Why Kensington for Physical Device Security

To us, security is about more than saving your physical device from theft - it's also about saving data from falling into the wrong hands, which could be far more costly than simply replacing the device. That's why our innovative security solutions are tough, easy to use, and compatible with 99% of laptops, projectors, printers and monitors with security lock slots.

Below is a breakdown of what sets our locks apart from the rest, providing you with the industry-leading solutions you've come to expect from the pioneer in physical device protection.
