Canon announces the New 3rd Edition Models Builds upon the long standing Success of the Third Generation imageRUNNER ADVANCE Platform in Latin America


MELVILLE, N.Y., April 2, 2019 – Canon U.S.A., Inc. – Latin America Group is pleased to introduce new models with even more built-in features and functionality will replace existing models in the award-winning imageRUNNER ADVANCE product line. With enhanced security integrated at the design level, this new edition extends beyond traditional MFP security features to help prevent unauthorized access to organizational assets, while expanding our existing focus on reliability and workflow efficiency.

This is the first line of MFPs from Canon to incorporate integration with Security Information and Event Management, or SIEM, systems. SIEM solutions collect and analyze machine data from across an organization’s IT environment to provide real-time indicators of potential security violations. Many organizations currently relying on SIEM systems are either manually importing the data from their printers into the SIEM, or not including their printers in SIEM monitoring at all. This new integration fills a void by offering the ability to include printers in this comprehensive security monitoring.

Additional security features include Verify System at Startup, a process of utilizing a Root of Trust (RoT) to protect the device boot code, firmware, and applications from unauthorized modification, and automatic security certificate updates to reduce the burden on IT teams.

In the coming months, Canon plans to offer further development in the information security market landscape by continuing to enhance its product integration in areas such as runtime detection to further protect against intrusion.

With business strategies favoring higher levels of productivity, workflow efficiency is more important than ever. The new lineup includes improved OCR accuracy for more useful data records, and a seamless and intuitive user experience. The new home screen can help employees stay organized and the timeline feature can easily recall previous jobs by user.

The new lineup will include enhancements to cloud-based solutions to help enable flexibility and workflow efficiency. To help users easily access scan profiles, print from available cloud destinations at their imageRUNNER ADVANCE, and easily track usage by specific departments, updates to uniFLOW Online include Print from Cloud, Scan Template Library, and Central Department Management and Reporting, respectively.

Many of the new features are included in the Unified Firmware Platform (UFP) v3.8 that is now also available for previous editions of the third generation imageRUNNER ADVANCE platform.

The continuous development of the imageRUNNER ADVANCE portfolio through ongoing product updates, new features through our Unified Firmware Platform and tight collaboration with solutions like uniFLOW Online will help secure and improve client document workflows now, and into the future of the workplace. We are confident that these new additions to our product offerings will strengthen your organization’s position as a leading business solutions provider.
