The Defender LifePlanner uses the company’s military grade encryption technology trusted by organizations WW to provide an affordable, easy-to-use solution for individuals looking for a way to store, organize and secure all of their personal information. The secure device is for families to be able to share access with other family members, care givers, elder care, or estate planners with a choice of full access or limited access if so desired.

For nearly 30 years Kanguru’s main focus has been addressing high-security market sectors,” states Nate Cote, EVP. “We are very proud to provide this new patented product designed for busy, goal-oriented, hard-working people and their families with a high-end security solution for all of their personal data.”

He continues:“There is a need in the market for everyday users to be able to securely and easily manage their most sensitive personal information, while not being exposed to the risk of keeping all of the information in a public cloud environment. The LifePlanner product set combines trusted hardware encryption technology with an easy-to-use interface where your sensitive info is stored locally – not in the cloud. It is truly the best of both worlds and long overdue.”

The Defender LifePlanner is a patented technology designed by the company as an all-in-one security solution for personal data. It comes pre-loaded onto firm’s Bio-Elite30 hardware encrypted, fingerprint access USB device. This handheld encrypted USB device easily fits in a pocket or purse, and contains multi-level security using an onboard Command Console GUI interface supporting several applications including the LifePlanner, an onboard Firefox browser, integrated anti-virus/anti-malware by Bitdefender and automated backup and restore features.

The drive is encrypted with FIPS 197 certified, AES 256-bit hardware encryption. Since it is a completely local USB device with military grade hardware encryption, there is no worry of compromise from online threats from the Internet. There is also a 2nd layer of independent 256-AES encryption leveraging a unique encryption key behind the initial hardware encryption controller to further secure the sensitive contents of the LifePlanner data. FIPS 140-2 certified platforms will also be available in 4Q22.

Included with the drive is 3-years of onboard, real-time anti-malware by Bitdefender. Bitdefender has been a valued partner with the company for many years helping provide data protection.

Securing personal information is crucial as cyberattacks and identity theft continues to increase in both frequency and sophistication,” said Jose Lopez, VP, technology licensing and service providers, Bitdefender. “Today’s consumers must have easy access to powerful security technologies that helps stop breaches at the door and protect data at rest. We are pleased to have a long-standing partnership with Kanguru whose vision to improve cybersecurity for all users aligns with ours.”
