3 Big data security analytics techniques

Product Round-up Rubber skins and plastic hard cases may not provide your iPad with the all-encompasing protection of a folio or slipcase, but they'll certainly take the knocks - and bring some colour and individuality to your tablet.

Belkin Grip Vue Case

Belkin's skin sits somewhere between the hard clip-on-the-back cases and the floppy ones. Like the latter, it wraps around the tablet's sides and onto the front, but is rigid. In place, it offers a good fit with buttons and gaps well aligned with the iPad's own, though its stiffness makes it a git to get on - bear this in mind if you plan to swap cases regularly. Otherwise, a nice product.

Cygnett SecondSkin

Classic silicone skin, but one which doesn't cover the iPad's power and volume buttons. Two bone-shaped pads on the back lift the iPad up off the deck when it's laid flat, but give it a slightly odd feel when you're holding it. The thin lips that folds over the edge of the iPad's front are a little too easy to dislodge.
