Kyocera passes Keypoint Intelligence’s security validation test programme

The volume and complexity of security threats facing today’s organisations are increasing daily and to ensure businesses are protecting themselves against these threats the need for robust data protection has never been greater. This is according to Kyocera Document Solutions.

According to a study from Quocirca, just 26% of IT Decision Makers say they are completely confident in the security of their print infrastructure, with 68% reporting data losses due to unsecured printing practices. This is leading to an average cost of a data loss of £632K, increasing concerns around the risks of printing, and declining confidence in the ability to protect the print infrastructure against security breaches.

Andrew Smith, Group Chief Information & Strategy Officer (CIO, CSO) at Kyocera Document Solutions said: “We are proud that ten A3 MFP Kyocera devices in the TASKalfa 3554ci series have passed the Keypoint Intelligence Security Validation test program. With the volume and complexity of cybersecurity increasing by the day, data protection is now at the top-of-mind for business leaders.

“Our devices operate at the highest of standards, having strict access with only authorised parties given entry ratification. Data encryption across devices keeps all confidential data and network information secure with our Automatic K-Level security installation eliminating risks of human error.”

The TASKalfa 3554ci series firmware provides the ability to enable an advanced level of security installed as part of the initial configuration to reduce human error or any security threat. Having a quick security set-up, this range of devices provides outstanding data protection from day one.

To further help organisations best prepare for cyber security threats, Kyocera has enhanced its managed cyber security solution and released M-EDR, which builds on the standard capabilities of EDR while leveraging advanced analytics, providing real-time visibility into the health of all endpoints. This service will provide a suite of technology to maximise protection in an ever-changing IT landscape, reducing the risk of security breaches.

Smith concluded: Organisation’s are facing a new wave of cybersecurity threats, and there is no room for complacency. Kyocera will continue to innovate to give our customers’ data the best possible protection. Receiving such recognition from Keypoint Intelligence is extremely pleasing, and it tells us we are doing a lot of things very well with our TASKalfa devices.”
