Manheim, Pennsylvania (Dec. 5, 2016) — IDenticard today announced that its innovative physical data center security solution, Rack Armor™, has received a patent from the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

The patent, effective Oct. 11, 2016, was issued for an “enclosure assembly for securing a door,” a key aspect of the Rack Armor solution. The patent’s number is 9,466,190.

“We are pleased that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has issued the patent for Rack Armor,” said Andre Motta, General Manager of IDenticard Access Control. “Rack Armor is a very unique product and a best-in-class product in its segment.”

The issuance of the patent serves as the culmination of years of research and development by IDenticard, which took Rack Armor from an idea to a blueprint to a tangible solution used by data centers across the globe.

Rack Armor provides maximum control over all aspects of server rack security. Along with the locking enclosure itself, Rack Armor offers alerts when a rack is opened, integration with surveillance video, two-factor authentication and more.

“In recent years, IDenticard has received several innovation awards for multiple products,” said Motta. “Rack Armor is definitely one of the most advanced products in the access control market, and we’re glad to see it recognized with a patent.”
