Xerox announced security enhancements to its line of Xerox AltaLink Multifunction Printers (MFPs). Now IT professionals have an extra layer of protection and a more proactive approach to network threats.
By augmenting Xerox’s embedded security technologies with McAfee Data Exchange Layer (DXL) and Cisco Platform Exchange Grid (pxGrid) platforms, cybercriminals are stopped from gaining a foothold into networks and compromising sensitive data.
When a threat is detected, McAfee Embedded Control whitelisting technology halts the attack. The MFP sends an alert to McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator, which communicates the event to Cisco Identity Services Engine over the DXL/pxGrid framework. Cisco Authentication Service takes the affected device off the network until the extent of the attack can be completely evaluated.
With this level of integration, customers can centrally manage and enforce security policies, break up silos and eliminate blind spots.
