Data Security And Information Protection

From devices to documents and data, Canon's security solutions deliver the protection your business needs to laugh in the face of danger.


The risk of your business succumbing to a cyber crime has never been higher than it is today. The consequences of a data breach are significant, long lasting and costly - regardless of whether the breach was intentional or not. Canon's Security solutions address these risks, targeting vulnerabilities associated with your devices, documents and data.

With confidential data regularly moving between a user’s desktop, mobile device and mutifunction printer, it's important to take measures to help protect your print environment. The imageRUNNER ADVANCE platform offers a range of security capabilities to help facilitate the confidentiality, accessibility, and availability of your information.

As a Canon user, you’ll benefit from comprehensive and constantly updated security features incorporated into the imageRUNNER ADVANCE Series to help you efficiently manage security policies and monitor activity. User-friendly, highly secure and developed with in-depth research and comprehensive market experience, Canon and Trellix™ reduce your risks of a data breach and boost your data security.

Protected Security Management

Security policy settings are configured from a central area of the remote administration tool and can be controlled with a dedicated password. After establishing these settings, an administrator can utilise device management tools to export across other devices in the fleet. The security policy settings can be monitored at regular intervals. Notifications can be configured to alert when changes are made and even reapply the established policy settings.

SIEM Integration

SIEM allows companies to help identify internal and external threats on a number of levels: threat intelligence, mobile security, and cloud security. SIEM allows automated real-time monitoring of large amounts of data to provide alerts, analytics, and historical analysis for incident investigation and compliance reporting.
