Ricoh and Cisco team up
Ricoh and Cisco Systems have announced a global strategic partnership aimed at providing cloud solutions to empower digital workplaces that deliver increased productivity in a more secure environment.
The two companies will jointly develop solutions that deliver simpler and more secure environments in three layers (cloud, network, and device) to promote digital transformation and improve productivity.
The two companies will work to provide secure and autonomous network connections for multi-functional printers and other IoT devices. This will deliver more secure connectivity for a diverse set of devices. Integration of Ricoh products and the Cisco Identity Service Engine will enable automated operation and management of connected devices and appropriate security settings
Cisco and Ricoh will start to implement the solution on a trial basis starting April 2019. After verification, it will initially be offered in Japan after September 2019, followed by a global deployment.
