Konica Minolta Business Solutions Hong Kong (Konica Minolta) today announced the successors of its award-winning bizhub i-Series multifunctional printers (MFP) and  All-in-one printers (AIO). This next generation of devices features functionality that places ease of use in the modern workplace at the forefront, and directly tackles concerns around security in the workplace with its advanced firmware upgrade that delivers even greater protection against malicious activity.

Konica Minolta’s bizhub C4051i compact color multifunctional printer features a robust engine, a quad-core Central Processing Unit with 5 GB of memory and a 256 GB SSD, enabling lightning-fast responses and top-notch performance.

Enhanced security

Notably, just 11% of organizations with between 250 and 499 employees and 27% with 500 to 999 employees have complete confidence in the security of their print infrastructure, according to the latest Quocirca ‘The Print Security Landscape, 2023’ report. Konica Minolta’s new bizhub i-Series provides increased visibility and security throughout the organization, enabling users to be more alert and responsive. While enhanced security features mean users will always be safe in the knowledge that their information is protected.

The new “Authentication Attack Detection” adds to strengthen detection of unauthorized access, such as brute force attacks from malicious users. By quickly detecting and predicting suspicious behavior and cyber attacks in the client’s environment and notifying the administrator, it is possible to strengthen the security of their entire environment, preventing attacks without introducing new security-related tools.

If organizations select BitDefender (LK-116) protection, additional layers of security are added for different target groups. Optional (LK-116)  prevents the spread of malware to other networked devices and ensures the MFP does not become a springboard for the loss of corporate information. In case of a threat detection, the anti-virus solution immediately notifies the IT administrator, providing enriched information about the type and origin of the threat, while end users can see the current state via the home screen.

Improved ease of use

Every new bizhub i-Series model has an improved and more intuitive user interface. Applications can now be grouped into folders by theme or by frequency of use, like smartphones, for quick access.

The new models also simplify the login process for customers using Microsoft Azure (Microsoft Entra ID) or Google Workspace and offer the ability to connect to their files or folders with the use of single sign-on (SSO).

Konica Minolta’s new bizhub i-Series includes:

A4 color: bizhub C3321i, bizhub C4051i

A4 monochrome: bizhub 4751i
