Product Description

The Kanguru Defender 2000™ is the most advanced, easy-to-use, secure flash drive in the world. Designed to address stringent security standards, this hardware encrypted device is ideal for keeping sensitive government, financial or corporate information highly secure, yet conveniently portable. It combines several high level hardware encryption models and certifications, robust anti-virus and tamper-resistant protections, as well as remote management capabilities for the most comprehensive security solution available in an encrypted flash drive.

256-bit AES Hardware Encryption

Hardware encryption is the backbone of the Defender 2000's security, providing top tier performance unmatched by software encryption solutions. In addition, Password matching and security functions are contained in the cryptographic chip, meaning that the encryption can't be circumvented, further ensuring your data's security.

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

The Kanguru Defender 2000 flash drive has completed the FIPS 140-2 Certification process, Level 3. FIPS 140-2, a rigorous federal security accreditation program managed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), sets the standard for encryption modules intended for use in protecting sensitive government information.

Common Criteria EAL2+

The Defender 2000 meets Common Criteria EAL2+ 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. Learn more

Onboard Anti-Virus

Every Kanguru Defender 2000 encrypted flash drive comes with an integrated onboard anti-virus (30-day FREE trial). Built right into the drive, this feature prevents the Kanguru Defender 2000 from being used as a vehicle for transporting viruses and malware. The anti-virus can also be used to scan the host computer(s), in effect becoming a portable anti-virus solution for every PC you work on.

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 secure 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.
