The Kanguru Defender Elite is the world’s most manageable, secure flash drive meeting government, healthcare and financial industry standards. It is ideal for carrying sensitive government or corporate information. It combines high level, 256-bit AES hardware encryption, FIPS 140-2 Level 2 Certification, onboard anti-virus, tamper resistant design and remote management capabilities for the most comprehensive security solution ever in a USB2.0 flash drive.

  • newegg 256-bit Hardware Encryption The backbone of the Defender Elite’s security, hardware encryption provides top tier performance unmatched by software encryption solutions. In addition, on chip password matching means that the encryption can’t be circumvented; insuring your data’s security.
  • newegg FIPS 140-2 Level 2 Certified (Cert # 1270) FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standards) 140-2, a rigorous federal security accreditation program managed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, sets the standard for encryption modules intended for use in protecting sensitive government information.
  • newegg Onboard Anti-Virus Every Kanguru Defender Elite comes with a free one year subscription to BitDefender Anti-Virus. Built right into the drive, this feature prevents the Kanguru Defender Elite 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.
  • newegg Tamper Resistant Design The Kanguru Defender Elite’s casing is filled with an epoxy compound that is water resistant and prevents physical access to the chip. Any attempt to remove the epoxy compound destroys the flash chip, rendering it unusable and inaccessible.
  • newegg Remote Management Using Kanguru Remote Management Console (KRMC), this optional feature gives you the ability to control your Defender Elite 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.
  • newegg Windows, Mac and Linux Compatible The Kanguru Defender Elite is compatible with Windows XP / 2003 / Vista / 7, Mac OS X 10.5+ (Intel based only) and Linux (Ubuntu 10+, Red Hat 5+) platforms, providing industry leading security and manageability to a wider range of users.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Write-protect switch is handy when dealing with virus-infested machines. Activity light is handy so you know if it's actually doing something or if the machine is locked up.

Cons: The software that unlocks the encrypted volume crashes more often than I like. It always complains about improper removal last time you used it no matter what method you used. There is no support. I originally tried contacting the company about a problem but never received an answer. I ended up sending it back to Newegg and buying this model.

Other Thoughts: On-device password entry would be even better.
