Network Device Management and Security
Streamline Output Device Administration and Strengthen an All-Too-Common Weak Link In Security
If you manage an IT network, very likely you have mission-critical responsibilities that demand your focus and attention. Minor printer or copier issues can take up time and resources that could be better spent elsewhere. So why not take advantage of tools that make it easy to streamline and automate output device management?
Do you use several different device management utilities? Or worse, do you administer network output devices manually, one at a time? If you manage more than one device, the powerful, easy-to-use network and device management solutions from Canon will help simplify your work life, freeing you to focus on higher-level business priorities.
Traditional security measures focus on networks, workstations, email, and databases. Devices like printers, faxes, scanners, and copiers are usually left vulnerable. Is critical company information fully protected when a copied confidential document can so easily be carried out the door?
Canon imageWARE solutions help you close this gap by protecting all documents and information that flow through your output devices. Not only can you safeguard print, scan, and fax activities, you can even monitor the contents of copied documents to prevent leaks.

Simplify Your Day with Automated Tasks
Chances are you need to add new devices, set up new employees, and establish new processes regularly. Canon device management solutions streamline these processes with tools that automatically discover devices, update Address Books, and synchronize saved shortcuts across your organization. Now you can turn projects that were once a chore – including meter reading or print driver updates – into automated, scheduled tasks that occur at off-peak usage times.

Nothing disrupts an otherwise productive workday quite like a help desk call that might have been prevented.
