Samsung Offers Embedded Common Access Cards for More Secure Multifunction Printers

RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J., August 12, 2010 – Samsung Electronics America Inc., a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Corporation, recently introduced a Common Access Card (CAC) solution which provides higher level security for sensitive government information.



Using the Samsung CAC solution, an organization can restrict unauthorized users from sending sensitive documents via multifunction printers (MFPs). Required by the Homeland Security Presidential Directive HSPD-12, the solution is approved by the U.S. Department of Defense and meets or exceeds all necessary security protocols, including Common Criteria Certification.

The CAC solution is embedded into the firmware of the MFP and offers increased security when compared to other CAC options that require an external piece of hardware between the MFP and network. The solution allows LDAP authentication to bring in the users’ address book.

“Samsung’s printer solutions, like the embedded CAC solution, are developed in direct response to our customers needs,” said Ken Colby, director of printer marketing at Samsung Electronics Enterprise Business Division. “We ensure that security features are top priority when providing MFPs for our government customers.”

Samsung’s CAC solution is currently available in a selection of Samsung’s multi-function printers geared toward government organizations, including the SCX-5635FN, SCX-5835FN, SCX-6545N, SCX-6555N, CLX-6250FX and CLX-8540ND.

The CAC solution, including the SCM SCR3310 card reader, can be embedded in these models for an MSRP of $299.99 with a one year warranty. To locate a convenient Samsung reseller, please search by product name at http://www.samsung.com/us/.
