Xerox, McAfee and Cisco®: The Cybersecurity Collaborative Effect

Time is everything in cybersecurity. The best responses neutralize threats at their source the moment they occur. By augmenting our security technologies with the market-leading McAfee® DXL and Cisco® pxGrid platforms, Xerox® multifunction printers (MFPs)* help you do just that.

Lets get to it.


Scenario 1: No Threats Detected

  1. McAfee® Embedded Control protects Xerox MFPs* with whitelisting technology.

  2. Authorized users can use Xerox® MFPs* to work on approved tasks.

  3. Files and software comply with security policies.

Scenario 2: An Automated Response to Threats


Reallocate security resources where they’re needed most.

  • McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) and Cisco® Identity Services Engine (ISE) maintain continuous contact over the McAfee® DXL/Cisco® pxGrid framework.

  • As a result, the Cisco® Policy Database recognizes Xerox® printers are protected by McAfee and designates them as trusted endpoints.

  • This allows security professionals to focus their resources on less secure endpoints.

Required Setup

The following enablers are required for an automated response to cyberthreats:

  • Xerox® MFP* that has McAfee® Agent & Embedded Control

  • McAfee® DXL Brokers configured to bridge to Cisco® pxGrid

  • Bidirectional communication between fabrics

    • Session notifications and ISE-related services

    • Adaptive Network Control (ANC) messages and related notifications

    • New Automatic Response within ePO that invokes ANC/EPS services (quarantine, etc.)

  • pxGrid messages and services available to OpenDXL clients

  • OpenDXL Cisco® pxGrid Python Client
