Xerox AltaLink Devices Receive NIAP Certification

Published

on

Xerox has announced that its AltaLink devices are the first MFPs to be certified by the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) under rigorous new testing standards. The Xerox AltaLink devices received NIAP certification against the latest Common Criteria security protection profile for hardcopy devices. This new protection profile is based on the security requirements specified by United States and Japanese government agencies.

NIAP is the U.S. government organization that ensures compliance with the global Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation. The Protection Profile for Hardcopy Devices v1.0 (HCD-PP v1.0) intends to protect the information processed by an MFP from security threats and includes stringent new requirements for cryptography, authentication and secure protocols. Testing is done in independent labs and results in the most up-to-date and stringent security endorsement for small- and medium-size businesses, large enterprises and governments.

“Detecting and preventing cyber threats is a 24/7, 365 days a year requirement for all enterprises and a fundamental focus for Xerox,” said Tracey Koziol, senior vice president, Workplace Solutions Business Group, Xerox. “NIAP and Common Criteria Certification gives our customers – particularly federal government agencies – assurance that our new AltaLink devices have world-class security protection built-in, and that their critical information is safe.”

The Xerox ConnectKey technology-enabled AltaLink series includes 10 MFPs designed for enterprises of all sizes with medium and large workgroups. ConnectKey technology transforms traditional printing devices into smart, connected workplace assistants that reflect the evolving needs of today’s businesses. They include simple and secure on-the-go capabilities, cloud connectivity, and access to productivity boosting features and apps.

“Security is always number one priority for Xerox in the Middle East as well as globally. Regional SMEs, large enterprises and government entities are currently going through the digital transformation process and vendors need to ensure that their connected devices are ready to reflect a cyber-attack of any size. We pride ourselves with the best in class security provision when it comes to our technology and NIAP’s certification is the proof of our hard work and excellence in this area”, said Pui Chi Li, Head of Marketing for the Middle East and Africa at Xerox Developing Markets Operations.

Xerox security solutions span four key aspects in a multilayered approach: intrusion prevention, device detection, document and data detection, and external partnerships. An example of an external partnership is McAfee’s whitelisting technology, which constantly monitors and automatically protects against malware and comes embedded in all Xerox AltaLink products. When services and solutions are required to complement Xerox’s secure devices, managed print services offerings continue the security philosophy with an approach that prevents, detects, protects and reports.

Lamborghini Announces the New Urus S

Published

on

Automobili Lamborghini has announced the Urus S: the successor to the original Urus that established a new Super SUV niche in the luxury segment. The Urus S delivers increased power combined with luxurious versatility and presence to confirm its status as the ultimate lifestyle Lamborghini Super SUV, alongside the new Urus Performante for those seeking maximum sports performance.

“The Urus has proven its appeal for those seeking the decisive combination of the sportiest SUV and a Lamborghini to drive every day: the Urus S sits perfectly alongside the new Urus Performante, for those choosing the purest sublimation of performance, luxury, and versatility,” said Stephan Winkelmann, Chairman, and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini. “The Urus’ commercial success, with more than 20,000 vehicles produced, is testament to its credentials as the first and enduring Super SUV: the Urus S elevates that reputation.”

The twin-turbo V8 engine with increased power to 666 CV matches that of the Urus S’ Performante stablemate, delivering an improved weight-to-power ratio of 3.3 kg/CV. Acceleration is improved, with the Urus S propelling from 0-100 km/h in 3.5 seconds and 0-200 km/h in 12.5 seconds. With a top speed of 305 km/h, the Urus S brakes from 100 km/h back to zero in just 33.7m.  Its twin-turbo engine delivers 850 Nm of maximum torque already at 2,300 rpm up to a maximum 6,000 rpm. A retuned exhaust system reminds us that the Super SUV is a true Lamborghini, with a more distinct sound at start-up and a sharper note in each drive mode.

The Urus’ chassis with adaptive air suspension ensures super sports driving enjoyment but smooth handling on road surfaces, with immediately-available torque response and body balancing according to the particular requirements of its off-road drive selectors.  With the same powertrain calibration as the Urus Performante, the Urus S delivers optimum responsiveness and performance when required, alongside luxurious everyday driving pleasure from the Urus’ finely-tuned chassis settings.

The Urus S introduces specific and sophisticated design enhancements advocating its sporty but luxurious lifestyle persona, distinguishing the Super SUV’s presence in every environment. The interior of the Urus S is presented with a fully-revised color and trim offer. Both the new Bi-color Sportivo and a new Bi-color Sophisticated option feature the new Urus Performante stitching pattern.

The Bi-color Sportivo delivers a more discreet and stylish use of the complementary color; the Sophisticated black leather trim comes with new contrast color options in conjunction with refined new Blu Leandro and Verde Aura alongside tan, cream, and brown. Providing optimum opportunities for owners to specify their Urus S according to their lifestyle, the new color and trim options underline the high-performance credentials of the Urus S while delivering understated and timeless luxury.
