Targus brings a new standard in clean to technology with DefenseGuard™ Antimicrobial Protection

Businesses and consumers can stay safer working from anywhere

Following its announcement at CES 2021, Targus, the global computing peripherals and tech accessory brand, announces the availability of its DefenseGuard™ antimicrobial range in the Asia Pacific, reimagining the way we work in a Covid-19 world.

Committed to creating safe and durable protection for tech and its users, the DefenseGuard™ range of accessories with integrated antimicrobial protection, is a continuous cleaning innovation designed to prevent and eliminate growth of bacteria* on product surfaces and touchpoints. Proven to reduce bacteria by more than 99.9%* across bags, cases, keyboard, mice and much more, it won’t wear off or wash off. It is designed for life and is compliant with BPR and EPA industry standards.

The antimicrobial range includes the 2Office Antimicrobial Backpack, with an infused protective finish inside and outside to prevent the growth of microorganisms on the backpack. In addition, Targus has also released tablet cases, mice, and keyboards to ensure that people can keep their working environment as clean as possible, particularly as they travel between home and the office. In this new hybrid working environment, the DefenseGuard™ range makes it more hygienic for people to work, carry, and even share Targus accessories. 

Work safely: 

 *Testing in independent laboratories with JIS Z 2801 and ISO 22196:2011 methods show materials infused with DefenseGuardTM have a 99.9% reduction of Staph Infection and E. Coli bacteria on high-touch products and surfaces.
