Millis, MA, USA – January 18, 2023 – For customers of LastPass, a cloud-based repository for passwords, it has been quite a grueling experience following the troubling breach discovered last month impacting scores of users’ personal information, passwords, and other sensitive items along with a substantial aftermath. Though LastPass has attempted to explain the incident, numerous privacy folks have chimed in to claim that they’ve also tried to minimize the exposure, making a bad situation worse with a less than transparent response and leading security experts to encourage its 33 million users to seek an alternative password manager for their password security needs. A proven alternative solution is The Defender LifePlanner™ by Kanguru, a trusted global leader in robust data security products.
“The Kanguru Defender LifePlanner is the clear choice for users who had trusted LastPass with their passwords but are fed up with this latest breach,” says Nate Cote, Executive VP at Kanguru. “Kanguru’s patented security architecture leveraging a combination of two independent AES encryption implementations - one hardware, one software – is not susceptible to the same type of situation that arose with LastPass. The USB flash drive-based encryption technology of the Defender LifePlanner is entirely local and independent of the cloud or any SaaS integration, providing true security and trustworthy, dependable data protection.”

The Defender LifePlanner uses Kanguru’s robust FIPS 197 certified, AES 256-Bit cryptographic technology trusted by high-security military, defense and healthcare organizations around the world for over 30 years in their Defender® series of secure products. The Defender LifePlanner contains not just 1, but 2 independent levels of encryption wrapped around a locally-stored database on a hardware encrypted USB flash drive, along with 3 years of top-rated endpoint protection by Bitdefender® to form an enveloping fortress around passwords and personal information. This patented dual-layer security independent of the internet or cloud interface makes it nearly impossible for hackers to compromise your data.
