Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., announced its strategic collaboration with Symphion, Inc., a security configuration management software and services company, with the addition of Symphion’s Printer Fleet Cybersecurity as a Service to its broad portfolio of security solutions.
The company explained that this partnership marks a significant commitment to providing Canon Solutions America customers with a truly comprehensive solution that supports whole print fleets, including all makes, models and ages.
Business leaders are recognising the dangerous gap in their cybersecurity presented by Internet of Things (IoT) devices, including their printers, and the potential extreme financial consequences of inaction. Printers have significant on-board features for security with as many as 300 configurable security settings, but these settings are often not used on networks because of cost and technical limitations, leaving these vulnerable devices completely unprotected, quite literally the biggest network security threat of recent years.
Symphion’s Printer Fleet Cybersecurity as a Service offers comprehensive print fleet cyber hardening solutions to address this gap and cyber harden all print devices in large print fleets, as a turnkey service, without requiring any customer employees or contractors.
“We’re proud to add industry leader Canon Solutions America as a Symphion partner. With Symphion, they’re clearly taking a leadership position by addressing the global cybersecurity gap that customers face,” stated Jim LaRoe, Chief Executive Officer, Symphion, Inc.
“We are excited to build on the success of our Canon Solutions America 5 Pillars of Security offerings with the addition of Symphion’s Printer Fleet Cybersecurity as a Service solution to our portfolio,” said Peter P. Kowalczuk, President, Canon Solutions America. “We continue to develop relationships like this to support our commitment to providing best-in-class cybersecurity services to help our customers keep their proprietary data safe. We look forward to collaborating with Symphion on emerging, innovative security solutions.”
