With organizations honing in on IT security and compliance efforts with data privacy regulations, Canon U.S.A., a Double Award Winner in the Annual ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program for two consecutive years, has debuted its third generation imageRUNNER ADVANCE 3rd edition platform.
Building upon the success and reliability of its predecessors, the new lineup features Security Information Event Management (SIEM) integration and other cybersecurity feature enhancements that allow for efficient activity monitoring and threat detection that extend beyond traditional MFP security features designed to help prevent unauthorized access to organizational assets.
The solutions expand Canon’s existing focus on reliability and workflow efficiency.

“Enterprises are in a transformative time, and the harsh reality is that with such disruptive innovation can come hacks, data attacks, and other security vulnerabilities that pose risk to an organization’s confidential information,” explained Shinichi Yoshida, executive vice president and general manager, Canon U.S.A., Inc.
“We integrated new security features at the design level of the new imageRUNNER ADVANCE models to help equip our customers with a comprehensive enterprise solution that can help improve business efficiency.”
This is the first line of MFPs from Canon to incorporate SIEM integration which collect and analyze machine data from across an organization’s IT environment to provide organizations with real-time indicators of potential security violations.
Many organizations currently relying on SIEM systems are either manually importing data from their printers into SIEM, or not including their printers in SIEM monitoring at all.
The new imageRUNNER ADVANCE multifunction print solutions make it possible to easily include printers in a company’s existing comprehensive security monitoring.
Additional security features include Verify System at Startup, a process of utilizing a Root of Trust (RoT) to help protect the device boot code, firmware, and applications from unauthorized modification, and automatic security certificate updates to help reduce the burden on IT teams.

In the coming months, Canon plans to offer further development in the information security market landscape by continuing to enhance its product integration in areas such as runtime detection to help further protect against intrusion.
With business strategies favoring higher levels of productivity, Canon builds on its workflow efficiency with this launch.
The new lineup includes improved OCR accuracy for better data records, and a seamless and intuitive user experience.

The new home screen can help employees stay organized and the timeline feature can easily recall previous jobs by user.
Additionally, Canon is introducing enhancements to cloud-based solutions to help enable flexibility and workflow efficiency.
To help users easily access scan profiles, print from available cloud destinations at their imageRUNNER ADVANCE device, and easily track usage by specific departments, updates to the optional uniFLOW Online solution include Print from Cloud, Scan Template Library, and Central Department Management and Reporting, respectively.
“It is our intention that continuous development of the imageRUNNER ADVANCE portfolio through ongoing product updates, new features through our Unified Firmware Platform and tight collaboration with solutions like uniFLOW Online can help secure and improve customer document workflows now, and into the Office of the Future,” added Yoshida.
