 Wednesday, February 5, 2014


Millis, MA - February 5, 2014 - Kanguru Solutions, an industry pioneer in providing top-of-the-line, cost-effective, hardware encrypted USB data storage, has added a new military-grade, secure flash drive to its arsenal. The Defender Elite200™ joins Kanguru’s secure Defender line as a robust and affordable USB security device for protecting the sensitive information of any portable data workforce.


An Ideal Component for Meeting Stringent Security Regulations

Kanguru is committed to helping organizations easily protect important and sensitive data, and continues to expand its encrypted USB Defender line with a variety of convenient, government certified, secure products to simplify the task. The military-grade, government certified FIPS 140-2 Level 2, AES 256-Bit hardware encrypted USB flash drive is no exception, and earns its keep at addressing even the most demanding regulatory standards like HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, ISO, GLBA, and FISMA, to name a few.


The Only FIPS 140-2 Level 2 Certified Drive with a Physical Write Protect Switch

The Kanguru Defender Elite200, along with the Defender Elite and Defender Basic+ are the only FIPS 140-2 Level 2 Certified, encrypted flash keys on the market with a handy physical write protect switch for easy on or off Read/Write, Read-Only capability, providing an added layer of data protection in a busy, mobile environment.


Remotely Manageable From Anywhere in the World

Another commanding security feature for the Kanguru Defender Elite200 is its remote management capability. All Kanguru Defender secure USB devices are remote management ready and with the optional purchase of Kanguru Remote Management Console, (KRMC™), Kanguru Defender drives become a remarkable workhorse. Remote/Central management is a key component for maintaining a robust end-point data security environment, offering complete control of an organization’s encrypted USB drives all around the world containing sensitive information. With Kanguru Remote Management, an administrator can centrally manage their fleet of encrypted USB drives through an SSL/TLS communications secure network. Using either a cloud interface or self-hosted server, administrators can immediately delete or wipe lost or stolen USB drives, require password updates, report on a drive’s location and restrict access through trusted IP Addresses or domains. This is an ideal way to manage corporate or personal patient data, client financials, medical and sensitive identity information inside and outside of the workplace.


In Process to Exceed Regulations with EAL2+ Common Criteria

Along with its FIPS 140-2, Level 2 Certification, the Kanguru Defender Elite200 is also in the process of being evaluated for EAL2+ Common Criteria. CC is an accreditation process adopted by over 24 different certifying nations through the CCRA (Common Criteria Recognition Agreement). Under the National Information Assurance Partnership, (NIAP), which is a branch of the Department of Defense, Common Criteria involves an extended and rigorous evaluation of the overall design, development, release and support of a product - beyond even FIPS 140-2 standards. This added benefit to the user provides exceptional confidence and peace of mind that Kanguru’s secure product set adheres to the highest evaluation processes and certifications, and will exceed even the most stringent data security regulations.
