The Brazilian Intelligence Agency, Abin has just announced that its ‘high security’ data center is now operational in Brasília, in the Federal District, Brazil.

The new data center was contracted to Zeittec – an IT company that specializes in the construction of Data Centers, on a Turnkey basis, and built with CF 120 Safe Room technology, certified by the ABNT 10636 standard to withstand up to two hours of fire.

According to Zeittec, the new data center is initiated because Abin is the body responsible for supplying the Federal Government with strategic information related to the identification of opportunities, threats to the protection of national borders, counterintelligence, terrorism, proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, policies established with other countries, information security and communications and protection of sensitive knowledge produced by public or private entities.

As announced, the new data center is a Tier III concept facility with Tier IV elements, equipped with a DCIM management platform and sensors that produces the possibility of managing operations 24 hours a day, as well as monitoring by cameras and digital access controls to increase the security of the place.

Zeittec is also responsible for preventive maintenance of the data center facility, which the company stated that they have kept a team on standby to respond immediately to any occurrence in the agency’s Data Center.
