Secure data centre for Belgian Bank

ICTroom : 03 September, 2015  (Special Report)
Delen Private Bank in Belgium has chosen ICTroom to supply its secure corporate data centre in Antwerp
Secure data centre for Belgian Bank

ICTroom, experts in the delivery of customised data centre products, has been selected by Delen Private Bank, one of the largest private banks in Belgium, to design and build a new Tier III corporate data centre in Antwerp. This contract comprises the full spectrum of data centre facilities and room infrastructure including power, cooling, security and racks. Part of a large campus renovation project at the bank’s Antwerp headquarters, the data centre building is due for completion by the end of this year and ICTroom’s installations will begin in early 2016.

Delen Private Bank, which has a long and solid reputation as a safe harbour and low risk banker, believes that advanced IT and computer technology are a fundamental basis for its success. The bank chose ICTroom as its data centre partner in line with this ethos, as ICTroom consistently optimises IT performance for customers by creating a data centre infrastructure in which maximum availability and security is guaranteed.

Johan Claes, sales & marketing manager at ICTroom BELUX, said, “We are delighted to be working with Delen Private Bank, who selected our complete data centre portfolio offering for their new corporate data centre, which is in the heart of the city of Antwerp. ICTroom tries to distinguish itself by completely aligning with a client’s underlying business case, providing deep technical expertise and an in-depth knowledge of data centre designs and technical regulations. In addition, we demonstrate a flexible approach to project rollout, coordination and system integration, as well as a thorough understanding of how the data centre will be used now and in the future.”

This contract win is a testimonial to the continuing growth strategy of ICTroom in Belgium and Luxembourg; Delen Private Bank is one of the largest independent private banks in Belgium and part of the Ackermans & van Haaren (AvH) group, a major Belgian investment company listed on the BEL-20 stock exchange and with a turnover of EUR 5.9 billion in 2014.

Focus on security

When asked about the role of security in the new data centre for Delen Private Bank, Johan Claes told us, “Without commenting on the specifics of any particular company, security is nonetheless one of the critical design features of all data centre builds, and a range of options – from both a physical security and cybersecurity perspective – are available to support a variety of differing security concerns.

“We have deployed everything from face recognition systems to key management - not to mention components relating to the physical characteristics of data centres, such as barriers and bulletproof walls. Ultimately, it is critical to ensure that the data centre facility is completely aligned to the business security paradigm, and meets each customer’s specific requirements,” Claes continued.
