    Konica Minolta helps MFP customers boost their cybersecurity with layered solutions.
    Konica Minolta, a leading provider of bizhub MFPs (multifunction printers) and other print devices, has announced its layered security approach for its customers to help them fend off the growing cybercrime threats that can harm their operations, reputations, and finances. The company suggests its customers to supplement the already strong security features of its products with additional security solutions, customized to their specific needs and industry standards.

    Cybersecurity is a vital issue for businesses of all sizes, especially in sectors such as healthcare, education, financial and retail, where data privacy and compliance are crucial. According to recent studies*, the global average data breach cost in 2023 was $4.45M, a 15 percent increase from the previous three years. Furthermore, the emergence of hybrid workforces and the diversity of devices connected to the internet and business networks have exposed users and customers to more malware and other attacks.

    Konica Minolta’s products undergo strict internal cybersecurity tests to ensure their security and compliance with regulations such as PCI, PIPEDA, FIPPA , GDPR and many more. However, the company acknowledges that new threats arise constantly, and that many customers may lack the expertise or resources to manage their machine security effectively. Therefore, Konica Minolta offers a variety of security solutions that can improve the protection of its customers’ data and devices, such as:

    bizhub SECURE family of entry-level services – These services offer enhanced password
    and data security protection as well as advanced encryption for data in transit and at rest in the MFP.

    Users can only access the MFP with a password that is locked and stored securely. bizhub SECURE Platinum – This service provides additional security features, such as IP filtering, certificate management, and automatic security updates, to the bizhub SECURE services. bizhub SECURE Notifier app – This app informs users of the security status of their MFP and warns them of any potential risks or issues. Bitdefender Antivirus – This software performs real-time scanning and protection against viruses, ransomware, and other malware on the MFP. Dispatcher Phoenix – This software enables secure document workflows, such as encryption, redaction, watermarking, and digital signatures, on the MFP. bizhub Connector for Microsoft 365 – This app allows users to securely access and print documents from their Microsoft 365 accounts on the MFP. By following Konica Minolta’s layered security approach and solutions, customers can lower the risk of data breaches, adhere to industry standards and regulations, and ensure the continuity and productivity of their businesses.
