Kanguru Solutions


Every organization has different security needs.  What works for one, may not work for another. 

Size, budget, personnel, and structure all play a factor in determining what an organization can and will do in terms of IT security.  As such, there generally is no “one size fits all” solution when it comes to Infosec.

With this in mind, Kanguru Solutions, a manufacturer of secure portable devices, has developed a customization program to help tailor their encrypted flash drives to an organization’s needs; from individuals and small business to enterprise and government entities.

In addition to 256-bit AES hardware encryption and onboard anti-virus, some of the customizable options offered by Kanguru include:

Unique Electronic Identifiers - Burned into the flash chip, this allows an organization to track device usage using a DLP or endpoint security solution.  Pair a drive to a user for tracking usage and creating whitelist or blacklist authorizations.

Custom Engraving – Engrave your organization’s flash drives with a company logo or text to help visually identify authorized devices.

Custom Colored Flash Drives – Black, Red, Blue, Silver, or Green.  Pick a standardized color for an organization or color coordinate devices by department to help identify security classifications.

Auto Launched Applications – Customers can provide Kanguru with an auto launch application and have it embedded into a read only portion of the drive during manufacturing.

Remote Management – Kanguru also offers a remote management application called KRMC (Kanguru Remote Management Console) for securing flash drives in the field.  Administrators can remotely disable or delete lost/stolen devices, track IP usage, enforce password strength and more.

The Kanguru program is a cost effective, à la carte setup, designed to help fit a variety of budgets and security needs.  Though not all-encompassing, it certainly is a step in the right direction to help Infosec professionals obtain additional security in the flash drive realm. 

We even offer evaluation units to organizations wishing to test their devices before committing to a purchase.
