Kanguru and Belhara Launch Powerful, Secure Remote Desktop Device
Kanguru Solutions and Belhara Security Systems, Inc., have launched a powerful, new device that will assist organizations with lightning-fast remote access to their corporate desktop, securing against the accelerating rise of cyberattacks. The Kanguru RocIT™ Defender 2000™ FinanceSafe™ answers the need for more robust security without sacrificing the convenience of conducting off-site business in an efficient and easy to use manner.
“This device aims a powerful solution directly to the needs of enterprise businesses utilizing remote desktop,” says Don Brown, President of Kanguru. “It is also an extremely useful solution for those that wish to bank and conduct business remotely in a completely secured environment.”
The FinanceSafe™ drive offers the true portability, security and feasibility desired by enterprise. Powered by Belhara Security Systems Inc, it is a self-contained, hardened operating system on a hardware-encrypted, secure Kanguru Defender 2000 USB flash drive. Off-site business users simply plug the drive into any PC, anywhere in the world, and turn on the computer. The drive isolates its operating system from the host computer, allowing corporate users to safely work in their secure corporate environment, remotely. By bypassing the host PC's operating system, an isolated barrier is created from any malware, spyware or viruses that could have infected the host system.
“We are excited to be working with Kanguru to bring the power and performance of this revolutionary secure hosted desktop solution to the marketplace,” said Belhara President and CEO Tilo Kunz. “We believe that a large number of organizations will benefit from the increased security and flexibility offered by this solution to meet their business continuity and disaster recovery requirements, to support their remote workers, and to reduce their information technology operating costs.”
The secure connectivity to enterprise VDI is utilized through a VMware-viewer application. This is a perfect solution for companies who do not want to issue or manage expensive laptops for their remote users, but still require remote business continuity, data security, and disaster recovery compliance. The VMware-Viewer-Client provides an encrypted connection using PCoIP to the corporate VDI without the need to set up a VPN and enforces Data Loss Prevention policies as users aren't allowed to print or save files on the local machine, enabling companies to meet and comply with many regulatory requirements.
