Sunbird Software, the global innovator in second-generation Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software, announced the availability of the Power IQ 8.0 release that further enhances its support for electronic door locks to safeguard data center cabinets and assets from physical threats by enabling central management and reporting in a single pane of glass.
Power IQ now enables local authentication with electronic door locks and rack PDUs which improves the speed of authentication and lock action. Authentication only has to go from the pin pad to the electronic door lock, eliminating the network as potential point of failure and enhancing data center security.
“Data centers are continuously exposed to security threats from both external and internal sources,” said Herman Chan, President, Sunbird Software. “Power IQ 8.0 offers a single, centralized system for transparent data center access management that provides organizations the data they need to mitigate risks and ensure security and compliance.”
Software Platform Refresh
Release 8.0 also includes major infrastructure improvements to remain the most modern DCIM software platform on the market. Technology optimizations such as an operating system upgrade provide enhanced security, require less user maintenance, and support Sunbird’s model of ease of deployment which requires no additional licensing costs for SQL databases or other components.
