Kanguru Press Release 7.17.13


The most secure USB hardware encrypted flash drive, Kanguru Defender 2000™, has successfully upgraded its FIPS 140-2 Certification to Level 3, unequivocally demonstrating its ability to protect sensitive financial, personal or healthcare information against unauthorized access or data breach.


Millis Massachusetts - July 17, 2013 - The world’s most secure and remotely manageable USB flash drive has successfully upgraded its FIPS 140-2 Certification from Level 2 to Level 3, demonstrating that it meets and surpasses the sensitive data security regulations of the most demanding and security conscious organizations. By achieving FIPS 140-2 Level 3 Certification, the Kanguru Defender 2000™ developed by Kanguru Solutions proves unequivocally that it can protect against unauthorized access or intrusion of its sensitive data contained within, preventing a breach of financial, personal, or healthcare information.

With recent headlines revealing some of the sobering dangers of using insecure, unmanaged methods of storing data, numerous organizations have been at the mercy of punishing lawsuits, expensive court battles, and backlash resulting from the destructive exposure of sensitive information. The Kanguru Defender 2000 hardware encrypted flash drive is developed specifically to counter these types of dangers, and secure and protect sensitive information in an enterprise or government setting at the highest level of data protection. Designed by Kanguru as the world’s most advanced, secure, hardware encrypted flash drive, its security features are like no other in the industry, including its remote manageability. The Defender 2000 is ruggedized and waterproof to handle the elements in any type of environment, and carries a price point that won’t drain an organization’s budget.

FIPS 140-2 is a joint Certification program between NIST (National Institute of Standards) in the United States, and CSE (Communications Security Establishment) in Canada. It provides government guidelines regarding the security evaluation for cryptographic modules. Kanguru Solutions demonstrates that by meeting the level 3 threshold of FIPS 140-2, the Defender 2000 has strong, tamper evident protections in place to prevent attacks that attempt to gain unauthorized access to the sensitive data.

Along with FIPS Level 3 Certification, the Defender 2000 provides robust AES 256-bit hardware encryption, real-time anti-virus, optional local or cloud based remote management capabilities, an abundance of data storage space, and a solid waterproof tactile finish that feels like a small bar of gold in the hand. The Kanguru Defender 2000 affirms the sensitive data it carries is secure in every way.

“It's solid and heavy enough that you could easily pull a David to an attacker's Goliath as a self-defense tactic,” states Jon Jacobi, Contributing Journalist for PC World.

Organizations and business owners will also be pleased to hear about the optional remote management capabilities available for all Defender USB devices. Kanguru Remote management Console (KRMC) enables an administrator or business owner to monitor, track, manage, update, delete or wipe any assigned Defender flash drive or hard drive from anywhere in the world through encrypted internet communications, providing a vast system for which to maintain and preserve the organization’s highly confidential and proprietary data. The defensive benefits of being able to remotely track, configure, update, manage passwords, delete lost or stolen units, and set compliance and security policies for an entire fleet of drives is unsurpassed, and can be administered instantly from anywhere. Kanguru’s robust Remote Management tools are available in self-hosted or cloud versions.


“We are making it so easy for organizations to keep sensitive and important data safe,” says Kanguru’s CEO, Don Brown, “that they can easily comply with even the toughest data security laws and regulations.”


The Kanguru Defender 2000 addresses all data security concerns, works with native Windows, Mac & Linux platforms, supports secure, remote software updates and is available in capacities of up to 128GB. Now with its FIPS 140-2 Level 3 Certification, the world’s most powerful flash drive makes an extraordinary defense against any data security breach or identity theft.
