Whats new from Canon, Barracuda, Jabra & Nutanix

Fogra approved

The Canon  cut-sheet colour engines have been awarded Fogra PSD (Process Standard Digital) certification. This standard recognises the high quality output from the imagePRESS series and its ability to produce accurate colour consistency across multiple runs at speed. The entire imagePRESS product range, including the imagePRESS C165 and C910 series, has now reached the highest grade ‘A’ in print quality class in every paper and device controller combination.

Barracuda enhances solution and service offering

Barracuda has announced the expansion of its portfolio of solutions and services for IT managed service providers to include Barracuda CloudGen Access for MSPs. Additionally, the company is announcing key updates to its scalable, cloud-based remote monitoring and management (RMM) platform.

With Barracuda CloudGen Access, MSPs can expand their security services to protect customers’ resources and implement control for any unmanaged BYOD devices, without making changes to customers’ existing workflows. MSPs can also demonstrate increased value and strengthen the security posture of their customers by safeguarding against a breach caused by a potentially insecure or compromised device. As a result, MSPs are better positioned to drive business continuity, customer productivity, and mitigate business transformation risk for customers.

Since the acquisition of Managed Workplace RMM in 2019, Barracuda MSP has been innovating the cloud-based platform, connecting to Office 365 APIs, adding automated third-party software update and patch management via Barracuda Advanced Software Management, and more. The scalable, cloud-based RMM platform will now be called Barracuda RMM. Additionally, Barracuda is also introducing a new RMM Migration service, in which Barracuda MSP’s team will set up and configure Barracuda RMM, ensuring that existing preferences and needs are considered. This new service includes set up of service plans, branding, monitoring and alerting polices, automations and maintenance schedules including patch management. Integrations, such as a professional service automation tool, Office 365, virtualisation, back-up, and many others, are configured and ready for the MSP’s use. The service also features a coordinated onboarding process with the MSP through the deployment.

Jabra Evolve
Jabra Evolve

Lightweight, portable and cost-effective

The Jabra Evolve2 30 is the latest product to join Jabra’s bestselling UC headsets to enhance productivity whether working from the office or working from home. The new headset is built with the modern day desk worker in mind, engineered for collaboration, concentration and comfortable productivity all day long at an affordable price from just £72.

The two-microphone call technology can clearly capture a user’s voice, while 28mm speakers and an advanced digital chipset, ensures great audio quality too. The Evolve2 30 is also available in a Microsoft Teams certified variant, which comes with a dedicated Microsoft Teams button enabling users to jump in and out of virtual meetings with just one touch, while the boom-arm allows them to easily mute and unmute in an instant. The Jabra Evolve2 30 is also ergonomically designed to support prolonged wear and to exert evenly distributed pressure.

 extends ransomware protections

Nutanix has announced additional ransomware protections in its cloud platform. These include new threat monitoring and detection, as well as more granular data replication and robust access controls – all natively built into the Nutanix stack. These new capabilities build on Nutanix’s rich data services for network security, files and objects storage, virtualisation and business continuity to help enterprises prevent, detect and recover against ransomware attacks across multiple cloud environments.

At a time when attacks are becoming even more common due to the rise of remote work, these capabilities make it easier to implement security and business continuity best practices at the infrastructure level, rather than rely on a complex matrix of bolt-on security products.
