The Defender SDD300™ provides enterprise organizations with military-grade data protection at its best. With FIPS 140-2 Certified, highly-secure 256-AES hardware encryption (XTS Mode), high-speed USB 3.0 (USB 3.2 Gen 1x1) data transfer rates, onboard AntiVirus(1) by award-winning BitDefender®, and optional remote management capabilities, it’s simply the best option for securing sensitive data. Rather than become subject to the vulnerabilities of cloud storage outages and expensive fees, locking down data in this secure USB storage device isolates it from viruses, malware, spyware and other internet dangers. Organizations can be confident and in full control of their data at all times.

Additionally, with optional remote management capabilities, administrators can be further in control by remotely managing the Defender SSD300 anywhere in the world, even with other Kanguru Defender® drives. Kanguru Remote Management Console (KRMC™) provides simple, intuitive tools for tracking and managing data to ensure compliance with even the toughest security policies and regulations.

The Defender SSD300 FIPS 140-2 certified SSD has automatic data encryption built in, so there’s no software to install, and no admin rights needed for use.
In the background is a powerful cryptographic engine to ensure your data is secure. In addition, the Defender SSD300 is now available with a colossal 4TB and 8TB storage capacities!

FIPS 197 Certified 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 SSD300 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.

The Kanguru Defender SSD300 hardware encrypted SSD has achieved Level 2, 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 2 threshold of FIPS 140-2, the Defender SSD300 has strong, tamper evident protections in place to prevent unauthorized access, attack, or brute force attempts to gain access to the sensitive data.

Protect even more than just your data. Protect your network and infrastructure as well from malware tampering with built-in Secure Firmware. Designed in compliance with NIST's requirements for securing device firmware, this drive is protected from "badUSB" to prevent malware attacks by a third-party. This makes it an ideal, trusted encrypted USB drive for whitelisting in an endpoint security environment.

This hardware encrypted SSD300 offers USB 3.0 technology (USB 3.2 Gen 1x1) for lightning-fast data transfers. Connecting the Defender SSD300 to a USB 3.0 supported USB port provides superior read / write speeds for quick, easy and convenient transfer of data.

The Kanguru Defender SSD300 hardware encrypted SSD comes with integrated onboard AntiVirus by BitDefender® (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.

The Kanguru Defender SSD300 prevents physical access to the chip. Any subversive attempt to remove or tamper with the chip destroys it, rendering it unusable and inaccessible.

Using Kanguru Remote Management Console™ (KRMC)™, this optional feature gives you the ability to control an entire fleet of hardware encrypted 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.

All Kanguru Defender drives can be special ordered with customized options such as engraved logos, text and unique identifiers for quantity orders. Contact a Kanguru Sales Representative about customizing your order at (508) 376-4245, or email us at sales@kanguru.com.
