Kanguru Rolls Out Great New Features for Administrators Remotely Managing Encrypted USB

KRMC-Cloud StructurePress Release: Millis, MA, USA – March 29, 2017 – The Kanguru Remote Management Console (KRMC) is an exceptional solution for administrators of all types of security-conscious organizations to manage and protect sensitive data on hardware encrypted USB drives. Kanguru’s robust solution maximizes the security value of locally-stored hardware encrypted data and helps organizations comply with strict government regulations. Rather than organizations storing sensitive data within the cloud itself, KRMC takes advantage of the centralized remote management component of a cloud interface and hardware encrypted data stored locally on Kanguru Defender® secure storage drives for a hybrid approach. The Kanguru Remote Management Console uses the convenience of the cloud to allow administrators to customize security attributes and securely manage USB drives from anywhere, and end users have the durable protection of local storage fully-locked under hardware encryption where hackers cannot get in.  

Many organizations around the globe use KRMC on a daily basis to monitor and protect their sensitive information, and have provided feedback to Kanguru on a few new features they would like to see incorporated within their console. Kanguru appreciates and listens to their feedback, and in an effort to continue to make it easier, convenient and even more secure, Kanguru has added these great features for administrators.

New Features for Administrators in KRMC-Cloud:

  • 2-Factor Authentication (2FA)
  • License Calculator
  • Consolidated Actions
  • Parked Devices
  • Extended 3-Year Subscription Licenses

2-Factor Authentication provides Administrators with a two-way authentication process, to further ensure that the account cannot be compromised from unauthorized access.

The new License Calculator gives administrators a quick and convenient way to view soon-to-expire management licenses and make adjustments as needed to schedule renewals over their own timetable.

Consolidated Actions makes better use of sequencing and executing actions from administrators in the remote management application if they wish to override or contradict any previous action.

Parked Devices provide organizations that may have certain types of turnover or other internal complexities a way to “park” certain drives into a suspended state so as not to lose their licensed management connection capabilities while suspended.

Extended 3-Year license subscriptions make it convenient for administrators to “set it and forget it” by purchasing long-term licenses for devices that need to be managed for extended periods of time.
