Designed to address strict industry security standards, this AES 256-bit hardware encrypted flash drive is ideal for carrying sensitive government or corporate information.  It combines several high-level hardware encryption models and certifications, robust anti-virus and tamper-resistant protections, a physical write-protect switch, and remote management capabilities to make the Defender Elite200 the most comprehensive USB security solution available in an encrypted flash drive. Furthermore, all Kanguru Defender USB drives are fully protected from any potential risks associated with "badUSB".

AES 256-bit Hardware Encryption

AES 256-bit hardware encryption is the backbone of the Defender Elite200's security, providing top tier performance unmatched by software encryption solutions. In addition, the Defender Elite200 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 Level 2 Certified

The Kanguru Defender Elite200 hardware-encrypted USB flash drive has been independently tested and certified to FIPS 140-2, Level 2 standards.  FIPS 140-2 certification is a rigorous federal security accreditation program managed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology and sets the standard for encryption modules intended for use in protecting highly-volatile, sensitive government information. 

Common Criteria Accredited

The Defender Elite200 secure flash drive is Common Criteria Certified to meet the highest of standards. 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 final product and overall use.

Onboard Anti-Virus

Every Kanguru Defender Elite200 comes with an integrated onboard anti-virus (30-day FREE trial).  Built right into the 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 Elite200 casing is filled with an epoxy compound that is water resistant and prevents physical access to the chip. Any 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 your Defender Elite200 secure flash drive(s) from anywhere in the world. Remotely delete drives that have been lost or stolen, manage passwords (strength, updates and remote resets), and ensure compliance with set security policies and much more.

Self-Service Password Management
