Sharp has announced a new line of A3 Advanced and Essentials series colour document systems for the technology-driven workplace. The fourteen new colour MFPs with speeds of 30 ppm to 60 ppm, offer Sharp’s easy-to-use touchscreen display, common across the whole Sharp MX line-up and add new security enhancements and cloud integration features. Sharp will add four more models to the line-up in May 2019.
The new colour Advanced and Essentials Series offer robust security features, such as a firmware attack prevention and a self-recovery capability, which can identify a malicious intrusion and restore the machine firmware to its original state. A new whitelisting feature helps protect the machines’ file system from unauthorised access. Additionally, administrators can centrally manage select settings at the device using Active Directory Group Policy.
Sharp’s new Application Portal, available in spring 2019, will allow administrators to easily add new applications and update existing ones right from the touchscreen.
