Kyocera Releases SecureAudit for Copier/MFP Security

Earlier this month, KYOCERA Document Solutions U.K. released a new HyPAS business application, KYOCERA SecureAudit, which enables organizations to check the security status of their Kyocera HyPAS-enabled  copier/MFPs.

SecureAudit works by scanning each copier/MFP’s status against a range of security-benchmarked criteria, providing managers with “instant visibility” into each setting in the form of a diagnostic report. Checked criteria include open ports, protocols, default administrative passwords, authenticated user accounts, job boxes, installed apps, USB status, and more.

Eddie Ginja, head of innovation at Kyocera commented: “Just like other IoT devices, our printers are now connected to the Internet, as well as corporate networks, creating a massively expanded threat surface. Without adequate protection, cyber-attacks can easily gain access to unencrypted and other (personal) data available across entire IT networks. It’s like leaving your back door wide open to burglars.”

According to market-research firm  Quocirca,  of the millions of business printers in the world, only 2 percent are secure.

Features and specifications include:

  • Print full diagnostic report: customize what settings you want to be reported on, and have a full breakdown printed or saved to USB within moments of running the application.
  • Step-by-step screens are said to make it easy for users to produce in-depth reports with minimal training needed.
  • Bby identifying where vulnerabilities may exist, this compliments a preventative security strategy looking to find and fix possible breach points before they happen.
  • KYOCERA SecureAudit will support data protection policies and assist GDPR compliance.

Kyocera SecureAudit will be offered within Kyocera’s suite of application software, powered by HyPAS.
