Explanation:
We at the U:S: Marshal Service call it the "guard shack" but it is called a security control point or security check point. Either way you are going to get stopped and checked if you do not belong there, and we carry guns.

Hope this helps.

Security Gate


Explanation:
This appears to be in a less formal context than a military one. The security gate, for me, implies a small shelter for the guard and not just a gate. It would be typical in a lot of private/company carparks in the UK. Though I note that it may mean just the gate itself in US English...
