They really need to be sure of how advanced our technical facilities are."Robin Balen, Gyron's Managing Director says: "In addition to ensuring all the technical aspects of our new centre are first class, we needed to ensure that our security systems are top class as well."An important part of the security offered is the access control system.  Robin says: "Without access control we wouldn't have any customers."Net2 provides the flexibility needed and the audit trail that is essential for Gyron's business. Anyone visiting Gyron has to pass through stringent security. Barriers and rising bollards protect the car park, with the secure data centre guarded by a full height, bullet proof glass ‘man trap'. Users gain access using their token then, once inside, an iris recognition reader checks their credentials and performs an ultrasonic scan to ensure only one person is present, before granting access to the secure area. The iris reader is linked into the Net2 system, giving a full event log of people moving into and out of this area.
