How do you secure a large number of tablets for a school or business? The answer is not so simple and institutional security for tablets is still an emerging market (one of the reasons we started this blog). Today, the three leading providers of iPad security carts and trays are Bretford, Ergotron and Datamation Systems.
But how do each of these company’s products hold up head-to-head? Regardless of price, which security product is most secure? YouTube user Prodtest51 equipped himself with a hammer, screwdriver and crowbar and decided to find out. Though we were not able to confirm the accuracy of these videos, the videos do not seem doctored and he seems to be sweating a lot. Here is Prodtest51′s explanation for destroying the three expensive pieces of equipment: ”Prior to recommending iPad security cabinets and carts for a technology roll-out, we tested several to see if they were effective in resisting attack with common tools and at common points of vulnerability.”
Watch these short videos to find out who can be called iPad security cart king.
First test: Ergotron iPad Cart
Second Test: Bretford iPad Sync Tray
Third Test: Datamation Systems iPad Tray (NetSafe) and Cart (NetVault)
Based on these videos, Datamation Systems products are the most secure. Something for your institution to consider.
