Section 3 — Information Security
Advanced Box Security
The Advanced Box feature enables the
imageRUNNER ADVANCE system to serve as
a file sharing storage space. Users can save files
in a shared folder, or within their own personal
space in their native file format such as Word or
PDF. Each user's personal space is protected
with security credentials and requires the user to
login prior to gaining access. Users can also
store documents for others to access within the
shared folder and any sub-folders.
Advanced Box also allows users to access their
stored files from their desktop using Windows
Explorer by mapping the folder as a network
drive. Upon mapping or accessing the folder, the
user will be prompted to authenticate through a
Windows login box.
Administrators can manage the Advanced Box feature through
the Remote UI interface and perform the following actions:
Create user accounts and define type (Admin vs.
Activate authentication and enable Personal Space
Register network devices for remote access
Select the file formats allowed for storage
(printable format only, common Office formats,
or all). By limiting to printable formats only, such
as TIFF, JPEG and PDF, the risk of viruses that
are commonly attached to .exe files is reduced.
Also, the Advanced Box can be scanned by anti-
virus software when shared as a network drive.
To prevent the storage of executable files that may contain viruses and other malicious code,
system administrators can restrict the types of documents that can be saved to only printable
formats, such as PDF, TIFF, and JPEG.
