Kensington, the company that invented the Kensington Slot that has long become synonymous with cabled security for laptops, has just announced its new family of SecureBack Security Cases for the iPad 2. Designed to secure Apple's 2nd-generation tablet in public places, the Kensington SecureBack Security Case features a unique three-piece design with a patent-pending rail system that snaps into place to quickly and easily protect the iPad against theft.
According to Kensington, the SecureBack Case was designed as a first line of defense for an iPad-toting workforce, with a unique design that preserves its slim form factor. Moreover, the case provides full access to the iPad 2's ports, speaker, and cameras.
There are two main models of the SecureBack Security Case:
Kensington SecureBack Security Case (with ClickSafe Lock)
The Kensington SecureBack Security Case features a one-click security packaged in a sleek form factor suitable for handheld use. An adjustable slider bar allows quick access to the ClickSafe Security Anchor for easy security. This model is "ClickSafe ready" and can be purchased with or without the ClickSafe Lock.
The Kensington SecureBack Security Case with 2-way Stand (& ClickSafe Lock)
Similar to the SecureBack Security Case, the Kensington SecureBack Security Case with 2-way Stand incorporates an additional 2-way extendable stand with the flexibility for either landscape or portrait mode. This model is "ClickSafe ready" and can be purchased with or without the ClickSafe Lock.
The ClickSafe Lock is another Kensington invention that allows the lock to be clipped into place without any cumbersome aligning or twisting common to the original Kensington Slot design.
Brian Baltezore, Senior Global Product Manager at Kensington observed in a statement: "Tablet users need security that will complement, not hinder, their use of the iPad. SecureBack is a design that truly pays respect to the tablet's style and functionality, so that when an iPad user inevitably does have to walk away from their device, they can do so with confidence."
The Kensington SecureBack Security Case line of products is currently available for pre-order direct from Kensington.com and major retailers.
