Xerox unveils new ConnectKey software system
Feb 21, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Xerox, a provider of business process and document management, has introduced ConnectKey, a software system embedded in Xerox multifunction printers, or MFPs.
According to the company, 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, the company said.
"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."
ConnectKey's solutions give IT professionals, channel partners and large, medium and small workplaces fast and easy ways to get work done, including: standard apps or build-your-own; cloud access; connect to SharePoint; easy IT integration; print from anywhere.
The WorkCentre 7220/7225, the Xerox ColorQube 9300 Series and the Xerox ColorQube 8700/8900 Series with the ConnectKey Controllers and the Xerox Apps Studio will be available early in the third quarter.
