Canon Security: Safeguarding Sensitive Data with Advanced MFP Solutions

July 11, 2024  |  NECS

Did you know that your multifunction printers (MFPs) can be vulnerable points for accessing valuable credentials, sensitive data, and proprietary information? Understanding these risks and leveraging advanced security features is essential to maintaining a secure print environment. Canon's imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX and imagePRESS Lite models offer robust security measures to support your organization's cybersecurity goals.

Vulnerabilities in MFPs: A Closer Look

Configuration Changes:
Multifunction printers process and route data to various destinations. If malicious actors alter configuration settings, sensitive information can be redirected to unauthorized recipients, leading to potential data breaches.

Disk and Media Storage:
The potential consequences of unauthorized access to this stored data, such as data breaches and exploitation, underscore the urgency of securing your MFPs.

BIOS and Firmware:
MFPs' firmware is a potential entry point for hackers. By compromising the firmware, they can access other applications, execute harmful code, or initiate denial-of-service attacks, often accompanied by ransom demands to regain system functionality.

Unattended Output Trays:
Unauthorized individuals can easily pick up documents left in MFP output trays. Promptly retrieving printed documents is essential to prevent the exposure of sensitive information.

Cloud/Wireless Printing:
Printing via wireless or cloud networks can pose security risks if these infrastructures are not correctly configured. Ensuring secure configurations is crucial, as vulnerabilities in these systems can expose sensitive information to interception and unauthorized access.

Canon's Security Features

Canon's imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX and imagePRESS Lite models are equipped with cutting-edge security features designed to mitigate these risks and support your cybersecurity framework:

Verify System at Startup:
This feature identifies tampering at each system startup and alerts administrators when a security threat is detected.

Unified Firmware Platform:
Allows regular firmware version upgrades, including additional functionality and security features, ensuring your MFPs stay up-to-date with the latest security measures.

Data Encryption:
Data is made complex to decrypt. The Trusted Platform Module 2.0 further encrypts and decrypts passwords, certificates, and encryption keys.

Security Policy Settings:
Administrators can monitor and streamline security settings from the Remote User Interface, ensuring comprehensive oversight and control.

Device Authentication:
Restricts certain features and functionalities to authorized individuals only, requiring user verification to gain device access.

Creating a print and document infrastructure that is both secure and adaptable to your team's evolving requirements is essential. With a Unified Firmware Platform that receives regular updates, imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX and imagePRESS Lite devices are designed to meet your current and future needs.
