Kanguru Defender Enters Common Criteria Evaluation

Kanguru Solutions : 30 May, 2011  (New Product)
International security evaluation program to assess Kanguru's Defender and Remote Management Console for stringent government security standards
Kanguru Defender Enters Common Criteria Evaluation

The Kanguru Defender family of  secure, encrypted USB drives and Kanguru Remote Management Console (KRMC) have entered into the Common Criteria evaluation process for information security.


Common Criteria is an internationally recognized security evaluation program developed to ensure an information technology product or services meets a variety of robust government security standards.  There are currently 36 nations, around the world, which mutually recognize the merits of the Common Criteria Standard.


The testing level has been designated as Evaluation Assurance Level 2 Augmented (EAL2+); meeting level 2 assurances while being augmented with flaw remediation.  The evaluation process is being conducted by atsec information security (accredited in the US, Germany and Sweden), and overseen by the German Federal Office for Information Security (Bundesamt fur Sichereit in der Informationstechnik (BSI)).


“By undergoing the Common Criteria evaluation, we have positioned ourselves as one of the leaders in secure portable storage” said Don Brown, CEO of Kanguru. “This, along with our current FIPS 140-2 Validations, helps distinguish our products and services as some of the most secure in the portable storage industry.”


Ken Hake, Laboratory Manager for atsec, commented: “atsec is pleased to be undertaking this evaluation effort with a product having a very tight coupling of hardware and software. We will also work to demonstrate that it is compliant with the Common Criteria Protection Profile for USB Storage Media. Version 1.4”


Some of the security features currently offered by Kanguru’s products include:


* 256-bit AES Hardware Encryption

* Remote Management (Remote disable/delete, password reset, domain restriction, etc.)

* Master Password Support

* Tamper Resistant Design

* GUI support for Windows, Mac, and Linux operation


“The Kanguru Defender product family addresses three very popular features;” said Don Brown, CEO of Kanguru Solutions. “Strong, manageable security, reasonable cost, and ease of use for both end users and enterprise rollouts.”
