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 pleased to be recognized by Gartner and attendees as having the best presentation that clearly demonstrated the creativity and usability of our products," said Tom Russo, Vice President, Sales & Marketing for Kensington.

The RetailVision Event is the premier global event for the retail channel, bringing vendors together with Top 100 level retailers, e-tailers and direct marketers across North America, Latin America and Europe.

"The Best of RetailVision awards are significant because they are voted on by these consumer channel decision makers, and recognize vendors demonstrating both innovation and leadership in the retail marketplace," said Pete Prentice, Senior Global Director for RetailVision.
