Bitdefender and Sharp partner to boost threat prevention in MFPs

Bitdefender, experts in cybersecurity, and Sharp Electronics have announced a new partnership, enabling the integration of Bitdefender antimalware technology into Sharp’s new range of Future Workplace A3 multifunction printers (MFPs).

The partnership strengthens cybersecurity threat prevention in Sharp’s new range of business MFPs available across Europe at a time when cybercriminals are increasingly targeting endpoint devices, including printers, to plant malware, steal intellectual property, and launch espionage campaigns. 

Jason Cort, Director of Product Planning and Marketing, Sharp Europe said, “Sharp is delighted to partner with a global leader in cybersecurity and threat prevention to better protect our customers. This partnership with Bitdefender enables Sharp to further extend our security capabilities and demonstrates our commitment to keeping our customers’ data, devices, and networks secure.”

With Bitdefender advanced antimalware technology, scanning all data and files processed on the Sharp A3 MFPs, organisations can detect malicious activity and threats at an early stage before the business is impacted.

Bitdefender antimalware provides protection against known and unknown malware, including viruses, trojans, worms, ransomware, advanced persistent threats, spyware, and more.

Integrated into the new Sharp Future Workplace A3 line of MFPs, the Bitdefender antimalware engine performs real-time scanning of all input and output data from the devices, alerting users, IT, or security teams when threats are detected. 

Sorin Dediu, Vice President of Products and Engineering at Bitdefender added, “any device with an IP address connected to a corporate network represents a potential access point for cybercriminals to exploit. Attackers target MFPs and other internet of things (IoT) devices because they know these devices are often left unprotected. We are happy to partner with Sharp to help make its MFPs more secure and resilient, and better protect its customers from advanced threats.”
