Kyocera Mita America Inc., a document solutions company, has partnered with API Technologies Corp., a prime contractor in engineered systems, components and secure communications, to provide API’s HSPD-12-compliant Cryptek Netgard MFD (multi-function device) as an integrated component to enhance the data security of Kyocera’s document imaging devices.
API’s Cryptek Netgard brings printers, scanners and copiers into HSPD-12 compliance by enabling smart card authentication and access.
It enables organizations to maintain consistent security protocols including digitally signed and encrypted emails for positive confirmation of the sender, protected network access from unauthorized users, as well as limited distribution of privileged materials, in accordance with current government regulations.
By using the Kyocera HyPAS development architecture, the Cryptek Netgard is integrated directly into select Kyocera’s multifunctional products and uses the existing 8.5 inch color touch screen panel for function control.
