Marketing Information

The Kanguru Defender® Opal SED30™ is a hardware-based self-encrypting drive that provides full disk data security at rest, keeping your operating system locked and protected using state-of-the-art, self-contained implementation, with none of the performance bottlenecks of a software based encryption platform. The Kanguru Opal SED30™ provides exceptional data security benefits and performance for corporations, industries, businesses and professionals.

  • Full Drive Encryption with Pre-Boot Authentication
  • Comprehensive Dashboard for User-Friendly Experience
  • Sensitive Cryptographic Keys are Never Exported from the Hardware Controller, Unlike Software Encryption Implementations
  • Secure Firmware with Digital Signature

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

AES 256-Bit Hardware Encryption

AES 256-bit hardware encryption is the backbone of the Kanguru Defender Opal SED30's security, providing top tier performance unmatched by software encryption solutions. The "Always On" benefits of AES 256-Bit hardware encryption are significant, providing the most widely-adopted and recognized encryption strategy to protect data on the market today. AES is a widely recognized and adapted cryptographic module used in the U.S., Canada and worldwide, ensuring that the encryption algorithm used by the Opal SED30 adheres to the specified standards and provides a level of security deemed appropriate for protecting sensitive data. Along with password matching and security functions contained in the cryptographic chip, this self-encrypting drive is a great defense against data theft, ensuring your data is secure.

Benefits of Hardware Encryption Over Software Encryption

Sensitive cryptographic keys are never exported from the hardware controller, unlike software encryption implementations that are used like a "vault" to protect operating systems installed on drives. The Kanguru Defender Opal SED30 is not vulnerable to the same key extraction techniques that have been proven to be fairly easy to replicate as attack schemes against software encryption.

TAA Compliant

The Kanguru Defender Opal SED30 Self-Encrypting SSD is TAA Compliant, which is ideal for government purchases, Government Procurement Contracts and meeting certain compliance regulations.

Internal PCIe M.2, 2280 NVMe

The Kanguru Opal SED30 uses an internal PCIe M.2, 2280 NVMe chip offering exceptional performance and speed, with Sequential Read up to 7200MB/s and Sequential Write up to 6500MB/s.

Kanguru Opal Commander™

Using the Kanguru Opal Commander software suite, confidently manage and review all aspects of the hardware-encrypted Kanguru Defender SED30 module. Hardware encryption consistently outperforms software encryption since encryption/decryption processing is done in the hardware crypto-controller. Leave the performance bottlenecks and vulnerabilities behind and increase the confidence level that all data is protected.

Workforce Provisioning Tool

In addition, Kanguru's provisioning tools allow administrators to configure enforceable security policies for deployment to a global user workforce, which end users must adhere to. Built on over 20 years of hardware security experience in the government certification world, users can be assured Kanguru is up to the task of keeping their organization's data assets safe.
