Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab, the industry’s leading authority in hardcopy device testing and research, and Context Information Security, London and New York-based leading specialist in cyber security consultancy, today announced a strategic partnership for the launch of a new security testing benchmark aimed at advanced MFPs and printers.
According to Keypoint Intelligence Group Director of Office Document Technology, Randy Dazo, “We’re excited about working with Context on our new security verification program. Combining our expertise in market research, along with Context’s technical consultancy and cyber advisory services, our program will mimic real-world threats and will examine the various potential security shortcomings of networked/Internet-connected output devices.”
“We are delighted to be collaborating closely with Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab on this inaugural testing initiative,” stated Mark Raeburn, CEO of Context Information Security. “Some of the world’s most successful organizations turn to us for advice, technical assurance, incident response and investigation services, so we see a natural fit to engage in a program that will provide security standards that the printer and MFP industry should strive to follow.”
Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab and Context plan to begin testing during Q4 2018 and will be announcing devices that pass as they become available.
