Kanguru’s Defender 3000™ is Now Level 3 FIPS 140-2 Certified

In the incredibly vulnerable digital world, data is a valuable commodity and one that is always at risk of theft, corruption, and loss. However, proper data security measures can protect digital data and keep vital information secure.

Recently, Kanguru released the level 3 FIPS 140-2 certified, SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Defender 3000™ flash drive. With it’s combination of SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and rigorous security standards, the Defender 3000™ flash drive becomes one of the most powerful data storage devices ever built.

Kanguru’s Defender 3000™ is Now Level 3 FIPS 140-2 Certified

Kanguru has been a powerhouse name in the data storage device industry for some time, so it’s no surprise that they have produced such an ultra-secure flash drive in the Defender 3000™. While several Kanguru products possess a government recognized FIPS 140-2 certification, the level 3 FIPS 140-2 certification is held by just a few of the Kanguru storage devices, including the Defender 2000™, Defender 3000™, and the soon to be certified Defender Elite300™.

FIPS 140-2 Certification

FIPS 140-2 certified devices are regarded as some of the most secure data storage devices. FIPS 140-2, which stands for Federal Information Processing Standard 140-2, is a set of security requirements for cryptographic modules. The FIPS 140-2 certification process is handled by a joint committee between the American NIST (National Institute for Standards and Technology) and the Canadian CSE (Communications Security Establishment), called CMVP (Cryptographic Module Validation Program). It’s a globally recognized certification, and one that requires an immense amount of security measures to be in place.

There are 4 levels of FIPS 140-2 certification, and to be awarded any level of FIPS 140-2 certification is an accomplishment. To be level 3, like the Defender 3000™ flash drive, is astonishing. The level 3 FIPS 140-2 certification means that 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.

Other Security Measures

Aside from being level 3 FIPS 140-2 certified, the new Defender 3000™ flash drive from Kanguru contains AES 256-bit hardware encryption, which protects the device where software encryption falls short. In addition, the Defender 3000™ flash drive is in compliance with industry security standards, such as HIPAA, and with TAA (Trade Agreements Act) policies. The onboard anti-virus protection software scans the device constantly, keeping your files safe from any viral attacks. The backbone of the Defender 3000’s security is the AES 256-bit hardware encryption, which protects the device where software encryption falls short.

Other Features

The SuperSpeed USB 3.0 makes the Defender 3000™ flash drive one of the fastest portable data storage devices. The remote management capabilities add functionality that is unparalleled in the data storage device industry. Compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux, the Defender 3000™ flash drive comes in 4 GB, 8 GB, 16 GB, 32 GB, 64 GB, 128 GB options, and Kanguru even offers the ability to have a custom engraving. Its rugged alloy casing makes the Defender 3000™ flash drive waterproof, and the epoxy tamper proof.

Kanguru Defender Elite300™ Flash Drive

In addition to the recent release of the Defender 3000™ flash drive, Kanguru also plans to unveil another level 3 FIPS 140-2 certified data storage device - the Kanguru Defender Elite300™ flash drive. This upcoming flash drive will mark Kanguru’s third level 3 FIPS 140-2 certified product, adding to their portfolio of powerful, quick, and secure data storage devices.

With a line of promising products, and a handful of new level 3 FIPS 140-2 certified devices, Kanguru continues to exhibit their force as a global leader in the USB data storage device industry. Whether your organization handles protected health information (PHI), or maintains the records of governmental officials, there is no better device for the job than the Kanguru Defender 3000™ flash drive.
