Product Description

Being OS Platform Agnostic, the drive can be used on any machine (computer, kiosk, medical devices, smart TVs, Android phones, etc.) without any initial configuration or setup(3).

The Defender Bio-Elite30 fingerprint encrypted USB drive has a huge advantage over leading USB encryption devices that require bulky pinpads or an inner battery that can fail at the worst possible moment. Being entirely USB-powered with fingerprint access, there is no battery or fussy combo keypads to worry about. Just insert, tap, and go.

The Defender Bio-Elite30 also comes with Kanguru's newest user-friendly interface: the Defender Command Console.

Protect even more than just your data. Protect your network and infrastructure as well from malware tampering with built-in RSA-2048, Digitally-Signed 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. In the event of such an attack, the drive is designed to shut down, preventing the flash drive from being used as a vehicle for hackers. This makes it an ideal, trusted encrypted USB drive for whitelisting in an endpoint security environment.



Onboard, World-Class AntiVirus by BitDefender

Every Kanguru Defender hardware encrypted USB drive comes with integrated on-board anti-virus by Award-Winning BitDefender (30-day FREE trial).  Built right into the drive itself, the anti-virus consistently scans the drive in the background, ensuring that all of your files will be safe and protected from viruses, malware or spyware.e.

Remotely Manageable

Using Kanguru Remote Management Console™ (KRMC)™, this robust, optional feature allows a security administrator to control their organizations' entire fleet of Defender hardware encrypted drive(s) from anywhere in the world. KRMC provides clients with a choice between two convenient management systems:

         1. Secure Cloud Interface
         2. Self-hosted Enterprise on client's secure server

As the administrator, you can remotely wipe and/or delete drives that are lost or stolen, manage device configurations (passwords, policies, and activity), ensure drives are in compliance with set security policies, and much more.



Self-Service Password Management

If you've ever forgotten your password, you know how upsetting it can be to not be able to access your data. Although the Defender Bio-Elite30 is a fingerprint drive, it also provides the traditional option of a password. Should your fingerprint not work, and you forget your password, SSPM is an ideal secure solution to quickly reset your password. With an optional subscription to Kanguru Self-Service Password Management, you won't have to worry about losing access to your data. Learn more about Self-Service Password Management.
