We’re committed to helping customers maintain a secure network environment, particularly as it relates to the use of multifunction products (MFPs) – those that print, copy, fax and scan. Since all MFPs, regardless of vendor, contain hard drives and software, they require security precautions associated with other network peripherals. We introduced the industry’s first office MFP in 1995 and continue to be a leader in the development of security features for these systems.
We have earned the internationally recognized ISO 15408 Common Criteria certification for more than 50 of our office MFPs. This gives Xerox one of the industry’s broadest arrays of printers and copiers certified to meet our customers’ strictest security requirements. Our policy and practice is to have an entire multifunction system evaluated – not just individual features or a security kit.
Although we test extensively for security vulnerabilities in our software before we bring a product to market, we recognize that someone with intent and the requisite knowledge can, at times, find a way around security protections. We encourage people to notify us of any network security concerns, and we move immediately to provide a solution. We develop software patches for vulnerabilities and post them at www.xerox.com/security. In addition, we quickly update our manufacturing process to integrate the security fix.
