Introducing the New FIPS 140-2 Certified Defender Hard Drive

 

Ideas...

 

Ideas are powerful, there’s no disputing this. Ideas lead to innovations in all fields of expertise; everything begins with an idea. Ideas, simply put, build communities and improve the quality of life. Ideas save lives. It’s because of this simple fact that ideas deserve protection; protection of the highest quality. 

 

There is nothing more important to a successful business venture than data security management. Whether it is a public organization, a government bureau, or a private company, all require the same confidence and readiness in their administrative data protection and storage. So, why waste your time and money on substandard data protection, or worse, ignore it altogether which could lead to a costly data breach?

Kanguru Defender Line & Remote Management Portfolio Unaffected by Recently Discovered

 

You may have heard in the news recently about yet another discovery of a vulnerability called "ShellShock Vulnerability", a new weakness that could leave OS X and Linux open to possible attack. The potential exploit was discovered by Akamai security researcher Stephane Chazelas in September of 2014 and apparently has been around for years.

 

According to a September 25th article on PCWorld, this is even bigger than the Heartbleed discovery last year, but says that "While Heartbleed had the potential to be widely exploited, Jen Ellis of security firm Rapid7 says the Shellshock bug's outlook isn't quite as grim, even if it is rampant."

 

Experts are scrambling to develop a patch for this new discovery, and it's been found by security researchers that there may already be evidence of exploit attempts having been made on some servers out there.

 

Kanguru Products Unaffected by "Shellshock Vulnerability"

 

Never the less, Kanguru customers can be assured that Kanguru Defender products and the Kanguru Remote Management Portfolio is completely unaffected by "ShellShock Vulnerability". Kanguru engineers have looked into the matter and thoroughly determined that Kanguru products are immune to this newly-discovered bug.

 

Kanguru is a global leader in providing enterprise, government, military, healthcare, SMBs, organizations and consumers with the best in easy-to-use, secure portable IT data storage solutions.

Kanguru FlashTrust Protects Against the Threat of Firmware-Based Attack

 

What's so Special About the Kanguru FlashTrust?

FlashTrust is part of a next generation of standard USB Flash drives by Kanguru, a global leader in secure USB data storage. The company has integrated the same RSA-2048 bit digitally secured firmware used in its robust hardware encrypted secure drives, into this new unencrypted flash drive. It can be used at the consumer and organizational level as a great, affordable option for organizations that may have concerns about "badUSB" and are looking to protect against these types of firmware attacks.

The flash drive offers many benefits, in addition to protecting against the threat of firmware-based attacks. These include:

● Digitally-signed firmware, which protects against any outside, unauthorized tampering from unidentified sources.
● Self testing at startup, so the integrity of the firmware is verified. If the self-test fails, the USB module will cease to operate.
● SuperSpeed USB 3.0 for fast data transfer. It can read at speeds up to 230 MB and write at up to 85 MB.
● A physical write protect switch so users can choose to keep the device in read-only or read/write mode. A selectable mode is useful    especially if one has to connect the USB device to a potentially infected machine.
●A choice of storage capacities in quality, aluminum housing. FlashTrust devices come in affordable 8, 16, 32, 64, and 128 GB versions.

The Kanguru FlashTrust USB drive, therefore, offers a sophisticated level of data protection for organisations where other flash drives do not. They are ideal for enterprise security and in organisations where a potential threat of malware and viruses could be a problem.

 

How Can You Protect Your Organisation?

 

It seems tech-savvy hackers will go to all lengths now-a-days to create a devastating and unassuming attack on information. A tampered USB device could potentially spread malware throughout an organisation - wreaking havoc on its most important asset - company data. If USB devices are entering your organisation from unidentified sources, there is the potential that hackers could tamper with the firmware to inflict harm on your network. As a result, some organisations may consider ruling out USB flash drives altogether, a detrimental move that sacrifices business convenience. Or they may move to conduct business and store data strictly within the cloud, which opens up a whole other range of issues from possible intermittent service downtime, unauthorised access, and even more potential hacking issues.

Rather than "throw the baby out with the bathwater," simply make a company standard that if unencrypted flash drives are used to transfer company information, only Kanguru FlashTrust secure firmware flash drives are allowed within your network. This will not only maintain the convenience USB flash drives are best known for, but also provide the assurance that the drives are completely safe for your network.
