• Xerox enhances AltaLink Workplace Assistants to make security and productivity key

        • Xerox has enhanced its AltaLink Multifunction Printers (MFPs) to help make security compliance and workplace productivity easier. 

          New software enhancements to these Workplace Assistants, enabled with ConnectKey technology, allow companies to monitor critical security settings and automatically reset unauthorised changes, a proactive step in stemming security breaches. Plus, a new intuitive user experience gives mid-to-large workgroups more ways to customise everyday tasks – maximising time and improving productivity.

          Dr. Alissa J. Abdullah, Chief Information Security Officer, Xerox said, “cybersecurity threats are becoming more sophisticated and so is Xerox’s response. We take a proactive approach to device, data and document security that puts organisations on the offensive when it comes to threat detection and response.”

          Key enhancements:

          • AltaLink’s new Configuration Watchdog: IT administrators can ensure devices stay within their defined security policies without external monitoring 
          • Enable companies to meet NIST 800-171 standards
          • Support for ThinPrint print management software
          • Customisable home screen: enables touchscreen re-ordering of frequently used apps and features to place most popular ones at the top for easy access
          • 1-Touch App: simplifies complicated and lengthy workflows by creating shortcuts
          • Fleet Orchestrator: automatically deploys software upgrades and tedious configuration changes across multiple devices

          Tracey Koziol, Senior Vice President, Global Offerings, Xerox added, “these updates articulate and demonstrate Xerox’s commitment to securing information and simplifying business processes for our customers. Our Workplace Assistants boost IT management efficiency and employee productivity.”
