Product Description

The Kanguru Defender Basic+™ hardware encrypted flash drive offers industry leading security features at an attractive price. Designed for commercial use, it offers top notch security features such as 256-bit hardware encryption, onboard anti-virus, remote management capabilities, a physical write protection switch and more. It is also both Windows and Mac Compatible.

256-bit Hardware Encryption

Hardware encryption is the backbone of the Defender Basic+'s security, providing top tier performance unmatched by software encryption solutions. In addition, Password matching and security functions are contained in the cryptographic chip, meaning that the encryption can't be circumvented, further ensuring your data's security.

Onboard Anti-Virus

Every Kanguru Defender Basic+ comes with an integrated onboard anti-virus (30-day FREE trial).  Built into the drive, this feature prevents the Kanguru Defender Basic+ from being used as a vehicle for transporting viruses and malware. The anti-virus can also be used to scan the host computer(s), in effect becoming a portable anti-virus solution for every PC you work on.

Remotely Manageable

Using Kanguru Remote Management Console (KRMC), this optional feature gives you the ability to control your Defender Basic+ flash drive(s) from anywhere in the world. Remotely delete drives that have been lost or stolen, manage passwords (strength, updates and remote resets), and ensure drives are in compliance with set security policies and much more.


Kanguru Defender Basic+ can be special ordered with customized options such as engraved logos/text, custom colors, and unique identifiers for quantity orders. Contact a Kanguru Sales Representative about customizing your order at (508) 376-4245, or email us at sales@kanguru.com.
