Konica Minolta advises layered security solutions

January 19, 2024

Konica Minolta Business Solutions (Canada) Ltd. (Konica Minolta) announced its recommended layered security approach for customers who operate the company’s bizhub MFPs (multifunction printers) and other print devices.

Because new threats appear constantly, and smaller businesses do not often have expert IT help on staff, Konica Minolta is strongly advising customers who operate the company’s MFPs and other print devices to protect help protect themselves with additional layers of security solutions, all based on each customer’s and their industry’s needs.

“Security is particularly critical for customers operating in healthcare, education, financial and retail environments, where documents, payment details and data privacy must be protected by law or organizations risk severe penalties and other remediation costs. Konica Minolta already puts its products through rigorous internal cybersecurity tests to protect systems and make sure they meet regulations such as PCI, PIPEDA, FIPPA , GDPR and many more,” said Chris Bilello, Vice President, Business Solutions Development, Konica Minolta. “But with so many threat vectors in an increasingly digital world, and with the rise in cyberattacks worldwide, we’re urging our customers to consider additional layers of protection.”

IT departments at many organisations may not have the ability to ensure machine security across all devices, so automated security capabilities can significantly reduce risk – including potential security breaches that can happen inside an organization with unauthorised users at an MFP.

Konica Minolta addresses these risks with tools such as hard drive lock passwords, hard drive encryption, automatic deletion of temporary image data, and data overwrite of electronic documents on a timed basis. Konica Minolta’s layered security solutions include:

  • bizhub SECURE family of entry-level services – Includes enhanced password and data security protection as well as advanced encryption for data in transit and at rest in the MFP. Users are only able to access the MFP with a password that is locked and stored to protect access to documents.
  • bizhub SECURE Notifier – Allows an organisation to receive alerts in real time to protect their bizhub SECURE settings and offers a multitude of password safeguards. Embedded antivirus and malware protection checks for incoming, outgoing and data at rest and sends alerts for security issues.
  • Antivirus and malware protection powered by BitDefender – Enables the MFP to scan for viruses as data is received and before outbound transmission. Checks for incoming, outgoing and data at rest in the MFP that could contain malware, which can include viruses, Trojan horses, ransomware and spyware. BitDefender is a worldwide leader in cybersecurity, offering real-time device protection, 24/7.
  • Shield Guard – Takes protection to another level by providing anywhere, anytime access to make monitoring and managing the security of an entire print fleet faster and easier. A single dashboard delivers instant notifications and alerts to enable immediate action if security vulnerabilities are detected, ensuring industry compliance.
  • Dispatcher Paragon+ – Delivers enhanced security measures plus a consolidated view of an organisation’s entire print, copy, fax and scan operations to help boost productivity. This advanced document workflow solution provides secure pull print across an entire fleet of devices and single sign-on (SSO) multifactor authentication.
  • Dispatcher Phoenix – Securely captures, processes and distributes documents to help increase business productivity and efficiency, drive collaboration and reduce costs. This advanced, intelligent document workflow supports digital workflows with email or fax capture, streamlines print and scan activities and its centralized management interface requires little to no technical expertise.

“All these levels of protection are available now, and with the increase in sophisticated cybersecurity threats that organizations are facing, we hope customers will consider added security to make sure their operations are safeguarded,” added Bilello. “But Konica Minolta is a forward-thinking company, so we’re constantly updating and putting new measures in place to protect our customers and their customers – we’re not stopping here.”
