Engineers did not locate any major security vulnerabilities with the bizhub i-Series

Testing performed on the devices by NTT DATA, an international IT services provider, and the Security division of NTT, did not identify any vulnerabilities were found during recent.

While network-connected devices offer end users opportunities for collaboration and ease of use, the same machines are often attractive targets for hackers, which can exploit a security vulnerability and expose an entire network to data theft, business disruption and financial turmoil.

However, after spending around 80 hours trying to hack into the devices, NTT DATA engineers did not locate any major security vulnerabilities. 

“Konica Minolta puts its products through rigorous internal cybersecurity tests to protect their systems and ensure they meet PCI, HIPAA, FERPA and GDPR compliance requirements,” Konica Minolta says.

“But to further assure customers that the printers exceed industry standards for cybersecurity compliance, Konica Minolta invested in an extra layer of threat protection — penetration tests provided by NTT DATA and the Security division of NTT.”
