Gerd Simon has been a recognized trusted advisor, auditor, and strategy and management consultant for digital business models in the international TMT market for 14 years, a data center and Internet veteran. The graduate industrial engineer supports internationally operating investors and companies in their digital infrastructure investments, e.g. for cloud, hosting or data centers, including the DE-CIX worldwide. Managed security is of central importance here. Gerd Simon says, “Smart security based on zero trust will become critical to success in the coming years. The need for pragmatic, manageable, multi-level security systems is growing. The fewer people are active in the data center and the more is automated, the better. The current data center boom in particular will mean that data center operators and their users will have to coordinate their respective security concepts and compliance guidelines even more intensively in order to be able to establish an audit-proof concept. Thought leaders who establish modular, AI-based solutions that can scale highly provide the necessary basis for this. What customers can already generate and analyze from their multi-layered data lake thanks to Kentix is remarkable. The owner-managed, medium-sized company convinces with an all-in-one solution with the best cost-effectiveness and thus offers everything needed for the physical security of business-critical infrastructures. This includes environmental monitoring, access control systems – including the rack level, power monitoring and IP video surveillance, completely remote controllable and thus centrally monitorable via cloud. This is only possible thanks to state-of-the-art, modular software development, which results in a proprietary KentixOS software platform with SmartAPI and web GUI. This can be effortlessly integrated into any ICT infrastructure, thanks to standardized interfaces, and all from a single source – made in Germany, Rhineland-Palatinate – out of Idar-Oberstein,” summarizes Gerd Simon, “There are few companies that take such a future-proof software approach without technology dead ends. I am looking forward to working with an agile team and many innovations for the DC industry.
