The use of tablets is becoming more common place in our everyday lives. Whether it is at home, at work or at the doctor's, tablets seem to be as indispensable as our mobile smart phones. Their versatility and portability make them champions when it comes to use as a tool or for entertainment.
When tablets are used in public spaces however they are exposed to certain kind of dangers, for example theft. Be it in a restaurant or in a retail store. Tablets represent high value items that opportunists are now looking out for.
What can be lost
Apart from their individual costs, tablets can often hold sensitive information about organisations if linked to a network and used as a point of sale. The loss of such information could cause a serious headache if it were to get into the wrong hands. There are electronic measures which can combat this such as; kill switches and remote wiping, although this is not so much a solution but a last resort. A real solution would ensure that the tablet never leaves its intended position undesirably. Therefore a robust tablet enclosure is the answer.
What to expect
Tablet enclosures should be as versatile as the tablet themselves, being able to accommodate the wide range of models, and be stylish and functional in the multitude of settings which it could find itself. A good tablet enclosure ensures the safety of the device, be it from criminals or accidents. It allows organisations and businesses to have confidence that the investment in such technology can and will serve for its entire service life. Once that finishes the tablet enclosure will still be there to safeguard the new generation of tablets. Current safety methods have proven simply inadequate. A wire can be cut in a split second, or even more embarrassingly, pulled and detached from the device.
The more tablets we see employed in public spaces, without adequate protection will mean an easier life for opportunists and criminals.
