Addressing cyber security concerns of data centre remote monitoring platforms

18 July 2016

Digital remote monitoring services provide real-time monitoring and data analytics for data centre physical infrastructure systems.

However, with the cost of cyber security crime projected to quadruple over the next few years reaching $2 trillion by 2019, there is concern these systems could be a successful avenue of attack for cyber criminals.

In this paper, Schneider Electrics' Torben Karup Nielsen and Patrick Donovan describe key security aspects of developing and operating digital, cloud-based remote monitoring platforms that keep data private and infrastructure systems secure from attackers.
