• Canon partners with cyber-security experts McAfee

        • Canon has teamed up with McAfee to bring its customers protection against security threats happening now and in the future.

          Canon’s imageRUNNER ADVANCE devices are secure by design but with McAfee, customers can ensure they have the very best in print security. As threats evolve, so too does the McAfee Embedded Control Software, meaning your business will always be protected.

          Adam Poole, B2B Marketing & Sales Excellence Director at Canon UK said, “the office of the future is evolving and so are our products. We understand that your device isn’t just a printer anymore, but a connected hub supporting numerous cloud applications to streamline your workflows and enhance productivity. Our partnership with McAfee gives you the most up-to-date security to help protect your connected devices against the threats that we can predict today as well as the unknown threats of tomorrow.”

          Canon’s regular firmware upgrades provide the latest security innovation. Customers will now get the latest features and functionality, including McAfee Embedded Control Software which will become available in our upcoming version 3.9 firmware update.

          Adam said, “we want to give our customers the best value for their IT investment. As the security landscape advances, it’s easy for device protection to become out of date. With each firmware update, our customers will be given the latest innovations and the best security solutions available until end of life.”

          Canon will work closely with McAfee to offer a constantly evolving whitelist of authorised applications. Its Unified Firmware Platform (UFP) also makes management a breeze with the guarantee that the same quality of security and user experience is rolled out across every imageRUNNER ADVANCE device.

          Brent Smith, Director of OEM Sales, McAfee added, “as the number of connected devices in an organisation grows, so do the risks from malware and attacks. McAfee Embedded Control ensures the integrity of systems by only allowing authorised access to devices and blocking unauthorised executables. In today’s modern-day threat landscape, we consider this alignment with Canon to be a win and one that can help provide companies with the necessary assurance that their confidential business data will remain protected, even as office document workflows evolve.”
