One of the standard responses to mobile device security risks is to lock down all USB ports on the network and create a white-list of approved devices.  Most 3rd-party Endpoint Security solutions will enforce policies based on the flash drive Brand and Model.  (e.g. Allow this model, but block all others.)  Kanguru encrypted flash drives can be customized with Unique ID's to offer an additional level of granularity and accountability.

Upon request, Kanguru can burn a unique electronic Device ID on each flash drive.  Now employees can be tied to a specific device and usage will be tracked and audited.  In addition, security policies can be customized for each individual drive.  Administrators will quickly be alerted if an employee attempts to use a device that is not assigned to them, even if it is the same make and model as the approved drive.  The Device ID can also be engraved on the outside of the device for quick identification.

Unique ID's are available on Kanguru Defender, Defender Pro and Bio AES flash drives by request.
