Canon Security Solutions

Security is not a destination, it is a journey through a multi-dimensional threat environment that can compromise your information from many different sources. Information flows through organisations and the hands of numerous employees, each with varying degrees of risk awareness, while dangerous external threats remain pervasive. Canon’s security solutions offer a reliable, holistic, and multi-layered approach comprising of five key pillars:

Device Security — for authentication, HD overwrite, and encryption. Print Security — for pull printing, keyword intercept, and auditing. Document Security — for secure storage, access, and copy-lock. Information Security — file encryption, tracking, and data loss prevention. Cybersecurity — for consultation, testing, training, and incident response.

Canon CAD/GIS Printing Technology

ICT drivers are also raising the demand for CAD designs and GIS mapping, but without the right tools, it’s hard to produce accurate, high-quality prints in a way that’s easy, reliable and fits seamlessly into your workflow. Detailed large format prints are often the best way to communicate and Canon technology is at the forefront of these complex printing techniques. Canon CAD/GIS Printing technology allows secure sharing of drawings, time and cost savings, as well as access to Canon’s team of leading CAD, GIS, and BIM experts.

“We’re investing in Egypt, one of the largest economies in the region with a thriving entrepreneurial landscape that’s set to grow in the coming years. Canon will continue to support our business partners and customers, keeping them in tune with the latest imaging technologies, products, and services,” says Eiji Ota, IPS Director at CCNA for the DRBG region. “With the emergence of entrepreneurship and SMBs across the country, we will help to boost their business acumen with access to innovative technologies to support their growth and business objectives.”
