Laptop theft has been a problem for a long time. According to TechLok Solutions, 50% of those surveyed admit to leaving their laptops unattended for as long as 5 minutes. This isn’t entirely surprising.

In fact, TechLok states that statistics show that a laptop is lost or stolen every 53 seconds and costs US businesses roughly 6 billion dollars in annual losses. It only makes sense that businesses want to invest in remote office security products.

Sometimes you intend to step away for seconds, but unexpected happenings can turn seconds into minutes. You reluctantly wind up putting your trust in the people around you. Unfortunately, when a laptop is stolen, you can lose anything from its value to your private data and progress on any projects you didn’t save prior to the theft. For businesses, lost property and data mean lost time and productivity as well.

Worse still, lost work computers can result in lost jobs. With so many of us working from home these days, it only makes sense that Paul and Ryan saw a need to address the issue.

So what’s LapLok all about? Paul says, “Modern problems require modern solutions. The four secure walls of the office are gone forever in most businesses. With cyber security and data privacy at an all-time high, we saw a need for our secure solution.”

LapLok keeps your laptop safe when you need to step away. The innovative gadget works by mounting a thin, nonobtrusive arm beneath the laptop. The main device can attach to any surface, like a café table, and the laptop locks in place.

Right away, the sight of it can deter thieves of opportunity. For those bold enough to try their luck, LapLok features a loud alarm, among other security techniques. Best of all, with a lightweight design that weighs less than 1 pound and is about the size of a smartphone, it’s easy to pack up and take with you on the fly.

It’s great to see Paul and Ryan Angott of TechLok Solutions helping battle crime through their upcoming product. Their LapLok security gadget will offer a perfectly effective solution for a common problem most, if not all of us, fear.
