Security of every IT service starts at the basics with the infrastructure. Most of the Polish businesses still have their own server rooms, although not many can afford quality data processing experts specialist companies can.
According to “IT Focus” research, as many as 31% respondents point to recurring failures at their current server rooms as the reason for relocating IT infrastructure. Colocation of resources in a professional data center not only excludes the risk of failure due to inappropriate environment, but also the risk of unauthorised access to data, or losing data because of the lack of 24/7 monitoring.
