Now businesses and individuals can select combination or key locks to best fit their needs
Kensington Computer Products Group, the worldwide leader in physical security products for the mobile professional, today introduced the Kensington ClickSafe Combination Laptop Lock, a click-to-lock system that secures a laptop to a physical, immovable object with a combination lock. Mirroring the effortless one-click, simple installation of the Kensington ClickSafe family, Kensington’s new lock provides a combination code instead of a key to secure the device, protecting the valuable data residing on the device.
Kensington has a 20-year heritage pioneering the development of physical security for computers. Kensington’s ClickSafe family provides a simpler, more effective locking experience. Engaged with an almost effortless one-click action, Kensington’s ClickSafe locks are constructed from high carbon steel cables with a corrosion-proof steel lockhead, while maintaining a sleek look and lightweight feel, ideal for the mobilized worker.
With the addition of the new ClickSafe Combination lock to the ClickSafe family, businesses can choose different lock and key configurations that best suit their employees, and can customize access to various devices. For example, the ClickSafe Combination lock might be more convenient for those workers who can’t carry a key, or prefer to have a combination instead of another key on their key ring.
Kensington’s ClickSafe Combination lock is available with master access, allowing administrators to use a tool called the ComboGenie to access all laptop locks when necessary. With the ComboGenie, administrators can unlock laptops if employees forget their combinations or if an executive needs access to a laptop, providing enhanced IT support and greater administrative control.
“As today’s workforce increasingly relies on mobile devices to create and access critical information, preventing laptop theft and the resulting data loss is critical,” says Brian Baltezore, Senior Global Product Manager at Kensington. “The ClickSafe Combination lock provides a new approach to safeguarding corporate information on vulnerable laptops by preventing opportunistic theft with an easy click to lock system.”
The Kensington ClickSafe Combination Locks will be available at Kensington.com and through Kensington channel partners. For additional information on the new and existing line of Kensington products, please visit http://www.kensington.com.
