New Twin MicroSaver Makes Securing Two Pieces of Computer Equipment Easy By Adding a Second Patented T-Bar Lock to Industry-Leading Security Cable
Kensington Technology Group, makers of the first laptop security cable lock and developers of the patented Kensington Security Slot built into more than 95 percent of all laptop computers, introduced today the Kensington® Twin MicroSaver® security cable. While the use of laptops in place of desktop computers continues to rise, so has the use of many other peripherals that must be secured simultaneously, including expensive flat panel monitors, printers, projectors, and scanners. With a second patented T-Bar Lock that slides along its cable, the Twin MicroSaver™ security cable provides the industry's most convenient, secure method for locking down two pieces of valuable computer equipment.
The Kensington T-Bar locking mechanism, specifically designed to fit the industry standard Kensington Security Slot (K-Slot), identified by the K&Lock Design®, ensures that the interface between lock and K-Slot is perfect, creating the strongest, most secure connection on the market. A rubber bumper helps protect computers and other equipment from scratches, and because the T-Bar mechanism is designed to fit small, mobile equipment, the lock will not lift computers or peripherals off the desk or block other ports. Also, the Twin MicroSaver security cable's dual T-Bar locks and seven-foot cable provide enough space to accommodate almost any desk and equipment arrangement.
"Since virtually every computer peripheral maker is now adopting our industry standard K-Slot, creating the Twin MicroSaver security cable was an obvious solution," said Tim Tyrell-Smith, Director of Security and Mobility Products at Kensington. "Many studies, not to mention first-hand experience, have shown us the importance of physically securing computers. It only makes sense that we should lock down the equipment sitting right next to our computers, as well."
Twin MicroSaver security cable is available nationwide from computer resellers, at major retailers, and at www.kensington.com. Twin MicroSaver security cable has a suggested retail price of $69.99 and is backed by the Kensington Lifetime Warranty.
A study by the Computer Security Institute released last year found that 57 percent of all corporate network breaches originated from stolen computers and that stolen laptops represented an average financial loss of $89,000 each.
