Last Updated: Fri, Oct 26, 2012 19:10 hrs

Xerox, a NYSE-listed, $23-billion enterprise for business process and document management, and McAfee, a fully-owned subsidiary of Intel Corporation, have demonstrated at the McAfee Focus 12 conference in Las Vegas, a new security solution that protects printed devices and data from malware.

“When a multifunction device receives data and processes it for printing, copying, scanning or faxing, it becomes susceptible to malware attacks, a risk that often is overlooked,” Tom Moore, vice-president (security) at McAfee, said in a release on Friday.

Climax Portable Machining and Welding Systems, a US-based company, is testing the new Xerox devices protected and managed by McAfee embedded control and McAfee embedded management software, which will become available beginning in 2013, a release stated.
