Kanguru Defender 3000™

FIPS 140-2 Level 3, SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Hardware Encrypted USB Flash Drive

The Kanguru Defender 3000™ is the fastest, most advanced, secure, hardware encrypted flash drive in the world. Designed to address the most demanding security standards, this Superspeed USB 3.0, AES 256-bit hardware encrypted flash drive is ideal for keeping sensitive government, financial or corporate information highly secure.

Combining high level security with ultra-fast USB 3.0 speed and FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certification, the Kanguru Defender 3000 is an impressive secure flash drive. It also includes robust anti-virus and tamper-resistant protection, as well as remote management capabilities and TAA Compliance for the most comprehensive security solution available in a hardware encrypted flash drive. 

Furthermore, all Kanguru Defender® USB drives are fully protected from any potential risks associated with "BadUSB". The Defender 3000 proves unequivocally that it meets and surpasses the most stringent federal, healthcare and financial industry security regulations in the world.

256-bit AES Hardware Encryption (XTS Mode)

The Kanguru Defender 3000 uses FIPS validated AES 256-bit Hardware encryption (XTS-Mode) to secure data contents stored on the USB drive. Since the cryptographic processes are all done in hardware, there is virtually no performance impact when transferring data, unlike the severe performance impact when using software encryption programs. XTS-mode also provides enhanced security when used to encrypt large blocks of data (as in GB’s) as it eliminates certain vulnerabilities and patterns which might be exploited in earlier symmetric key implementations. In addition, the password matching and other security operations are all done in the secure confines of the tamper-resistant, epoxy encapsulated cryptographic processor. In short, your data can not be compromised.

FIPS 104-2 Certification, Level 3

This secure flash drive is FIPS 140-2 Certified, Level 3, a high-level certification that helps organisations meet and exceed the high demands of security regulations and standards including HIPAA, Sarbanes Oxley, GLBA, etc..

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 3 threshold of FIPS 140-2, the Defender 3000 has strong, tamper evident protections in place to prevent unauthorized access, attack, or brute force attempts to gain access to the sensitive data.

RSA-2048, Digitally-Signed Secure Firmware

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.

SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Interface

This hardware encrypted thumb drive offers USB 3.0 technology for lightning-fast data transfers, while also maintaining compatibility with USB 2.0. Connecting the Defender 3000 to a USB 3.0 supported USB port provides superior read / write speeds for quick, easy and convenient transfer of data.

On-Board AntiVirus by BitDefender®

Every Kanguru Defender hardware encrypted flash drive comes with integrated onboard antivirus by award-winning BitDefender (30-day FREE trial)(1). Built right into the flash drive, the antivirus consistently scans the drive in the background, ensuring that all of your files will be safe and protected from viruses.

Tamper Proof Design

The Kanguru Defender 3000’s casing is protected 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 robust, optional feature gives the ability for a security administrator to control an entire fleet of Defender hardware encrypted drive(s) from anywhere in the world. KRMC provides clients with a choice between two convenient management systemsSecure Cloud interface OR 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. With Kanguru Self-Service Password Management, you won't have to worry about it. Learn more about Self-Service Password Management.
