In addition, Kanguru has also released the Defender Elite300™ SuperSpeed USB 3.0 secure flash drive sporting a handy physical write protect switch for quick and easy switching to and from “read-only” mode.  This is extremely useful in potentially vulnerable environments as it can protect the drive from being infected when plugged in with “read-only” mode, even if a virus or malware may be present on a host computer.  The Defender Elite300 flash drive is currently in process for FIPS 140-2 Certification. (July 2015)

“The launch of the Defender 3000 and Defender Elite300 continues to demonstrate Kanguru’s position as a global leader in the secure USB storage market,” says Nate Cote, Executive Vice President.  “These drives provide the most robust, yet practical, feature set that organizations really need to easily secure portable data for an increasingly mobile user base.”


Security, Performance & Convenience

Both the Kanguru Defender 3000 as well as the Kanguru Defender Elite300 are designed with financial, healthcare, and government environments in mind, with whom full compliance is usually required with high data security policies.  FIPS 140-2 Certification ensures organizations that the high-end 256 Bit AES Hardware Encryption, brute-force protection and tamper-proof protection is fully qualified to meet even the most demanding data security regulations. Now with SuperSpeed USB 3.0 technology, these new Defender drives also demonstrate high-performance transfer rates with up to 260MB/sec Read and 120MB/sec Write speeds depending on capacity, making it the most convenient secure flash drive on the market. Also as Kanguru is the only global USB manufacturer to achieve Common Criteria certification on certain flash drives, you can be confident Kanguru takes data security very seriously.


Remotely Manageable

Additionally, the Kanguru Defender 3000 is remotely manageable, an optional feature available either through a secure cloud interface or on a client’s self-hosted server.  Kanguru Remote Management Console (KRMC™) offers a huge benefit to organizations, providing administrator management for a fleet of company flash drives. With KRMC, organizations can:

  • Proactively enforce customized security policies on USB drives
  • Track and manage the whereabouts of USB drives
  • Disable or delete lost or stolen drives immediately
  • Restrict or grant online and offline permissions
  • Schedule password changes
  • And much more


Kanguru also offers full customization and engraving options for its USB drives as a handy way to add identity to important data on secure flash drives.  Include a company logo or physical serialization to track devices, implement an electronic identifier to interface with endpoint security programs, or perhaps engrave a phone number to call if the device is ever lost.
