Full Description

Kanguru Remote Management Console (KRMC)™ Enterprise Edition 8 is a robust self-contained virtual appliance management system for administrators of Enterprise organizations, providing the ability to manage and monitor the use of the company's secure, hardware encrypted Defender USB drives and meet high security standards and compliance.

When a supported Kanguru Defender® Encrypted USB device is connected to a computer with a network or internet connection, an administrator will be able to view detailed information and activity reports about the device. KRMC allows the administrator to monitor where the device is connected and the hostname of the computer. If the administrator has chosen to delete a device's data, the audit function will verify when the remote deletion occurs. An administrator can export audit logs, allowing compatibility with applications such as Excel and databases. User and administrator activities can be logged for various regulatory compliance.

KRMC Enterprise is Kanguru's fully-integrated software / hardware remote management system for managing and monitoring Kanguru Defender secure USB drives. KRMC Enterprise makes it easier than ever for Administrators to manage the data assets and enforce the security policies of the organization.
