Canon Photocopiers & Multifunction Printers Now Even More Secure

CANON PARTNERS WITH McAfee® to help protect your office device from unknown threats.

Our partners Canon are focused on addressing the evolving security risks associated with today’s office printers. PrintSync’s range of Canon photocopiers including the imageRUNNER ADVANCE Multifunction Devices have progressed to offer wide-ranging scan and send capabilities, cloud-based functions, and network integration. With confidential data moving from desktops to mobile devices to multifunction devices, Canon understands the need to take extra measures to help provide its customers with a secure experience.

With printer systems being connected to a company network, they become a potential target for hackers attempting to gain access to the network and company data. With this in mind, Canon conducted research and defined detailed requirements with the goal of implementing a secure solution against this threat.

With McAfee® as its security partner, Customers feel more confident that the Canon photocopiers * they use every day are protected against malicious threats. This new functionality is just the latest addition to the extensive set of security features incorporated into the range of imageRUNNER ADVANCE MFDs. This helps to secure the device and communications as well as provide the capability to efficiently manage security policies and monitor activity.
