Ensuring you meet the requirements of NIS2 – How Konica Minolta can help you
Now is the time to take action, as Martin Mølvig, Head of Security Services Europe at Konica Minolta commented, "The launch of NIS2 has brought cybersecurity concerns sharply into focus for many organisations that were unaffected by the original NIS regulations and that may not have been aware beforehand. It is vital that all organisations consider how they are affected and what they must do to be compliant.”
Martin added, “It may be tempting to avoid investing in the right cybersecurity protection, but NIS2 raises the bar for everyone. For example, from a Business Continuity point of view there may be workarounds to keep the business going through to recovery. But what do you say to stakeholders, customers, and the press etc when there are interruptions to your operations?”
Konica Minolta offers a number of professional security solutions that can help to address some of the key NIS2 requirements, such as:
- Incident handling and maintenance, including vulnerability handling and disclosure.
- Business continuity with backup management.
- The use of multi-factor authentication.
Incident handling and maintenance, including vulnerability handling and disclosure
Konica Minolta's endpoint protection service Workplace Intrusion Patrol, which is based on Microsoft Defender, protects IT endpoints such as PCs/laptops, tablets and mobile phones, as well as servers, regardless of where employees work and even short periods when they are not connected to a network. The service detects and neutralises stealthy attacks that have managed to bypass other protective security measures (such as passwords and traditional anti-virus tools) and are now present in the IT environment, stopping intruders before they can use the endpoint as a springboard for wider or more serious attacks on central systems and data. In the event of a threat, this cloud-based service isolates the device and eliminates the threat before it spreads further in the IT environment.
The leading-edge anti-virus solution Bitdefender can be embedded in Konica Minolta's multi-functional printer bizhub i-Series’ firmware and monitors all scanned files and documents transferred to and from it in real time. It immediately detects viruses and malware and informs about the potential threat. It also enables manual scanning on hard drives as well as scanning on demand. This prevents the spread of viruses to other PCs and servers and ensures that the multifunction device does not become a springboard for the loss of corporate information.
Further, with Shield Guard - Konica Minolta's cloud service for remote security monitoring and management for MFPs - security settings of multiple MFPs can be monitored from anywhere. It collects information about the security status of all devices, sends notification in the event of an incident, and performs mitigation.
Business continuity with backup management

The use of multi-factor authentication
On top of this, Workplace One offers multi-factor authentication (MFA) which prevents unauthorised access to sensitive information. With MFA, your users must present a combination of two or more credentials to verify their identity for login. Konica Minolta’s cloud print solution Workplace Pure offers also MFA.
