Xerox’s AltaLink  devices are the first multifunction printers to be certified by the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) under new testing standards for  security protection profile for hardcopy devices. This new protection profile is based on the security requirements specified by United States and Japanese government agencies. NIAP is the U.S. government organization that ensures compliance with the global Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation.
The Protection Profile for Hardcopy Devices v1.0 (HCD-PP v1.0) intends to protect the information processed by an MFP from security threats and includes new requirements for cryptography, authentication and secure protocols.
“Detecting and preventing cyber threats is a 24/7, 365 days a year requirement for all enterprises,” said Tracey Koziol, senior VP, Workplace Solutions Business Group, Xerox. “NIAP and Common Criteria Certification gives our customers – particularly federal government agencies – assurance that our new AltaLink devices have world-class security protection built-in, and that their critical information is safe.”
