Canon Inc. has been recognised as a leader in the IDC MarketScape for Print and Document Security Solutions Worldwide.
The company announced that it has been recognised as a leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Security Solutions and Services Hardcopy 2019 Vendor Assessment. In the assessment, the IDC MarketScape recognised Canon for its commitment to preparing customers for the future of work and helping users protect their print and document infrastructure through impressive device-level security features and a broad array of solutions and services.
“Security is a core part of Canon’s integrated MFP solutions,” said Robert Palmer, Research Vice President, IDC Imaging, Printing, and Document Solutions Group. “Combined with its expertise in workflow, process optimisation, and information management, Canon can assist businesses in their efforts to reduce security risks by providing devices and solutions that can help users with protecting and hardening assets, simplifying processes, minimising touch points, and strengthening protection for business-critical information.”
Canon’s robust security efforts align well with the needs of organisations as demonstrated by the findings from its inaugural Office of the Future survey, conducted by IDC. Survey respondents indicated that the growing types, channels and volume of content shared in the workplace requires stronger internal security and compliance procedures, and ranked digital security solutions (57%) as the most pressing technology investment for their respective organisations. This underscores the security implications of digital transformation and emerging technologies on today’s enterprise.
“As cyber threats grow in frequency and sophistication, we understand that information security is an important part of our business in order to help our customers – offering them security features and options where outstanding technology and bright minds in cybersecurity can come together to help protect the workplace against threats and preparedness for the office of the future,” said Shinichi Yoshida, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Canon U.S.A. Inc. “Canon is proud to be recognised as a security leader by the IDC MarketScape, as it reflects our dedication to developing high-quality, customer-first solutions that strengthen workflow and information management. We look forward to continue showcasing our offerings in this area through ongoing innovation and strategic third-party partnerships.”
