Encrypted Flash Drives For Linux and Mac

Kanguru Solutions : 06 September, 2010  (New Product)
The Kanguru Defender Elite encrypted thumb drive with AES 256 hardware encryption is now available for use on Mac and Linux platforms
Encrypted Flash Drives For Linux and Mac
Kanguru Solutions has added Mac and Linux to the list of compatible platforms for its Kanguru Defender Elite, manageable, secure flash drives.

The Kanguru Defender Elite offers security features including: 256-bit AES Hardware Encryption, Remote Management Capabilities, On-board Anti-Virus, Tamper Resistant Design, and FIPS 140-2 Certification. The addition of GUI support for Mac and Linux opens Kanguru's secure flash drives to a wider audience, allowing Mac and Linux users to benefit from its industry leading security features.

"The importance of cross platform functionality can't be overstated. Many organizations are utilizing more than one type of operating system in their day to day operations." said Don Brown, CEO of Kanguru Solutions. "Mac and Linux usage is an integral part of many organizations' IT infrastructure, so it is critical that our secure drives work with those systems."

The Kanguru Defender Elite's security features help organizations meet some of the strict new security regulations outlined in the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH ACT), and Massachusetts 201 CMR 17. These regulations and more like them in development can penalize organizations that aren't taking the necessary precautions to safeguard their data.

"Our goal has been to develop the most comprehensive set of security features ever built into a USB thumb drive." said Nate Cote, VP of Product Management. "And part of that includes making them work across various platforms. Encryption and remote management are only useful if they work within your organizations IT infrastructure."

The Kanguru Defender Elite currently works with:

* Windows XP and above
* Mac 10.5 and above
* Red Hat 5
* Ubuntu 10

Additional compatibility is in development for several other Linux distributions and connectivity options.
