Extends the ClickSafe® Family of Security Products to Protect the iPad® In Public Environments
Kensington Computer Products Group, a worldwide computing accessories provider for the mobile professional, today introduced a new line of ClickSafe® enabled security cases for the iPad 2. The new SecureBack™ Case uses Kensington’s smart. safe. simple.™ ClickSafe® technology to secure the iPad and prevent device and data theft.
The loss or theft of an iPad can result in severe consequences for users who rely on them—from lost productivity to replacement costs. The most serious compromise is the loss of sensitive personal and business data residing on iPad devices. Gartner projects that 80% of businesses will support a workforce using tablets by 2013 and Kensington’s smart. safe. simple.™ approach to iPad 2 security ensures a smart first line of defense for tablet users wherever they go.
Kensington’s family of SecureBack cases features a unique three-piece design with a patent- pending rail system that quickly and easily secures the iPad to prevent theft. The case includes the world-class ClickSafe Security Anchor that enables iPad users to easily lock their tablet, in just one click. Designed to complement the iPad in every way, SecureBack preserves the tablet’s celebrated, slim form factor. SecureBack offers full access to the iPad 2’s ports, speaker, and cameras. The integrated security bar on each case can tilt the iPad for an ideal on-screen typing angle.
Kensington has introduced two versions of the SecureBack case. The first features one-click security in a sleek form factor ideal for handheld use. A second case adds a 2-way extendable stand with 20-degree typing angle and 60-degree landscape viewing angle. Both versions are available bundled with a ClickSafe lock and cable.
“We are excited to offer our customers the superior protection, ease and simplicity of our ClickSafe security system for a tablet computer,” said Brian Baltezore, Senior Global Product Manager at Kensington. “Tablet users need security that will complement, not hinder, their use of the iPad. SecureBack is a design that truly pays respect to the tablet’s style and functionality, so that when an iPad user inevitably does have to walk away from their device, they can do so with confidence.”
