TZ Layer 6 Protection

Most data centers control physical access through five security layers starting from the site perimeter, extending from the building entrance, through the lobby, the hallways down to the data center room. Today, there are a growing number of industry and government requirements, regulations and rules that drives physical security to another level of granularity, Layer 6 where it matters most – at the data cabinet level. TZ protection is fast-becoming a recognized standard in Layer 6 protection.


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



An extra level of security that helps to meet 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.

SMArt solutions

for every data center

We put SMA in SMArt

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 expandible asset management capabilities.

Total solution

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

Environmental monitoring

Enables in-cabinet monitoring to track temperature, humidity, liquid detection and door status.

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 web-portal 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.
