Canon enhances workspace print offering with security and sustainability benefits


Canon UK has announced a refresh to its award-winning range of imageRUNNER and imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX multifunction and single function devices.

Through this expanded offering, Canon Europe can support partners in strengthening and diversifying their product portfolios for customers - with a broader, stronger offering which includes improvements such as enhanced security features, lower energy consumption and reduced polystyrene waste in packaging. Designed to support the evolving needs of businesses, the imageRUNNER and imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX printers also include collaboration tools for hybrid working.

Reducing environmental impact

The portfolio refresh has been designed to have reduced environmental impact – including a reduction of Typical Electricity Consumption (TEC) values of up to 16% compared to previous models.  Devices and parts have also been designed to last longer - helping customers maximise uptime, while reducing service visits and impact on the environment.  Additionally, the polystyrene packaging previously used has been reduced and replaced with recyclable cardboard to limit single-use waste – helping partners to offer a more sustainable option to their customers.

Secure at every stage

The updated imageRUNNER and imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX printers also offer customers device, data and network protection for security at every stage of the document lifecycle.  The latest security firmware delivers end-to-end protection and both include encrypted file sharing, featuring TLS1.3, WPA3 & SMB 3.1.1 support. The imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX products are also armed with FIPS 140-3* for certified encryption performance.

All devices in the updated portfolio also include two-factor authentication, in addition to incorporating stricter password rules for added protection. To ensure protection from malicious cyber-attacks, businesses can gain visibility thanks to secure status visualisation. The refreshed product ranges are also supported by a Security Settings Navigator utility, which allows users to apply optimum settings required for different network environments, without the need for a security specialist.

Productivity and collaboration for hybrid working

Canon’s devices help businesses to optimise remote and hybrid working, thanks to uniFLOW Online. This award-winning cloud print solution allows users to work smarter and faster, while the entire print environment can be managed through the cloud by controlling access and enhancing document security. 

For additional productivity, the imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX 8900 series offers a comprehensive range of finishing options to produce professional quality output. This allows businesses to bring some production capabilities for marketing collateral or business communications in-house, with full control over their documents.

Marc Bory, Vice President, Head of DP&S Marketing and Innovation, at Canon Europe said: “With many businesses permanently adopting a hybrid-working model, the needs of businesses are changing. It is clear there is more demand for increasingly sustainable, secure technology, as well as for solutions that can help boost productivity and collaboration.  The refresh of our imageRUNNER and imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX ranges is testament to this – helping our partners to offer an even stronger portfolio to their end customers.”
