The Kanguru Defender SED300 Secure SSDs, powered by Cigent, have advanced security capabilities built into the firmware to ensure only authorized users and processes have access to data. The company’s drives are AES 256 SED, FIPS 140-2 Level 2 validated, come in internal PCIe M.2 2280 NVMe and external USB storage, and are available in 512GB, 1, and 2TB capacities.

Secure SSDs, powered by Cigent, originally developed for U.S. government and military use, are the world’s first commercially available cyber-secure SSDs.

Secure SSD firmware implements key additional capabilities:

  • Erasure verification
  • Malicious data access logs
  • Keep alive ‘heartbeat’ software service to thwart circumvention attempts such as disabling protection services

Kanguru Secure SSDs are Cigent Ready, enabling security storage level features to be invoked and managed with the Kanguru Data Defense software.

Data Defense enables the firmware features and also provides:

  • Full drive encryption with pre-boot authentication
  • Automated FIPS-mode configuration
  • Secure Vaults, protected partitions that are invisible until unlocked
  • Zero Trust File Access to ensure only trusted users and processes have access to protected files

The Kanguru Defender SED family of encrypted solid state drives is a true breakthrough that challenges conventional thinking about data security,” said Nate Cote, EVP, Kanguru. “We’re thrilled to combine Cigent and Kanguru’s technology offerings to provide our customers with revolutionary data defense.”

Kanguru Defender SED’s offer secure storage on military-grade hardware encrypted devices, protecting vs. data breaches, brute-force attacks and more.

Today’s cyber threats are growing increasingly sophisticated and protecting sensitive data is imperative,” said Tom Ricoy, CRO, Cigent. “The Cigent Ready Secure SSD program ensures Kanguru drives are protected from endpoint attacks.”
