Laptops are designed to be light and easy to transport and carry, and for this reason they are easy targets for thieves. The thing is, it is not just the loss of the hardware that can be an expensive lesson, but often the information stored on the laptop can be the most damaging thing to go missing. Confidential files, documents that haven’t been backed up (let’s face it – we don’t back up every day unless it is automatically done by a network in the office) and often, personal documents or image files that cannot be replaced go missing when a laptop is stolen.
We have the ideal solution – laptop locks! We stock a wide range of Kensington locks that can prevent your laptop from becoming easy pickings for thieves, even when you are on the move. It is vital to put some security measure in place to ensure the safety of your laptop and the information stored on it, and our laptop locks provide all the security and safety you need.
The Kensington laptop lock links to a security slot that is usually found on the side or the back of most modern laptops. This little port is where the lock and cable are anchored to the laptop. The cable is threaded through the port and attached to a solid or heavy object such as a desk, wall, or even a laptop bag. The lock can typically be opened with a key or a combination lock in order to release the laptop from the cable when you need to take it away. This little slot can also be found on many other electronic products, such as game consoles, LCD projectors, and monitors.
While no lock is perfectly secure, it certainly proves invaluable against opportunistic theft. With enough time and the right tools, it is possible to cut through the cable, but it certainly won’t be a moment’s work, as these are designed to be particularly durable and hard to cut through. However, a lot of laptop thefts are purely opportunistic, and the sight of a laptop lock anchoring the item to a heavy object is enough to deter those opportunistic thieves.
