Kanguru Solutions, manufacturer of secure, portable IT storage solutions, and BitDefender, provider of anti-malware security solutions, have partnered to provide antivirus protection to Kanguru Defender Elite Secure Flash Drives.

“Our partnership with Kanguru and their use of BitDefender's technology will further expand and increase the level of protection provided by Kanguru's flash drives to knock-out more threats before they have a chance to reach the user's computer.”

This strategic partnership combines the expertise of two data security leaders to create secure flash drives.

The Kanguru Defender Elite is a manageable, encrypted flash drive that utilizes 256-bit AES hardware encryption, is tamper resistant and can be remotely managed from anywhere in the world to ensure it is in compliance with organizational policies.

The addition of BitDefender's antivirus protection further enhances the Defender Elite's security with real-time virus and malware scanning. These anti-malware features prevent the drive from being used to spread malicious programs to unsuspecting host computers.

“Unprotected flash drives have become a vehicle for spreading malware to computers,” said Peter Laakkonen, general manager OEM and technology licensing at BitDefender. “Our partnership with Kanguru and their use of BitDefender's technology will further expand and increase the level of protection provided by Kanguru's flash drives to knock-out more threats before they have a chance to reach the user's computer.”

“Not only does the Kanguru Defender Elite protect your data, but it also helps to safeguard your computer as well.” added Noah Manders, product manager at Kanguru Solutions. “Our customers can rest easy knowing that when our drives are connected to their computer, they aren't bringing along any unwanted viruses or malware.”

This partnership is Kanguru's latest addition to its list of security solutions for flash drives. In addition to BitDefender's antivirus protection, Kanguru also offers robust remote management, connection and update services, and USB device control all centered around their hardware encrypted, tamper resistant flash drives.
