Konica Minolta MFPs exceed standards for cybersecurity compliance

Konica Minolta MFPs exceed standards for cybersecurity compliance

July 28, 2021

Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. announced results from penetration testing on its bizhub i-series multifunction printers, conducted to ensure the product line is compliant with the highest data privacy and endpoint security standards.

The bizhub i-series features multiple next-generation technologies, including solid-state storage, a new code base, firmware and integrated cloud services. Konica Minolta said that no vulnerabilities were found during recent tests performed on the devices by NTT DATA, an internationally respected IT services provider, and the Security division of NTT Ltd.

Network-connected devices offer end users great opportunities for collaboration and ease of use. Unfortunately, those same endpoint devices are attractive targets for hackers. By exploiting a security vulnerability in a connected device, a skilled hacker can expose an entire network to data theft, business disruption and financial turmoil.

Konica Minolta puts their products through rigorous internal cybersecurity tests to protect their systems and ensure they meet PCI, HIPAA, FERPA and GDPR compliance requirements. But to further assure customers that the printers exceed industry standards for cybersecurity compliance, Konica Minolta invested in an extra layer of threat protection, penetration tests provided by NTT DATA and the Security division of NTT Ltd.

Konica Minolta provided a line of its multifunction printers and their source code to NTT DATA for penetration testing. After spending approximately 80 hours trying to hack into the devices, NTT DATA engineers did not find any major security vulnerabilities. These results fortify Konica Minolta’s reputation for offering secure products and helps drive the product line’s success.

“More and more frequently, our clients are asking us for penetration tests of our products, but I don’t know of a competitor that has contracted a Fortune 500 company with the penetration testing capabilities that NTT DATA has,” said Chris Bilello, Vice President, Solutions and Vertical Market Business Development, Konica Minolta. “In an environment where customers are increasingly and rightfully concerned with security, NTT DATA’s extra testing can provide an added sense of confidence.”
