The iR-ADV and iR MFDs provide a range of security measures that are increasingly important in the current digital workplace. The Verify System at Startup and McAfee Embedded Control verify the integrity of the system and check for any tampering from startup to operation, preventing attacks from malware or unauthorized modifications.

Minimizing downtime

Depending on the type of abnormality detected during startup, the device can automatically reboot to recover, minimizing downtime. The iR-ADV MFDs also support Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 to safely encrypt critical data stored on the MFDs, further protecting it against malware.

Designed for optimal ease of use, the MFDs share similar features on the user interface (UI) across iR-ADV and iR devices, providing a consistent experience. The Smart Timeline feature displays the history of the last 10 settings used, helping users save time spent on repetitive operations. The MFDs also provide users with the ability to customize preferences, offering personalization of the initial display screen, display language, and frequently used functions. Users can streamline repetitive operations, significantly improving productivity.

As businesses shift to cloud-based solutions, the new MFDs lineup works seamlessly with Canon’s proprietary uniFLOW Online, a cloud-based print management solution that helps businesses manage their print environments. uniFLOW Online provides businesses with central control by tracking print, scan, and copy usage. Administrators can review the information within the uniFLOW Online Dashboard and identify potential areas for cost reduction. The solution also helps strengthen security by preventing unauthorized access with device authentication.
