Entatech UK Ltd has secured a distribution agreement with 3M for a range of privacy filters that stop people from viewing what's on someone else's screen.
The privacy filters are for PCs, laptops, tablets and smartphones. They slot onto a screen and provide a clear view when looked at directly, but the screen will be shielded from anyone who tries to catch a glimpse from any side angle.
3M’s range from Entatech currently includes filters for device screen sizes 10-30”, Macs, iPad 1 and 2, Samsung Galaxy tablet and the iPhone 4, 4S and 5.
Studies suggest there is an 80 per cent chance of someone attempting to glance at your laptop, PC or phone – especially when in public situations.
"With more people than ever owning portable devices, it’s never been more important for users to keep their data safe and confidential," read a statement. "[The filters are] important for business and personal users and essential for certain professions within the corporate and medical industries.
"With screens designed for a number of manufacture models and screen sizes, users can be rest assured that their data will remain private and out of sight."
Paul Olliver, System, Solutions & Displays Channel Manager at Entatech, commented: “The addition of 3M’s range of privacy filters is a fantastic accompaniment to our channel. We currently distribute over 3,500 monitors to our resellers on a monthly basis, and 3M’s privacy filters will make for an ideal attachment opportunity – especially for our customers within the corporate and medical industries.
"With government legislation soon coming into place regarding screen privacy within the education sector also, this is the perfect time for Entatech to be bringing 3M on board.”
