For the purpose of assisting the companies in taking appropriate steps in the process of managing and protecting the important information on the printers and multifunction devices, Canon USA, Inc., a leading digital imaging solutions has announced that, the company has published a white paper that is covering the cyber-security guidelines for the companies and their systems that mainly manage important information.
The Canon multifunctional printer has been covered by the whitepaper, which will be supporting each control within both the standards of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and is also providing specific guidance for the configuration of the devices in the support of the NIST controls.
The whitepaper, which has been created by Canon and is verified by Trelix can possibly serve as a guide to the security administrators of the organizations, who are now responsible for the maintenance and configuration of Canon devices of imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX.
It is covering the cyber-security guidelines for the SP 800-171 for NIST, which has been required for the organizations that can possibly conduct the business with the government bodies, and the white paper is also including the information on NIST SP 800-172, which has been defining the Advanced Persistent Threat, which is a counter measure for helping the companies in taking the appropriate steps so that, they can possibly protect the important information.
Among all the topics, the new white paper are addressing all the access control, which is detailing how to verify and control the connection and also using the external systems as it has been limiting the use and portable storage devices on the external systems.
