Kanguru Introduces Endpoint Protector to Assist Organizations in Protecting Data & Infrastructure

Kanguru is pleased to provide organizations with a powerful new cloud-based management service (including a 10-day free no obligation trial), to monitor all types of peripherals, enforce security policies and supervise devices within their organization. Kanguru Endpoint Protector provides tremendous administrative control for IT Administrators to protect sensitive data and its infrastructure. Managers can use this powerful cloud-based service to monitor, report, and enforce security policies for all USB plug-in devices, peripherals, storage devices, web content, communications, mobile devices and even screen captures - all from one convenient cloud-based console.

 

 

 

With the perplexity of security issues brought on by personal devices carried in by staff, USB peripherals, mobile devices and global access to the internet, it’s easy for organizations with sensitive information to lose track of data that could lead to a harmful data breach, or become victim of a malware attack. Kanguru Endpoint Protector provides a powerful tool to enforce secure policies, monitor the network, and report violations.

 

"Organizations will love the convenience of this powerful cloud-based security interface," says Don Brown, President and CEO of Kanguru. "Today’s complex BYOD environment makes it a necessity."

 

Kanguru Endpoint Protector offers highly granular, yet easy-to-deploy options to protect corporate IP and the organization’s data infrastructure from being compromised. Endpoint Security can protect from inherent dangers of physically-connected hardware peripherals like computers, printers, webcams, USB storage drives, and even DVD/Blu-ray devices. Endpoint Protection also enables administrators to supervise and protect from insider threats from mobile devices, uploads through web browsers, email attachments, pasteboard copies or even screen capture.

 

Kanguru Endpoint Protector is available in 3 separate modules, each offering their own comprehensive security options, and can be purchased and used separately or together to form a robust security solution:

 

 

Device Control provides the management of USB and other portable data storage devices to enforce strong security policies and protect the health of the network.

 

Content Aware Protection ensures sensitive data does not leave the network whether copied on devices, clipboard or through applications, online services or even screen captures.

 

Mobile Device Management provides full control and detailed monitoring of mobile devices and helps to ensure that data is safe at any time or place, while still allowing personal devices to be used within the organization.

 

Organizations who would like to test Kanguru Endpoint Protector for themselves to see how it works are invited to Try a FREE no commitment 10-day trial with no obligation, no credit card needed. Visit endpoint.kanguru.com and click “Sign Up” for the free trial.

Go big. Go Kanguru.

Now, more than ever, you want to ensure that your data is protected and secure against any form of hacking and theft. There’s far too much piracy these days. And if you work at any capacity in a healthcare organization, data security solutions are vital to protecting every man and woman’s indisputable right to privacy.

 

Medical fields in particular are targets for hackers and cyber thieves of all kinds. They know that the health care industry’s data security is vulnerable. The ill, the infirmed and the medical professionals looking after them have much more to worry about than making sure someone isn’t trying to take advantage of someone who is severely sick or injured. Therefore, it is absolutely essential that data security management for healthcare organizations is HIPAA compliant. That’s why you want a global leader in high quality, secure, encrypted hardware. You want Kanguru. We produce encrypted hard drives, solid state drives, USB drives (single, or available for purchase in bulk), duplication equipment, and more; whatever your security and encryption needs may be, all exceeding government standards with a range of flexibility to fit any budget.

 

A Global Leader in Data Security

 

With the state of things today, you can’t afford to offer subpar quality of service to your patients. You have their confidence to take into account. The same goes for medical billing and medical insurance agencies, whose clients also rely on total protection of their privacy and financial information. Thanks to the institution of government mandates and regulations to protect the interests of such individuals, data security management and encrypted hardware are an essential part of doing business, freeing you to place all of your focus on your patients. Kanguru products will get you where you need to be to keep your data safe, and ensure none of your tech is sullied by unwanted viruses or hacker interference. With protections like AES 256 hardware encryption, on-board anti-virus protection, brute force protection, and secure firmware, Along with high-end certifications like FIPS 140-2, Common Criteria, and TAA Compliance, our products go above and beyond security quality standards under HIPAA federal regulations. You can rest assured that we've got you covered.

 

Beyond defending from the outside, you also need to look at protecting from the inside, and Kanguru helps you do that. Several medical organizations have suddenly been alarmed with the wave of panic, distrust, and embarrassment associated with the loss of a single, unencrypted flash drive containing private patient data by a careless staff member. Regulations slap organizations with heavy fines and the organization spends often millions of dollars to recover. Don’t let it happen to you. Kanguru Remote Management and password-protected flash drives make protecting data as easy and worry free.

 

You want your patients and clients both to know that data storage and confidentiality are never an issue when they do business with you, and that it never will be. It’s what sets Kanguru apart from other data security companies. Respect is a very important asset for any organization that handles private data, but if an organization can not demonstrate that it upholds patient data security and privacy seriously, it could be difficult to recover from such a reputation. Showing clients and patients that you use the very best data security solutions and data storage devices on the market demonstrates that you care about them and their private data. Using Kanguru secure USB drives and remote management helps build and maintain a positive, trustworthy relationship with your patients and colleagues. Use the best because they deserve the best, and the best is built to last. Use Kanguru.
