"Our Kanguru Defender series of secure, hardware encrypted USB drives is immune to a potential attack like 'BadUSB' because of the digitally signed secure firmware," said Nate Cote, Kanguru EVP, in a press statement. "With the release of the new Kanguru FlashTrust, we now offer this same level of firmware protection to the multi-billion dollar market segment of unencrypted USB device users."

 

As many users and business workers rely on flash drives, there has been an increase in secure flash drives - IronKey, Kingston secure USB flash drives, Imation Defender, Kanguru, and the Apricorn Aegis secure key, among others. There is a good selection of secure products that can be chosen, using various security protocols to keep data safe.
