Implications - When it comes to security, companies are providing proper defense in addition to a good offense. Aside from the handheld tasers and anti-rape devices, products need to extend the idea of proper protection in case these gadgets fail. Discrete defense units are a great way for businesses to offer additional protection for consumers who don't have the advantage on the offensive.
