Physical Security

Physical Data Centre security measures can include keyed or electronic locks on your Edge and Modular Data Centre enclosure, through to bollards, fencing, simple removal of any signage and other identifiable labels.

Logical Security

Also called Data Security, it can include application and network access restrictions through use of usernames and passwords.

Device Signing

Data Protection measures should include

Data Centre Monitoring

In today’s digital age, cybersecurity stands as a paramount concern for businesses worldwide. Oper8 Global’s Data Centre Monitoring Solutions play a crucial role in this landscape. Our sophisticated Data Centre Monitoring Solutions seamlessly integrates with your cybersecurity strategies, offering real-time monitoring and alerts that keep your data centre’s physical and digital environments secure.

Video Management Systems (CCTV)

Oper8 Global delivers valuable insights from video data by seamlessly integrating your cameras and sensors with our advanced open-platform software and analytics. We prioritize a responsible mindset and a people-first approach in all our solutions.

Data Encryption

Oper8 Global provides encryption solutions for data-at-rest, featuring detailed encryption, tokenisation, and access control based on roles for both structured and unstructured data located in databases, applications, files, and storage systems. By utilising centralised management of encryption keys and establishing a secure root of trust, businesses can safeguard their master keys, ensuring the security of their data.

HSM Solutions

Oper8 Global offers a Hardware Security Module (HSM), a specialised crypto processor tailored for safeguarding the lifecycle of cryptographic keys. This solution serves as a robust trust anchor, securing the cryptographic frameworks of highly security-aware organizations. It ensures the secure management, processing, and storage of cryptographic keys within a device that is both hardened and resistant to tampering.

Key Management

Oper8 Global presents Thales CipherTrust Manager, offering centralised management of key lifecycles and policy control. This solution is available in both virtual and physical appliance formats, compliant with FIPS standards.

Certificate Lifecycle Management

Oper8 Global’s CERT+ automates digital certificate management, ensuring compliance and reducing risks associated with certificate expiration. This efficient and user-friendly tool is vital for maintaining secure digital communications and transactions.

Backup & Archive

Maintaining regular backups and archives of your critical business data delivers a valuable form of data protection, particularly when using Hybrid Storage solutions which include off-site disconnected data replication.

Offsite Data Replication

Replicating and/or backing up data to an off-site, secure and disconnected data repository helps protect against data loss from both physical loss, system failure and cyberattack.

Encryption at Rest

Ensuring your data is encrypted while stored on disk (and tape if used) helps protect against unauthorised physical and logical access. Using transparent data encryption can also limit access to sensitive data by system level administrators.

Asset Management

Servers, data storage and backup devices can all contain sensitive corporate data.

Knowing where each of these devices are physically located, when they were decommissioned, and how data has been removed or destroyed on the device brings Asset Management into the Security Strategy.


Security Platforms

nCipher nShield HSM Solutions

nCipher Security’s nShield Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) are hardened, tamper-resistant devices that protect your company’s most sensitive data. These FIPS 140-2 certified modules perform cryptographic functions such as generating, managing and storing encryption and signing keys, as well as executing sensitive functions within their protected boundaries.

nShield HSMs help you to:
  • Achieve higher levels of data security and trust
  • Meet and exceed important regulatory standards
  • Maintain high service levels and business agility
Which nShield models are available?
  • nShield Connect – network attached appliances
  • nShield Edge – portable USB-based modules
  • nShield Solo – PCIe cards for embedding in appliances or servers
Certification to Industry Standards

The complete list of compliance standards are available from nCipher, while the a partial list of compliance standards include:

FIPS 140-2

Recognized globally, FIPS 140-2 is a U.S. government NIST standard that validates the security robustness of cryptographic modules. All nCipher nShield HSMs are certified to FIPS 140-2 Level 2 and Level 3 and are available for purchase at either level.


Common Criteria and EIDAS Compliance

nShield Solo+ and Connect+ models are certified to Common Criteria (EAL) 4+ and are also recognized as qualified signature creation devices (QSCDs). As QSCDs, nShield HSMs are qualified to serve as the security backbone of European digital signature (eIDAS) and other globally recognized solutions including authentication services, digital signing and time stamping.

nShield as a Service

nShield as a Service is a subscription-based solution for generating, accessing and protecting cryptographic key material, separately from sensitive data, using dedicated FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified nShield Connect HSMs.

The solution delivers the same features and functionality as on-premise HSMs combined with the benefits of a cloud service deployment. This allows customers to fulfill their cloud objectives and leave the maintenance of these appliances to nCipher and its Partners.


nShield Remote Administration

nShield HSMs often run in physically secure, lights-out data centres in locations distant from the people who manage them. These data centres can be Edge, Modular and Colocation facilities.

Many organisations find it impractical to physically access their remote HSMs for routine management tasks.

nShield Remote Administration lets you manage your HSMs—including adding applications, upgrading firmware, checking status, and more—from your office location, whenever you choose. This means less travel to data centres, helping you cut costs and optimise your resources.

Data Management, Backup, & Recovery

Designed to enable fast, secure data storage in remote sites, the Oper8 CloudBox solution can include an on-premise CloudNAS (at the Edge, Office, or colocation site) with automated off-site data replication.

High Level Overview

The CloudNAS can be a phsical or virtual appliance ranging in capacity from 2TB to over 32TB (physical) and over 500TB (virtual). 

The CloudNAS is located on the local network, with a path to Oper8’s own cloud storage platform. Traffic between the CloudNAS and Oper8 cloud storage is encrypted.

The CloudNAS performs in the same manner as a standard NAS with network shares and user permissions limiting data sharing and access.

Both the CloudNAS and Oper8’s Cloud Storage performs real-time data deduplication and features encryption-at-rest.

Backup and replication of the CloudNAS is automatic with flexible scheduling from hours to days.

Could I deploy a CloudNAS in an EDGE Data Centre

Yes, the CloudNAS can deliver secure, large data storage capacity in the Edge facility, with access controls, automated off-site replication to Oper8 Cloud Storage, and real-time logging and operations alerts.

Do I always need a local CloudNAS?

No, Oper8 CloudBox server and workstation clients are available for Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems.

Each backup agent can connect separately to the Oper8 CloudBox portal.

How much Bandwidth is required?

Oper8 has successfully deployed 2TB CloudNAS devices on-premise for clients with limited ADSL bandwidth (only 1Mpbs upstream).

Other solutions have been deployed with 20TB CloudNAS solutions sharing a 15Mbps upstream internet connection.

All CloudNAS editions have bandwidth throttling with either permanent or time of day scheduling.


You get the power and convenience of the cloud without sacrificing security or control.

Making Data Management, Backup, and Recovery Easy.

Our managed local private cloud solution gives you the best of both worlds: the ability to access your data from anywhere, on any device, while keeping your data safe and secure. With CloudBox, you’ll never have to worry about losing important data again.

Networks, VPNs & Secure Connectivity

Maintaining secure networking and connectivity between your Edge, HPC, Modular, IoT and Hybrid Cloud solutions must maintain the highest levels of security without impeding service delivery.
