Power surge protectors and UPS

Type: physical threat prevention security

Power surge protectors and UPS units are crucial in protecting critical computer equipment from electrical surges or cuts in the power supply. Surge protectors stop too much power, also known as an energy spike, from entering electrical devices and thereby avoid the risk of damage to equipment via electrical surges. Energy spikes can be the result of sudden changes in electrical current, power supply failures, lightning strikes, electrical equipment malfunction or other electrical anomalies.

UPS (Uninterruptable Power Supplies) keep a supply of power to electrical equipment in the event of a power cut; this is long enough for devices to save data and shutdown properly thereby reducing the risk of data loss and damage. Protecting against electrical problems is a basic necessity that is all too easy to overlook, without electric protection disaster can occur at anytime.
