HP Is the First Manufacturer to Integrate the Kensington Nano Security Slot, Featured on the Just-Announced Elite x2
Kensington®, a worldwide leader of desktop computing and mobility solutions for IT, business and home office professionals and The Professionals’ Choice, celebrates 25 years of innovation and leadership in physical security with the introduction of its new NanoSaver™ Keyed Laptop Lock and accompanying Kensington Nano Security Slot™. The new lock and slot were designed for today’s increasingly thin and lightweight devices. Hewlett Packard is the first manufacturer to integrate the Kensington Nano Security Slot into its new Elite x2 – paving the way for next generation security for ultra-thin devices and desktop peripherals.
Kensington invented the first laptop lock in 1992 with the launch of the original MicroSaver® Lock and Kensington Security Slot™, and has since been the standard in physical security. With 20 million locks sold stretching more than 132 million feet – enough to circle around the equator – global brands like Lenovo®, ASUS®, Acer®, and HP® trust Kensington to provide the anti-theft protection users need to secure their devices and the valuable data kept on them.
“The HP Elite x2 was designed to deliver enterprise-class security that is hassle-free and multi-layered to cover every level of security, from data to user identity to the physical device,” said Terrell Aubert, Senior Product Manager, HP Commercial Mobility Accessories at Hewlett-Packard. “With Kensington’s long-standing expertise and number of years in the lock security industry, the Nano Security Slot was the logical choice when determining which slot to integrate with the Elite x2, and we’re pleased to be the first manufacturer to do so.”

“The consequences of a stolen laptop involve not just the expense of replacement, but a possible data breach that exposes private/confidential data, particularly now that office computer theft ranks nearly as high as theft from cars, and exceeds that of airports, hotels and restaurants,” said Rob Humphrey, Director of Global Product Management, Security, Kensington. “The new NanoSaver Keyed Laptop Lock was designed to provide the highest level of physical security for smaller devices, minimizing space, while maintaining strength. We’re very pleased that HP chose the Nano Security Slot for its new Elite x2 and look forward to the slot becoming increasingly available as new devices are released, as well as 25 more years of Kensington innovation and leadership in physical security.”
