BlueLock was ranked 37th in Lead411’s Technology 500 List of 2010 – recognized as one of the fastest growing tech companies in the United States. The amazing growth of the company prompted a real need for a highly compatible data center security solution that could keep pace with continual expansion.
In 2010, BlueLock commissioned the installation of the TZ Centurion infrastructure protection platform in the largest of BlueLock’s SAS-70 Type II data centers – the center of hosting solutions for many of BlueLock’s global clients in the financial services, pharmaceutical, technology and education sectors.
“We looked at several security and micro-protection options available, but none offered the level of cost-effective scalability that the TZ Centurion platform provides. The platform provides the stringent level of security and protection right down to the cabinet level and to the critical IT assets within”. Mike Durham, Director of Quality, BlueLock
In addition to addressing their need for scalability, the TZ Centurion platform also satisfied BlueLock’s requirements for system compatibility. The fact that the TZ Centurion platform is compatible with a cloud environment enabled them to easily integrate the new technology into our data center.
TZ Centurion Server software runs on a Microsoft® platform and provides BlueLock with the capability to plan, monitor and analyze human traffic down to the server level, and at the same time give real time visibility on the environmental conditions and power consumption around their IT assets.
