This latest release extends the uniFLOW hybrid server capabilities by creating an audit trail of all document activity on Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX devices thanks to Image Log Module which captures data from individual devices. Customers can use the data to determine whether users are handling sensitive information according to corporate policy.

Audit device activity with the Image Log Module

With the close integration between uniFLOW and Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX devices, organizations can easily capture and archive all imaging activities – print, scan, fax, copy and email. Each time an activity is performed on a Canon MFD, text and image data can be captured together with log information to facilitate detailed auditing of confidential information. All captured data can then be automatically exported to external Document management Systems and/or Data Loss Prevention systems.

Easy document detection is facilitated through a full text search capability using uniFLOW’s OCR engine. A designated administrator can automatically be notified of any potential information leak when a specific word is printed, scanned, faxed, copied of sent.

Detect and prevent data loss and leaks

Canon MFDs are easy and convenient to use. Access is already controlled by uniFLOW so only authorized persons can access functions they need. The Image Log Module means customers can now also detect and prevent sensitive data loss and leaks, whether intentional or not. The Image Log Module (ILM) MEAP applet, which runs as a service in the background at set intervals, retrieves the logs from the device and passes these to the Universal Login Manager (ULM). ULM then sends the captured data directly to uniFLOW where it is processed using the secure audit workflow. All captured images are stored as highly compressed and searchable PDF + XML with metadata.

Deployment of the Image Log Module in hybrid environments

Until now it was not possible to deploy the Image Log Module in a hybrid environment, it could only be licensed using traditional, perpetual licenses. With this release it can be used and charged for as well in hybrid environments.
