  • Ricoh passes rigorous Keypoint Intelligence security testing program for multifunction printers

    Ricoh Europe, London, 20 March 2020Ricoh today announced it has passed a new rigorous security validation testing program initiated by Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab, the industry’s leading authority in hardcopy device testing and research.

    Targeting connected MFPs and printers, the program establishes industry standard benchmarks in the areas of Device Penetration, Policy Compliance, and Firmware Resilience. The program comprises hands-on testing in concert with accredited security testing firms.

    During two years of program development, Keypoint Intelligence solicited input from leading document imaging OEMs including Ricoh. The result is a three-track test suite that addresses security from various vectors to ensure devices are safeguarded against vulnerabilities. The firmware featured on Ricoh’s IM Series of intelligent devices passed the Device Penetration portion of the suite.

    Jamie Bsales, Director, Solutions & Security Analysis, Keypoint Intelligence, says: “Ricoh’s commitment to participating in the Device Penetration testing program validates the
    company’s dedication to ensuring device security for its customers is of the utmost importance. This initial round of testing was extensive and included both automated and manual ‘hacking’ attempts to gain unauthorized access to the devices and the test network. This hands-on device penetration testing confirmed that the latest Ricoh IM-series device firmware has in place appropriate security mechanisms and settings to make the devices exponentially less vulnerable to outside attacks.”

    Olivier Vriesendorp, Vice President of Product Marketing, Ricoh Europe, adds: “Passing such a stringent test relating to a pressing business issue is a testament to the importance and value we place in information security. Helping to safeguard our customers operations through dependable, high performing and secure devices allows them to focus on their core business activities.”
