Press release: Centro datacentre facility earns UK Police flagship ‘Secured by Design’ certification

Gyron, a leading provider of specialist datacentre services, has been awarded the prestigious UK Police flagship ‘Secured by Design‘ certification for its state of the art Centro datacentre facility which opened in June 2009.

Ben Miller, Operations Director at Gyron states:

Our customers trust us with their most sensitive and mission critical computer systems and data. Our Centro datacentre facility in Hemel Hempstead was designed with industry-leading physical security in mind from the start, with iris scanners, 3m security fences, blast proofed windows, computer controlled motion detection, and much more, to ensure that this trust is well earned. We entered in to detailed discussions with the Police prior to any fit out work commencing at the facility, and we’re now gratified that following an extensive post-completion audit by the Hertfordshire Constabulary they have certified our compliance with the prerequisites for this award.
