KYOCERA Document Solutions America Announces Partnership with ELATEC

RFID card user authentication for Print- and Document Management provides security, speed, simplicity, savings and user satisfaction.

FAIRFIELD, NJ – September 24, 2018 – KYOCERA Document Solutions America, Inc., one of the world’s leading document solutions companies, announced its partnership with ELATEC, a world leader in identity authentication and access control solutions.

Under this partnership, Kyocera has included ELATEC RFID card readers as a recommended user authentication solution for its network of Kyocera multifunction printer dealers.

RFID-enabled user authentication allows an employee of an organization to release potentially sensitive documents from a printer by logging in with a wave of their RFID card instead of cumbersome manual entry of personal identification numbers and passwords.  Importantly, RFID also provides additional security. Passwords and PINs are easily compromised when users share them with colleagues or watch over someone's shoulder to steal their information. PINs can also be easily miskeyed, releasing the material to the wrong person. RFID cards, which are typically assigned as employee ID and door access cards, are less likely to be shared between employees and cannot be easily duplicated or hacked.  ELATEC RFID card readers can also be configured to add complexity that makes it nearly impossible for the information on the card to be copied or stolen.

“ELATEC supports over 60 card types simultaneously, requiring less card reader types. This gives us an edge in larger environments, such as hospitals and colleges and is just one of the many great features of ELATEC card readers”, said Rosann LeRose, Solutions Marketing Manager for KYOCERA Document Solutions America, Inc. “This is a real differentiator when combining this and other solutions to our customers and enables Kyocera to provide a true Total Document Solution.”

ELATEC RFID card readers are specially designed to work seamlessly with Kyocera’s own Net Manager, DMConnect and ALL approved HyPAS Solutions.
