If you have a Xerox AltaLink or are considering one I want to bring to your attention a security certification that was received by the Xerox AltaLink devices. Please read this announcement for the details and follow the links for further information.
Xerox® AltaLink® Devices Achieve Common Criteria Certification for Security
Achieving Common Criteria Certification is not so common. That’s why we’re especially proud to receive the industry’s most stringent information security standard certification from National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP).
In fact, our AltaLink multifunction printers (MFPs) are the first to be certified by NIAP under rigorous new testing standards—the latest Common Criteria security protection for hardcopy devices. Here are a few things to know about this protection profile:
- It intends to protect the information processed by an MFP from security threats.
- It includes stringent new requirements for cryptography, authentication and secure protocols.
- Testing is conducted by independent labs, resulting in the most up-to-date and stringent security endorsement for SMBs, large enterprises and governments.
Xerox® AltaLink® High-Volume MFPs
NIAP and Common Criteria Certification give our customers – particularly federal government agencies—assurance that our new AltaLink devices have world-class security protection built-in, and that their critical information is safe.
Xerox®ConnectKey® Technology turns AltaLink MFPs into smart, connected workplace assistants that reflect the evolving needs of today’s businesses. This includes simple, secure, on-the-go capabilities, cloud connectivity, and mobile access to productivity-boosting features and apps.
