New features include disc-style locking, tamper resistance, and carbon-tempered steel cables
Kensington®, the world's #1 seller of laptop locks, today announced a new, innovative line of laptop security locks. Kensington security milestones include inventing the first laptop security cable lock and the industry standard Kensington Security Slot, built into all brand name laptop computers as well as many flat panel monitors, projectors, desktop computers and other devices. The Kensington laptop locks offer the most trusted solutions for people to protect their laptops and the sensitive data on them.
"Laptop security is a growing concern as people depend more and more on their computers," said Roma Majumder, Senior Global Product Manager, Security. "Our new line establishes a new standard for physical laptop locks, furthering our leadership position in laptop security."

Every year, stolen computer hardware costs businesses more than just the replacement value of the equipment. In fact, recent studies have shown that the loss of a single laptop computer can cost a company tens of thousands, even millions of dollars when sensitive customer, competitive, network, and financial information is involved.
