New Command Console for Your Defender® Hardware Encrypted Drive
All Defender® hardware encrypted drives will soon feature Kanguru's new, built-in Kanguru Command Console*, a free, intuitive, user-friendly interface that allows you to quickly view all of the settings, preferences and onboard applications of your Defender secure drive. As your Command Center, this Command Console is a convenient way to view how much space remains on the drive, your password preferences, your AntiVirus and SSPM Subscription status, new applications like the Onboard Browser, Drive Settings, Help Features, and much more.
The Command Console replaces the KDM icon in the taskbar, providing a much cleaner, easy-to-use interface to access all of the information specific to your secure USB drive including the On Board Browser. There is no need to purchase the Command Console, as it is standard with new Kanguru Defender Drives. If you are a customer with existing Defender drive(s) that are not currently carrying the Command Console, you can easily update your drives from the Kanguru Tech Support site. View the videos below, then follow the instructions for downloading the Command Console to update your drive. You may also contact Kanguru if you have further questions.
The update of the new Command Console is available now for the following drives:
Kanguru Defender Elite30
Kanguru Defender Bio-Elite30
