Keep Your Data Private, Anywhere: Prevent unauthorised viewing with privacy screen filters from Kensington

The Vulnerability Nobody’s Talking About: People looking over your shoulder, friend or foe?...

Employees now have the equipment and the flexibility to work anytime, anywhere. Unfortunately, the more agile a workforce is, the more vulnerable it is to visual hacking, especially in public. A hacker only needs to see a screenshot/email displaying sensitive information to glean valuable and potentially damaging information.

Most incidents of this nature result from a lack of screen protection. A visual hacking experiment by thePonemon institute, 2016 revealed over 90% of visual hacking attempts are successful.

Using Prism-technology to permit direct-visibilty for the device user only, Kensington Privacy screen filters support GDPR compliance and ensure that any sensitive information being viewed by an employee remains strictly confidential.
