Kensington Technology Group, a leading maker of accessories that enhance the lifestyle of the Digitally Active™ consumer, announced today that its has expanded its security product offering with the immediate availability of the Kensington® Personal Firewall for Notebooks. Kensington Personal Firewall is a true plug-and-play firewall solution, providing the security that mobile professionals need when working outside their office environments in unprotected Wi-Fi zones. Personal Firewall does not interact with a laptop user's corporate firewall so anyone can utilize the security features when they are outside of a corporate network.
"We are all exposed to a variety of attacks as soon as we go online. Whether you are looking to buy tickets, access your bank account, researching health topics - all that you do when you are on the Internet can be easily tracked," said Roma Majunder, Security Product Manager for Kensington. "The Kensington Personal Firewall is an excellent alternative to complicated security software installations that need to be updated on a regular basis or they expire."
The Kensington Personal Firewall resides on a convenient and easy to use USB key. When the USB key is plugged in, the firewall is activated. When the USB key is removed the firewall is deactivated. This is a unique solution especially for corporate users who are not allowed to upload firewall software on their corporate machines. The Kensington Personal Firewall will not impact any existing corporate firewall.
Key Benefits of the Kensington Personal Firewall:
- Protects system against malicious attacks
