3M privacy filters shield sensitive on-screen data from prying eyes

3M Europe : 26 June, 2006  (New Product)
3M today announced its range of laptop and desktop computer privacy filters, which address mounting information security concerns of corporates as more and more employees use company laptops while travelling or in public places. Using 3M privacy filters, PC and laptop users are assured that confidential data on their screen is protected from sidelong glances whether it be from curious colleagues in open plan offices or nosy passengers in neighbouring airplane seats.
3M today announced its range of laptop and desktop computer privacy filters, which address mounting information security concerns of corporates as more and more employees use company laptops while travelling or in public places. Using 3M privacy filters, PC and laptop users are assured that confidential data on their screen is protected from sidelong glances whether it be from curious colleagues in open plan offices or nosy passengers in neighbouring airplane seats.

'Laptop security is a growing concern in confined environments such as airplane cabins, along with airport terminals, trains, buses, wireless coffee shops and hotel lobby areas that are frequented by business travellers,' commented Phil Jones, Market Development Manager, Europe, 3M Computer Filters. 'Users often find it difficult to shield sensitive on-screen information from prying eyes and mere curiosity from passers by can be rather annoying. Our filters present a reliable and convenient solution to this problem, as well as addressing the issue of costs associated with lost time if executives feel unable to work on the move through privacy issues.'

The privacy filters utilise 3M's patented micro-louvre privacy technology which works like tiny vertical blinds to narrow the viewing angle so that only persons directly in front of the monitor are able to see on-screen images and text. Anyone positioned to the side will see a blacked out screen. The filters provide more complete protection with no blurring or image distortion. They also act as a safeguard from scratches, damage and fingerprints to ensure a consistently pleasant user experience.

In addition to privacy protection, some 3M filters also reduce screen glare, block ELF/VLF E-field electromagnetic radiation, and prevent static and dust build-up when properly grounded. They are available in sizes to fit most laptops, including wide screen models, and desktop monitors from 13-inch to 21-inch. The filters can either clip tidily into the bezel or attach to the monitor as framed computer filters. They also stay in position even when laptop is closed.
