Along with AES 256-Bit hardware encryption, FIPS 140-2 Certification, and Remote Management capabilities and on‐board anti‐virus software, the Kanguru Defender Elite300™ comes with an impressive physical write protect switch. The physical write protect switch provides additional security protection, with the option to quickly and easily toggle between read/write, or read‐only protection.
