Press release from the issuing company
NORWALK, Conn. – Xerox today introduced ConnectKey, a software system embedded in Xerox multifunction printers (MFPs) and a set of solutions that respond to an increasingly mobile workforce and the need for more advanced IT security across connected devices.
Sixteen ConnectKey MFPs – including the new WorkCentre5800 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.
“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.”
Concord Hospitality Enterprises Company, a hotel management and development company based in Raleigh, N.C., recognizes the benefits of ConnectKey – such as scanning to SharePoint and mobile printing – in its headquarters and plans to expand these services to its 90 hotels in North America.
“From an innovation standpoint, ConnectKey is great. My only regret is that we didn't have it sooner,” said Brian Cornell, chief information officer, Information Technology, Concord Hospitality.
Work simplified with MFP apps, cloud access, mobile printing
ConnectKey’s solutions give IT professionals, channel partners and large, medium and small workplaces fast and easy ways to get work done, including:
The Xerox WorkCentre 5800 Series and the WorkCentre 7800 Series are available immediately; the WorkCentre 7220/7225, the Xerox ColorQube9300 Series and the Xerox ColorQube 8700/8900 Series with the ConnectKey Controllers will be available in the second quarter.
The ConnectKey for SharePoint and ConnectKey Share to Cloud are available immediately; the Xerox Apps Studio will be available early in the third quarter.
