Full Product Description

The Kanguru Defender Elite300™ is designed to address the most demanding security standards for highly secure, fast-paced environments. With its FIPS 140-2 Certification, this Superspeed USB 3.0, hardware encrypted flash drive is ideal for keeping sensitive government, financial or corporate information highly secure.

Combining high level security AES 256-bit hardware encryption with ultra-fast USB 3.0 speed and FIPS 140-2 certification, the Kanguru Defender Elite300 is an impressive secure flash drive. Along with a physical write protect switch, 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 Elite300 surpasses the most stringent federal, healthcare and financial industry security regulations in the world.


256-bit AES Hardware Encryption (XTS Mode)

The Kanguru Defender Elite300 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 140-2 Certification (Certificate #2442)

The Kanguru Defender Elite300 hardware encrypted, secure flash drive is FIPS 140-2 Certified.

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 Elite300 has strong, tamper evident protections in place to prevent unauthorized access, attack, or brute force attempts to gain access to the sensitive data.


SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Interface

The Kanguru Defender Elite300 offers USB 3.0 technology for lightning-fast data transfers, while also maintaining compatibility with USB 2.0. Connecting the Defender Elite300 to a USB 3.0 supported USB port provides superior read / write speeds for quick, easy and convenient transfer of data.


Onboard Anti-Virus

Every Kanguru Defender Elite300 hardware encrypted flash drive comes with an integrated onboard anti-virus (30-day FREE trial)(1).  Built right into the flash drive, the anti-virus consistently scans the drive in the background, adding a layer of defense to protect your files from viruses, malware or spyware.


Tamper Proof Design

The Kanguru Defender Elite300’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 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. With Kanguru Self-Service Password Management, you won't have to worry about it. Learn more about Self-Service Password Management.
