AES 256-bit Hardware Encryption

AES 256-bit hardware encryption is the backbone of the Defender 2000's security, providing top tier performance unmatched by software encryption solutions. In addition, the Defender 2000 utilizes password matching, secure firmware and other security functions contained in the cryptographic chip which can not be compromised, further ensuring your data's security.

FIPS 140-2 Certification, Level 3 (Cert # 1981)

The Kanguru Defender 2000 hardware-encrypted flash drive has achieved Level 3, FIPS 140-2 Certification.

FIPS 140-2 is a joint Certification program between NIST (National Institute of Standards) in the United States and CSE (Communications Security Establishment) in Canada. It provides government guidelines regarding the security evaluation for cryptographic modules.  Kanguru Solutions demonstrates that by meeting the level 3 threshold of FIPS 140-2, the Defender 2000 has strong, tamper-evident protections in place to prevent unauthorized access, attack, or brute force attempts to gain access to the sensitive data.

Common Criteria Certification

The Defender 2000 secure flash drive has achieved Common Criteria Accreditation. Common Criteria is an accreditation process adopted by over 24 different certifying nations and is a much wider review process of the overall product design and functionality than FIPS. It covers the product from its inception to the final product and overall use.

Onboard Anti-Virus

Every Kanguru Defender 2000 hardware-encrypted flash drive comes with an integrated onboard anti-virus (30-day FREE trial).  Built right into the flash drive, the anti-virus consistently scans the drive in the background, ensuring that all of your files will be safe and protected from viruses.

Tamper Proof Design

The Kanguru Defender 2000’s casing is filled with an epoxy compound that is water-resistant and prevents physical access to the chip. Any subversive attempt to remove the epoxy compound destroys the flash chip, rendering it unusable and inaccessible.

Remotely Manageable

Using Kanguru Remote Management Console™ (KRMC)™, this optional feature gives you the ability to control an entire fleet of Defender 2000 hardware-encrypted flash drive(s) from anywhere in the world. As the administrator, you can remotely delete drives that have been lost or stolen, manage passwords (strength, updates and remote resets), and ensure drives are in compliance with set security policies and much more.

Self-Service Password Management

If you've ever forgotten your password, you know how upsetting it can be to not be able to access your data. With Kanguru Self-Service Password Management, you won't have to worry about it. Learn more about Self-Service Password Management.
