Canon UK has refreshed its range of imageRUNNER and imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX multifunction and single function devices with improvements such as enhanced security features, lower energy consumption and reduced polystyrene waste in packaging. The imageRUNNER and imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX printers also include collaboration tools for hybrid working.
The range now has a reduction of Typical Electricity Consumption (TEC) values of up to 16% compared to previous models. Devices and parts have also been designed to last longer, helping customers maximise uptime, while reducing service visits and impact on the environment. Additionally, the polystyrene packaging previously used has been reduced and replaced with recyclable cardboard to limit single-use waste and helping partners to offer a more sustainable option to their customers.
The updated imageRUNNER and imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX printers also offer customers device, data and network protection for security at every stage of the document lifecycle. The latest security firmware delivers end-to-end protection and both include encrypted file sharing, featuring TLS1.3, WPA3 & SMB 3.1.1 support. The imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX products are also armed with FIPS 140-3 for certified encryption performance.
All devices in the updated portfolio also include two-factor authentication, in addition to incorporating stricter password rules for added protection. To ensure protection from malicious cyber-attacks, businesses can gain visibility thanks to secure status visualisation. The refreshed product ranges are also supported by a Security Settings Navigator utility, which allows users to apply optimum settings required for different network environments, without the need for a security specialist.
