Let’s dive into what makes the Kensington’s DFS product family so beneficial for users. By the time you’re finished reading, you’ll be ready to take your Surface device to the next level. This article specifically focuses on cases, so your device will be protected when you get there.

Key Partnerships in Computing History

Kensington has been partnering with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to create third-party accessories since computers hit the consumer market. In 1981, our first product was a cooling fan/surge protector developed for Apple’s famed Apple II, the first mass-market home computer. Kensington’s solution extended the computer’s life by cooling the internal components and protecting against electrical surges.

It wouldn’t be the last time we’d innovate in the computer market. Kensington continued forging partnerships with major brands, to add more value to your computing device at home, in the office, or on the go.

The Kensington Security Slot and MicroSaver® cable locks were created in 1991 and quickly became the industry anti-theft standard. Everywhere from retail stores to schools, cafes, governments, and other high-traffic environments benefit from this added layer of protection. Like a bike lock, it’s difficult to remove without causing extensive cosmetic damage to the device and/or creating a scene.

Both agile and adept, Kensington continues keeping up with consumer trends well into the 21st century, pleasing users of laptops, tablets, and more. Now we’re working with Microsoft to create the peak of military-grade protection for the Surface family of products.
