UXBRIDGE, U.K.: Xerox yesterday introduced ConnectKey™, a software system embedded in Xerox multifunction printers (MFPs) and an array of solutions that respond to an increasingly mobile workforce and the need for more advanced IT security across connected devices.

 

Sixteen ConnectKey MFPs – including the new WorkCentre® 5800 and 7800 Series – will use the industry’s first embedded security protection from McAfee, giving IT managers more control and peace of mind in “bring your own device” (BYOD) workplaces. ConnectKey MFPs also have an extra layer of security with Cisco’s TrustSec, which protects data paths to and from the devices.

With ConnectKey’s open Application Programming Interface (API), sales channel partners, systems integrators and resellers can develop and embed apps on the MFP with no additional software requirements.

“ConnectKey was designed for one purpose: to simplify how work gets done in a secure, ‘always on’ world,” said Douraid Zaghouani, president, Channel Partner Operations, Xerox. “Through the MFP as a secure hub, ConnectKey’s features include the ability to scan and upload documents to cloud repositories, send business-critical documents directly into workflow processes and print securely and easily from any mobile device. It’s Xerox innovation that takes hassles out of workdays and adds more productivity into workplaces.”

Concord Hospitality Enterprises Company, a hotel management and development company based in Raleigh, N.C., recognises the benefits of ConnectKey – such as scanning to SharePoint and mobile printing – in its headquarters and plans to expand these services to its 90 hotels in North America.

“From an innovation standpoint, ConnectKey is great. My only regret is that we didn't have it sooner,” said Brian Cornell, chief information officer, Information Technology, Concord Hospitality.
