Ricoh USA, Inc. today announced it passed a new, rigorous, security validation testing program initiated by Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab, the industry’s leading authority in hardcopy device testing and research.
“Ricoh’s commitment to participating in the Device Penetration testing program validates the company’s dedication to ensuring device security for its customers is of the utmost importance,” said Jamie Bsales, Director, Solutions & Security Analysis, Keypoint Intelligence. “This initial round of testing was extensive and included both automated and manual ‘hacking’ attempts to gain unauthorized access to the devices and the test network. This hands-on device penetration testing confirmed that the latest Ricoh IM-series device firmware has in place appropriate security mechanisms and settings to make the devices exponentially less vulnerable to outside attacks.”
“When we heard about this new testing program from Keypoint Intelligence, there was no question that we needed to be part of it,” said Steven Burger, Head of Engineering and Vice President of Portfolio Management, Ricoh USA, Inc. “It’s another example of how we’re committed to protecting and securing our customers’ data within our devices, and it’s critical we continue to test our technology to protect customers from a continually growing list of threats in our increasingly connected world.”
