Unrivalled data centre security - unique in the UK

World class security including a BS5979 certified NSI Gold approved police-linked alarm receiving centre.

Protecting your investment in us

Our Manchester facility is protected by an on-site Security and Operations Control Centre (SOC) and police-linked alarm receiving centre (ARC) which is NSI Gold approved and BS5979 certified. This makes us unique in the UK and provides our clients with world class security services.

NSI Gold level approval is a highly respected and trusted hallmark in the security and fire sectors demonstrating technical expertise, robust processes and quality of service.

BS5979 - the highest UK standard

It’s important for our clients to know they’re getting the best possible service. That’s why standards, such as those issued by the British Standards Institute (BSI), exist.

BS5979 is the highest UK standard for alarm receiving centres and gives recommendations for the planning, construction and facilities of manned and unmanned remote security centres, and for the operation of ARCs which receive signals from security systems such as physical intruders, fire, flood and CCTV. Our ARC is manned 24/7 by SIA accredited operatives working to protect your hosted equipment at all times.

Where an incident warrants escalation, alerts can be routed through to police and receive a Level 1 response, bypassing normal 999 procedures.

Our Security and Operations Control Centre also has its own data centre, power and air supplies to cover all eventualities and ensure complete infrastructure independence from any other area of the building or customer data centre.

PASF (Police-Assured Secure Facilities) certified

Our Manchester data centres are PASF (Police-Assured Secure Facilities) certified. This means that our facilities have been physically assessed by the National Policing Information Risk Management Team (NPIRMT) of the UK Home Office and successfully certified to meet PASF security standards.
