Kensington Keeps Your iPad and iPhones Secure

Kensington Computer Products Group released two security-related solutions for iPads and iPhones this week. Like their useful cable locks for ordinary computers, these are useful for travelers who need to keep close accounting of their devices. The first product, pictured at left, is SecureBack and operates similarly to the older cable locks that can be looped around a more stationary object. While firmly locked, the iPad can still be picked up, moved around, and used for typing and viewing. There are models that include a stand as well, starting at $50.

The second product is for iPhone v4 and combines a proximity sensor called BungeeAir. It bridges a wireless connection between an iPhone and a fob, which is attached to a keychain or placed in your pocket. If an iPhone is left somewhere inadvertently, an alert will sound. BungeeAir has a companion app for your phone that is password-protected and distances can be set to a user’s requirements, making protection easy and personalized. Given that it is both a case and a security device for $100, it seems like a reasonable thing to do.

Both products can be pre-ordered now.
