NORWALK, Conn. —
While the growth of wireless devices and the Internet of Things offers businesses an abundance of data and connectivity, a lack of proper protection of these technologies potentially can make networks more vulnerable to cybercrime. At next week’s Gartner Symposium/ITxpo, experts from Xerox (NYSE: XRX) will demonstrate multi-layered strategies to protect multifunction printers (MFPs) and networks from data theft.
CIOs and senior IT executives visiting Xerox at booth 719 will learn how ConnectKey® MFPsand customized apps coupled with Xerox security solutions have helped turn office printers into smart, secure workplace assistants. Xerox will also sponsor a pop-up business center in the Grand Foyer of the Dolphin Hotel and several workspaces at affiliated hotels where attendees can print, scan and even translate documents. Xerox will also host two sessions to explore the future of cybersecurity.
“Gartner Symposium drives dialog on the trends shaping IT and business, and cybersecurity remains a hot topic,” said Alissa Johnson, chief information security officer, Xerox. “We believe Xerox’s approach to protecting people, data and devices from threats remains a differentiator in the document technology market.”
