naperlou, I completely agree.  I've seen similar things happen.  With the trend towards co-branding, there's more opportunity for theft or sabotage. 

For some, competition brings out the best in them.  They are driven to achieve more.  For others, it's easier to tear down the competition than to meet it.

naperloul, I'm intrigued by your comment. How did competitors' employees sabotage the equipment? Do you mean that employees of one company snuck into the facility of a competitor and sabotaged their equipment in the dead of night?

A critical need

As more and more data migrates to co-location centers it is important that there be more robust security in these systems.  I have seen situations where competitors employees intentionally sabatoged equipment.   This type of lock should help avoid such problems.
