imageRUNNER Security Kit

Device Management


  • Standard Device Security:
    All imageRUNNER products ship with many standard security features. When shipped as standalone digital copying devices, the imageRUNNER product line offers the following protection:

    Copy Control Access: This standard feature permits device administrators to register up to 300 (depending on model) department and user IDs, thereby requiring end-users to enter a password prior to accessing device copying capabilities.

    Restricting Device Setup Screens: imageRUNNER device setup screens can be password-protected to ensure that administrative device settings are not changed without appropriate authority.

    Mailbox Password Protection: All imageRUNNER devices ship with up to 100 User Mailboxes, which can be used for storage of scanned and printed data, integrating scanned and printed data, or long-term document storage. Mailbox security is provided through the ability to lock down access to the Mailbox system via system administrative passwords, and the ability to designate unique passwords for access of individual device Mailboxes.

  • Network and Print Security:
    When implemented in networked configurations, imageRUNNER products offer unique benefits as communication hubs for corporate information. Network connectivity also brings heightened requirements for security. As a standard offering, imageRUNNER products deliver the following network and print security capabilities.

    Enabling/Disabling Protocols: Network administrators are provided with the ability to enable or disable specific device protocols and print applications through Canon's system setup and installation utilities. As a result, unwanted device communication can be disabled, as can access to the system via specific transport protocols.

    Print Job Accounting: A standard feature in Canon's printer drivers, Print Job Accounting requires users to enter an administrator-defined password prior to printing, thereby restricting device access to those authorized to print.

    Secured Print: A standard capability on the imageRUNNER 2200/2800/3300/3300i/5000/6000/7200/85/8500/105 models, the Secured Print function within Canon's printer drivers requires an end-user to enter a password prior to job release. Upon receipt of the print job at the device, the user must enter the job password in order to print. Using this feature, users can ensure that they are at the device when their job is delivered.

    Mailbox Printing: Another secure document delivery feature, Mailbox Printing allows users to send a job to their individual Mailbox. Once stored in the Mailbox (if it is password-protected), a user must enter his or her password to retrieve jobs previously stored.

  • Data Overwrite Protection:
    Many of the functional capabilities and unique features of Canon imageRUNNER technology are delivered through the use of an internal Image Server. The Image Server used within Canon imageRUNNER products is comprised of hard disk storage and RAM, and varies in size from device to device. Although storage and RAM size vary, the internal Image Server delivers consistent functional capabilities from one imageRUNNER system to the next, and is largely responsible for data handling across all device functions.

    Because of its architecture, the vast majority of jobs processed by imageRUNNER systems result in images being written to the Image Server hard disk drive and RAM. Following the completion of jobs, latent image data remains on the Image Server Hard Disk. To address this condition, Canon has developed an optional imageRUNNER Security Kit, which allows security conscious customers to configure their imageRUNNER systems with the internal software necessary to randomly overwrite internal Image Server disks, erasing previous data stored as part of routine job-processing tasks.
