The Canon C3530i automatically encrypts data stored on the main unit’s HDD to limit unauthorized access to sensitive data. And information can remain private and secure by controlling access through IPsec, port filtering, and SSL technology. 

Device and Fleet Management

Administrators can create settings that will be distributed across a fleet from a single centralized point of control. This maes installation and management of all devices a streamlined and highly efficient process. Users or admins can check the status of their consumables, capture meter readings, and manage drivers from a single remote location. All newer devices also support standard legacy systems, so organizations can still function efficiently and productively, even with a fleet of mixed systems. Consistency across devices, and simplified maintenance across an entire fleet are possible with Canon’s image RUNNER ADVANCE C3530i.
