GPS data provider VeriLocation has increased the security of its tracking services with a move to a new highly secure data centre.
The leading GPS tracking and vehicle telematics company has moved all its data servers to the BlueSquare data centre in Milton Keynes.
It’s the final step in VeriLocation’s recent upgrades to ensure that client data is supplied securely and uninterrupted 24 hours a day.
Managing director Andrew Overton said: "Thousands of clients rely on vital GPS tracking data from VeriLocation 24 hours a day.
"And that means VeriLocation relies on tried and trusted suppliers that operate at the highest level of data security and protection.
"This move to the new highly secure data centre is designed to give clients the most secure and trustable supply of GPS data in the industry."
BlueSquare’s data centres are located within secure compounds with 3-metre fencing and electric entry, including anti-tailgating systems.
Entry to the buildings is via swipe card systems, with 6-layer entry and 24/7 on-site security.
The Milton Keynes building was purpose-built from the ground up as a data centre.
It has two sub stations, and generators with 30 hours of fuel onsite, allowing it to provide an uninterrupted power supply.
In the unlikely event the data centre goes out of operation, there is a mirror site elsewhere in the UK that will step in and take over operations.
VeriLocation also has a number of other security measures in place. These include a secure connection between the internet and mobile phone network and SIM cards with a fixed IP address.
Many of these security measures are more than are strictly required for day-to-day operations.
But they ensure that VeriLocation provides a continuity of service to clients that is among the very best in the industry.
The company is known for personal GPS tracking, as well as fleet tracking and full vehicle telematics.
It now tracks more than 10,000 devices and vehicles around the world.
