Kyocera Document Solutions South Africa is delighted to launch a new range of A3 TASKalfa multi-functional products, which provide secure ways to print for organisations of all sizes. The new series builds on the success of the existing TASKalfa range with new developments that offer improved usability and security.

These products can prevent potential infiltration of malware or unauthorised firmware into users’ systems with the included Trusted Platform Module and Secure Boot. Data is protected by the standard Run-Time Integrity Checks and built-in data encryption function, making this new range a substantial upgrade when it comes to print security.

This range of multi-functional products also relies on an award-winning engine that is already deployed in existing products in the TASKalfa range. Given the Most Reliable Colour Copier MFP Brand Award by BLI, the engine has proven its reliability, which helps minimise downtime, resulting in improved worker productivity. Within the currently available selection are colour devices TASKalfa 2553ci, 3253ci and TASKalfa 5053ci and monochrome options TASKalfa 5003i and TASKalfa 6003i, which can reach speeds of up to 60 pages per minute for the fastest models in the series.

Two additional colour devices TASKalfa 4053ci and TASKalfa 6053ci will be launched in South Africa in the near future.

The new series features a full-colour touchscreen panel measuring 10.1 inches, enabling greater usability and wider access to a range of document management functions.

“At Kyocera, we know that security is a top priority for companies. Combining security with enhanced usability and award-winning reliability, this innovative new TASKalfa range is ideal for customers who are looking to print documents in high quality,” explains Sharon Peché, Marketing and Communications Manager at KYOCERA Document Solutions South Africa.

“Through this innovation, businesses can reduce costs without compromising on other crucial factors such as reliability or security, thus providing organisations with the ideal solution to their printing needs.”

Efficiency is boosted by the use of a human detection sensor, which enables a faster wake up from energy saving mode as a user approaches. Wasting time waiting for devices to print is a thing of the past. This is just one way in which work efficiency is improved with the implementation of a new TASKalfa device.

By combining this range with secure authentication software such as KYOCERA Net Manager and MyQ, the range can further enhance your data privacy protection measures in relation to the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) in Europe, and Protection of Personal Information (POPI) Act locally. In addition, the security and performance of the new models can be continuously monitored and remotely managed via KYOcentral and KYOCERA Fleet Services, available respectively as on-premises and cloud applications.

The complete offering of this line-up of TASKalfa products complemented with a broad range of software solutions therefore allows organisations to work in a more secure and efficient way. Being able to rely on an end-to-end solution that cuts costs while protecting vital data is a priority for all.
