Canon Solutions America, a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., a leader in digital imaging solutions, Double Award Winner in the 2018 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, and multi-product competitor in the 2019 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program, hosted a special event at MetLife Stadium in New York on August 22nd as an extension of its Security Roadshow program.
Linking business leaders to subject matter experts in all facets of security, this event set out to provide insight into a comprehensive process – one that comprises strategies and technologies to help businesses develop a more proactive, in-depth approach to the many types of security risks they face.
Experts from Canon Solutions America and several of its vendor partners took attendees on a journey through real world demonstrations of Canon Solutions America’s Five Pillars of Security.
This layered security approach encompasses device security, print security, document security, information security, and cybersecurity, outlining a business model that can be easily and efficiently implemented.

“There is no simple solution to cybersecurity,” explained Rob Sloan, Research Director at The Wall Street Journal’s WSJ Pro.
“It takes the multi-dimensional approach that Canon Solutions America has set out in its 5 Pillars of Security and security professionals coming together as a community—as we have done today—to share ideas, knowledge, and experience.”
Security solutions from Canon Solutions America partners Barracuda, Vera, Agile Cybersecurity Solutions (ACS) and Therefore, a competitor in the 20019 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program nominated for Best Data Storage Security Solutions, were each showcased in a series of presentations.

A lively question-and-answer session followed, with speakers providing an open, interactive forum that allowed for a deeper dive into the topics of the day.
“It was great to meet with peers and learn more about what other businesses are facing,” added Adam Rabe, IT Support for Langan.
“I gained new insight into how to improve network security and ensure against threats. Thanks, Canon Solutions America, for bringing to light these opportunities.”
In addition to the engaging presentations and opportunities to interact face-to-face with security experts, attendees enjoyed a guided tour of MetLife Stadium and had the opportunity to meet Wayne Chrebet, former wide receiver who played 11 seasons for the New York Jets.
With a long career avoiding, outmaneuvering, or simply outrunning obstacles, Chrebet was a perfect fit to show how being aware of potential threats in your environment, and employing nimble strategies along with teamwork, will help you come out a winner.
Further illustrating the company’s commitment to security, Canon U.S.A., Inc., Canon Solutions America’s parent company, recently announced a new collaboration with McAfee, a device-to-cloud cybersecurity company that provides security solutions for cloud, endpoint and antivirus.
The companies are joining forces to provide enhanced embedded protection against malware execution and tampering of firmware and applications for a sometimes-overlooked endpoint, multifunction printers (MFPs).
Through the partnership, Canon customers will now receive McAfee® Embedded Control as an additional standard security feature1 on third generation imageRUNNER ADVANCE 3rd edition MFPs once enabled.

“Security is a serious concern in today’s connected world, and it affects us all,” said Peter Kowalczuk, President of Canon Solutions America.
“We at Canon Solutions America are committed to working closely with our customers to help them protect their businesses, their intellectual property, and the data of their employees and customers.”
“Technology advances quickly and cyberattacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated. We are here to help guide organizations through these challenges.”
