Canon U.S.A., Inc. Earns Two ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards

Many businesses still need to implement technology that considers digital security. Canon U.S.A., Inc., a global leader in digital imaging solutions, was awarded two ‘ASTORS Homeland Security Awards in 2021 by American Security Today.

Canon was awarded a Platinum Award in the Best Email Security Solution Category for mxHERO*+ Canon multifunction printers (MFP) and a Silver Award in the Best Information Technology Access Control Control Authentication System category.

Canon has been ranked in the “ASTORS” Awards Program for the fifth year consecutively. Since 2017, Canon has received at least two awards.

Platinum Award, Best Email Security Solution: MxHERO + Canon MFP
The mxHERO*+ Canon MFP won a Platinum Award for this category for the second year in a row. Remote work is still a vital component of many businesses. Cloud services that offer security features are an important way to increase security. mxHERO is a cloud service that allows intelligent email management. It can be integrated with the scanning function on a Canon imageRUNNER ADANCE MFP. This will allow customers to collaborate, govern, manage, and share information, while also implementing security features.

Once a document has been scanned to email using a compatible MFP, it will first be routed to Secure Scan to Email by mxHERO. The service can automatically move the scanned document from the supported cloud storage service to the user’s preference based on the initial setup and configuration of the user. **

Customers receive an email with a link to cloud storage. This provides a seamless tool that streamlines workflow and adds security features to their scan-to-email process. The ability to use powerful storage platforms can create cost-effective solutions. It also supports compatible imageRUNNER ADANCE and imageCLASS multifunction printing devices. Administrators can use mxHERO to keep track of all email attachments being scanned at work or at home. This is a solution for today’s hybrid model of work.

Silver Award, Best IT Access Control & Authentication System: imageRUNNER ADANCE DX Series + uniFLOW online + Print via Cloud
ImageRUNNER ADVANCE series with uniFLOW online won a Silver Award. This award recognizes its ability to enable customers to use advanced scanning and security features in flexible ways.

Secure Print allows users to send documents from compatible mobile devices to imageRUNNER ADANCE DX Series printers using both their desktops and laptops. uniFLOW Online helps to limit unauthorized device use by requiring users at the MFP to verify their identity before scanning or printing.

Tammy Waitt, cofounder and editor of American Security Today, stated that the prestigious annual “ASTORS” Homeland Security Awards program recognizes the most innovative and forward-thinking security products on the market today. The program recognizes distinguished vendor and government solutions that provide enhanced value, benefit, and intelligence to end users in a range of government, homeland security and enterprise vertical markets.

American Security Today judges selected the ‘ASTORS Award-winners. The awards were presented at the Bronze, Gold, Silver, and Silver levels.
