronic locking

The world’s truly intelligent locking device — extending the level of protection right down to the cabinet and asset level where it matters.

Elimination of physical keys

Electronic locking — means maximum security but without the keys and key management issues.

Remote visibility

Real time remote monitoring and reporting of events in geographically dispersed locations from one centralized command.

Real-time auditing

Tracks and reports activities and events in real-time, for real-time business intelligence via a modern, fast web browser interface and dashboard.

No magentic emission

Revolutionary smart devices with smart materials actuation eliminating any risk of magnetic field emissions.

Lower Investment

Built on standard structured cabling, implementation can be up to three times more cost effective than alternatives.
