Northamber delivers all-new security solution for corporate laptop fleets

Northamber has announced an exclusive distribution agreement with EXO5 for the promotion and distribution of their enterprise laptop tracking and encryption service. 

The EXO5 Endpoint Security Suite enables customers to accurately track and locate their entire laptop fleet in real time, resulting in better operational intelligence and fewer asset losses.  Customers can also deploy Bitlocker and FileVault full disk encryption to endpoints, and remotely disable compromised assets.  IT organizations will benefit from deep protection of data residing on endpoints, and can quickly prove compliance with data security standards.

"The UK is already a significant market for EXO5, given the strict rules and fines related to the Data Protection Act and GDPR. Our partnership with Northamber will ensure that UK IT organizations, VARs and MSPs get even quicker access to our fleet management toolset," comments Richard Lee, CEO of EXO5.

"More and more IT organisations in the UK want tighter control of their laptop fleet and reduce the risks of asset and data loss.  With our EXO5 offering, Northamber enables our resellers to deliver exciting new security capabilities to their customers so they can protect assets and stay compliant," says Andrew Holder, Product Specialist at Northamber.

For more on the EXO5 range at Northamber, talk to our team on 020 8296 7066.

Introducing: The All NEW Fujitsu fi-800R

Fujitsu launches compact passport, ID and document scanner

Fujitsu, has announced the launch of the fi-800R, a new image scanner designed for the front desk environment, combining passport, ID and document scanning.

The latest model in the fi-series delivers an innovative compact design with a state-of-the-art dual path mechanism that enables staff to complete all of their tasks in one place – meaning ID and documents never leave the customers’ sight.

Featuring an Automatic Document Feeder with Fujitsu’s Active Separation technology, the fi-800R makes input smoother than ever, while Automatic Skew Correction eliminates feed errors. The bundled PaperStream software optimises images for downstream processes, as well as extracting information to enrich customer profiles. Automatic Profile Selection, where staff no longer have to spend time sorting documents by format, and 40ppm/80ipm scan speed means customers can get on with their day in record time.

Taking up half the space of alternative solutions, the fi-800R is perfect for the front desk, or any other place where space is tight. The innovative U-turn path mechanism with Automatic Stacking Technology ejects papers back up through the scanner, removing the need for a front output tray. Drastically reducing the machine’s footprint means the fi-800R can be used in spaces half the size of an A4 sheet.

The fi-800R is also the first scanner of its kind that doesn’t require a carrier sheet to protect passports, incorporating a return path mechanism that can process thicker items such as ID cards and passports including the MRZ (Machine-Readable Zone) alongside A4 documents. In addition to the obvious benefits of saved time and effort, this means documents stay in sight of the customer – supporting GDPR compliance.
