The Kensington Laptop Locking Station offers superior laptop security combined with an exceptionally easy to use design. Ideal for business users, the product will also serve IT managers working to improve security compliance across an entire department or company.
The Kensington Laptop Locking Station is built with an all-steel backbone that resists cutting, drilling or prying. Users simply place their laptop on the base of the unit and close the side arm, with no key or cable required. To unlock, insert a key to release the laptop. The optional Tether Kit offers additional flexibility to users who do not want to permamently attach the laptop locking station to a desktop surface. Locking a laptop has never been this easy.
A recent 2009 TNS national survey commissioned by Kensington shows workplace demand for improvements in laptop security practices. Kensington’s new Laptop Locking Station elegantly fulfills that need. According to the survey, 49% of respondents’ leave their laptops unsecured when they are away from their desks. Another 21% surveyed said that when they are away from their desks, they hide their laptop in a drawer. And when asked to select the place they are most worried about having their laptops stolen, 17% of the respondents indicated the office.
“Kensington customers have told us they need the highest physical safeguards possible for laptops while still having easy access to their hardware, and we listened,” said Rob Humphrey, Director, Security Products Global Business at Kensington. “The Laptop Locking Station will finally give IT managers the ability to drive security compliance in the workplace by leveraging an efficient method to protect their investments. This is a product that is as easy to use as it gets, and provides a highly secure environment for your company laptops, deterring theft and guarding valuable data.”
