If you've ever been to a casino, you know the dealers don't keep all the winnings with them on the game room floor. Instead, casinos safeguard the money in a special room or vault that can only be accessed by select individuals. Why do they do this? Because it's not only gamblers who may be tempted to steal some of the cash, but casino employees themselves.
Now, I know what you're thinking – what does a casino have to do with your business? Well if you have important digital data stored on your servers, the answer is: a lot. While it's important and obvious why you should protect your office building – if you don't also have security measures installed to protect your server cabinets, you could be putting your business at risk.
The majority of physical security breaches are the result of workers who gain unrestricted access to server cabinets, which is why you installing biometric security devices on your server cabinets is the best way to make sure that only the employees you trust the most get access.
