With the latest specialty security range from Targus Australia , businesses can minimize or even eliminate laptop theft.

Targus’ premium corporate security solution is the Defcon Serialised Cable Lock which provides the convenience and benefit of a keyless security solution. Available in packs of 25, each lock comes with a serial number and fixed combination, which can be accessed by an IT Manager at any time via the secure, password protected web site.

The Defcon Video Port Combination Lock attaches to most laptops, desktop computers, monitors, or projectors via the VGA port. This keyless lock utilises two attach points with metal screws, making it one of the strongest security devices available on the market. By connecting to the VGA port, it can help secure devices that aren’t equipped with a lock slot.

Defcon Cable Locks are made from 2 metres of cut-resistant, vinyl-coated, galvanised steel cable. To protect your laptop, simply loop the lock around a secure object and attach it to your laptop’s lock slot. The lock also offers an anchor base plate for added security. With a selection of 10,000 possible combinations, you won’t ever need to look for keys or fumble for lost combinations.

For those who prefer a keyed solution, Targus also offers Defcon Key Locks which feature a pass through loop on one end and a lock on the other end. Any attempts to remove the lock will damage the computer, preventing resale and therefore discouraging laptop theft. This 1.8 metre steel cable lock ships with two identical keys.

Made from industrial strength Technora coated cable fibre, the Ultra Max Laptop Cable Lock offers astonishing pull strength of over 1,043 kilograms. At 8mm thick, this ultra strong cable conveniently attaches to any notebook or other hardware equipped with a lock slot. The cable offers up to 10,000 4-digit combinations which can be set or changed at any time.
