Kyocera Mita America’s Data Security Kit Offers Advanced Encryption and Overwrite Capabilities for Company’s Looking to Protect Their Confidential Information

FAIRFIELD, New Jersey – April 29, 2008 - Kyocera Mita America, one of the world's leading document solutions companies, announced today it has been awarded ISO 15408 Certification for Data Security Kit (C) for their monochrome workgroup multifunctional products. Data Security Kit (C) meets Evaluation Assurance Level 3 (EAL3) requirements, conforming to the standards set forth and known as Common Criteria. With the announcement of this certification, Kyocera is building on its strategy to providing innovative products and solutions that meet the security initiatives and requirements of today’s business. Kyocera is committed to ensuring organizations with ways to best protect their confidential documents, information and assets, while providing a reliable deterrent to unauthorized activity and access. Data Security Kit (C) is the latest security kit option to achieve ISO 15408 certification.

Taking an aggressive step toward ensuring its customers can meet both compliance requirements, as set forth by Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), HIPAA, or other federal government mandates, as well as stringent data security needs to ensure secure printing, sending and coping of highly confidential materials, Kyocera Mita America has added critical enhancements to its Data Security Kit, including Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Overwriting and Data Encryption. Data Security Kit (C) will overwrite all data on the standard HDD at the device level immediately after each copy, print and scan job is completed. Additionally, with fast and efficient encryption at the HDD included in the process, both the data management table and image data are eliminated; further ensuring data integrity is maximized.

“Security is a critical part to an organization’s business strategy, and protecting the data that is printed, scanned and copied has become not just an essential part of that strategy, but also ensures the daily operations and workflow of that organization are maximized," said William Cassidy, associate director, Product and Solutions Marketing, Kyocera Mita America. “Kyocera continually seeks to achieve the highest level of security certifications, and the enhanced Data Security Kit (C) ensures customers can confidently perform their job functions without feeling that their confidential documents are over-exposed.”

The new Data Security Kit (C) is compatible and ISO 15408 certified for Kyocera Mita America’s KM-5050, KM-4050, KM-3050, KM-3060 and KM-2560 workgroup multifunctional products (MFPs). It is also available as an option for the FS-9530DN and FS-9130DN workgroup printers. For more information about Kyocera’s compliance and certifications on its products and solutions, please visit:
