Hard Disk Drive Encryption

Canon means business when it comes to the security of your own data on imageRUNNER devices. Ever since hard disk drives became the norm on multifunction printers, Canon has been committed to protecting your data against compromise. From non-standard operating systems and non-contiguous file storage, imageRUNNER devices inherently provide a sufficient level of assurance for most organisations.

For organisations that require a higher level of protection, Canon is proud to offer the Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Security options for imageRUNNER devices. Whether you need to meet the strict security protocols of the private sector or comply with the stringent privacy and auditing regulations of the public sector, Canon provides two optional features that deliver higher levels of protection - HDD Data Encryption and HDD Erase

Hard Disk Drive Erase

Even after deletion, data can be potentially retrieved

Once data has been written to ANY hard disk, the potential exists for it to be retrieved even after its been deleted, unless its been sufficiently overwritten. To counteract this reality, Canon has developed and implemented the HDDD Data Erase function within the imageRUNNER devices. Once activated, the HDD Erase function can ensure that no traces of any temporary data or deleted documents remain accessible on the disk drive.

Proven Algorithms protect your data

When it comes to encryption Canon have produced a kit that meets the requirements of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the USA National Security Agency (NSA). The data encryption kit consists of an add-on board, which when configured provides 256-bit AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) or 168-bit TDEA (Triple Data Encryption Algorithm), depending on the model. Once data is written to the hard drive, it is almost impossible for anyone seeking to recover it from the device or through external recovery utilities.

Certified Security

Not only have Canon produced a security solution for the imageRUNNER range of multifunction printers, but the kit has achieved a Common Criteria Certification of Evaulation Assurance Level 3 (EAL3). This level of assurance will help companies to meet internal requirements such as Gramm-Leach_Bliley Act (GLB), Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Family Rights Privacy Act (FERPA).

Extensive Compatibility

While the Hard Disk Drive Encryption and Erase Kit is not compatible with ALL Canon devices, it is available for an extensive selection of the imageRUNNER multifunction printers. The following list shows which imageRUNNER devices the kit is available for
