Open the device and click on the "lock" towards the "more actions" menu.

 That lock button just does a screen lock on Windows.  On Mac it will prompt you for a lock pin code.

For Windows devices the best way to lock down a device is to change the BIOS password. For this you will need to deploy Dell Command | Monitor to all devices and then configure a Profile to change the BIOS password.

Unfortunately this only works for Dell devices and requires some set up. Not nearly as easy to lock down a Mac.

Lenovo Absolute also known as CompuTrace/LoJack will be your best bet.  It should work on any Windows device (not just Lenovo) and will allow you to brick the device.
