MILLIS, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--With growing concerns over potential firmware-based malware attacks, organizations around the world are turning to Kanguru trusted USB devices with secure firmware to protect their networks and infrastructure. Used in conjunction with endpoint protection or an internal security policy, Kanguru's secure firmware USB drives arm IT professionals with a strong layer of defense against third-party malware attacks.
Kanguru provides a full range of robust Secure Firmware USB devices:
- Kanguru Defender® Hardware Encrypted USB Drives
- Kanguru FlashTrust™ Non-Encrypted USB Flash Drive
- Kanguru UltraLock™ External Hard Drive
- Kanguru UltraLock™ External Solid State Drive
- Kanguru QS Slim DVDRW DVD Burner
- Kanguru QS Slim BD-RE Blu-ray Burner
The Kanguru UltraLock™ External Hard Drives (HDD) and UltraLock™ External Solid State Drives (SSD) are among the most recent additions to the trusted, secure firmware USB family. The Ultralock's internal controller self-checks the digital signature of the firmware at startup, and verifies that the signature is valid. If the firmware has been modified in any way by a third party, the signature validation will fail and the device will cease operation, preventing a firmware-based attack.
Handy Physical Write Protect Switch
Most of Kanguru’s secure firmware USB devices, including the Kanguru UltraLock external HDD and SSD models, come with a handy physical write protect switch to be able to toggle back and forth from read/write to read-only mode. This is another great benefit to help prevent viruses and trojans from entering the device when switched to read-only mode. IT Professionals find this a very useful feature for analyzing and making repairs to infected computers.
The Kanguru UltraLock Hard Drive is available in capacities of up to 4T. Prices start at $99.95. To learn more about Kanguru Secure Firmware USB devices, please call Kanguru at (1) 800-KANGURU, or visit www.kanguru.com.
