The Man Trap

Vehicle barriers are only one part of the security equation. Shown above is a security element called a "man trap." Here, individuals must pass through two doors to access the data center hallway. The second door only functions if the first door is locked, and entry to the first door is controlled by key cards, guards and other security technologies. Unauthorized users can be locked in the vestibule until law enforcement or security personnel arrive.
