The Kanguru Defender HDD350 hardware encrypted hard drive has achieved Level 2, FIPS 140-2 Certification.

Meet the most stringent federal, healthcare and financial industry security regulations, including GDPR, HIPAA, Sarbanes Oxley, GLBA, and more with this FIPS 140-2 Certified hardware encrypted USB hard drive. 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 2 threshold of FIPS 140-2, the Defender HDD350 has strong, tamper-evident protections in place to prevent unauthorized access, attack, or brute force attempts to gain access to the sensitive data.

AES 256-bit Hardware encryption is the backbone of every Kanguru Defender drive's security, providing top tier performance unmatched by software encryption solutions. In addition, the Defender HDD350 utilizes XTS Mode, the best encryption module available today, along with password matching and security functions contained in the cryptographic chip, meaning that the encryption can not be compromised, further ensuring your data's security.
