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.

Unauthorized users can be locked in the vestibule until law enforcement or security personnel arrive.

The "man trap" security mechanism is interesting... seems a bit like something from a movie.
