Lexmark Devices Achieve Latest Common Criteria Certification

Lexmark has announced it has achieved certification against the latest Common Criteria Security Protection Profile, Hardcopy Devices v1.0 (HCD-PP v1.0). The Protection Profile for HCD-PPv1.0 is based on security requirements specified by the U.S. and Japanese governments for printers, designed to assure device, document and network security.

Common Criteria provides a framework to validate the security functionality of a system by performing a set of rigorous and repeatable tests. This framework provides participating countries assurance that tested products meet internationally accepted security functional criteria. The compliance of Lexmark devices with the standards is validated by an internationally approved independent laboratory using the latest policy guidance.

An evaluation that finds a product in compliance with the Common Criteria requirements is accepted as valid by all bodies that have signed the Common Criteria Recognition Agreement (CCRA). Signatories include the U.S. National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP). Membership in the CCRA can, in practice, result in common procurement requirements among participating governments.

"Building a secure bridge between digital and hardcopy information is at the core of what we do at Lexmark," said Allen Waugerman, senior vice president and CTO, Lexmark. "This latest Common Criteria certification further recognizes the effectiveness of Lexmark's full-spectrum security approach, validating that our customers across the globe can rely on Lexmark to meet the world's most stringent security standards."

In other news, Lexmark has announced that Better Buys has honored the Lexmark CX923 Series with its 2018 Innovative Product of the Year award in the high-volumes machines category.

The CX923 Series of devices print up to 65 pages per minute with tabloid-size (12-by-18-inch) media handling.

Considered Better Buys' "best of the best," the Innovative Products of the Year are selected from among those that earned Better Buys' Editor's Choice Awards throughout 2017. Each product is individually evaluated and compared against the competition on a range of criteria, including:
  • Unique features
  • Value to the customer
  • Price
Better Buys lauds the CX923 Series for its flexible paper-handling configurations, the ColorSaver feature that prints images in a lighter toner setting and high-yield (34,000-page) aftermarket toner cartridges.

"Lexmark continuously upgrades its devices with faster engines and newer features, and the CX923 Series are no exception," said Melissa Pardo-Bunte, editor, Better Buys. "They include strong features and flexible paper handling designed to help large businesses improve productivity and still save money."

"Lexmark is proud that Better Buys recognized our CX923 Series as its Innovative Product of the Year in the high-volume machines category," said Allen Waugerman, CTO, Lexmark. "We built the CX923 series for customers that need to go big — with larger, tabloid-size pages, above-average print speeds and extraordinary service intervals. And, of course, each is built with the reliability, productivity and security Lexmark customers around the globe have come to expect."
