RICOH SUPPORTS U.S. DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE STANDARDS WITH NOTABLE SOLUTIONS, INC.’S AUTOSTORE INTEGRATION
RiSVP Member Software Augments Ricoh’s Common Access Card Authentication Solution for Protection of Digital Assets
West Caldwell, NJ, January 28, 2010 - Ricoh Americas Corporation, a leading provider of digital office equipment, today announced the availability of Notable Solutions, Inc.’s (NSi) AutoStore, a distributed content capture solution. In conjunction with Ricoh’s Common Access Card (CAC) Authentication Solution, AutoStore assures safeguarding of electronic communication in line with U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) standards. Together, Ricoh and NSi provide authenticated users the ability at the multifunction product (MFP) to digitally sign and encrypt email, allowing only recipients with associated private and public keys to decrypt a message. When used with Ricoh MFPs, AutoStore ensures the secure delivery of business critical documents from the moment each document is scanned, thereby eliminating document loss, manual errors and unauthorized access.
“As a Ricoh CAC 2.0 certified solution, AutoStore is well positioned to aid the channel’s ability to sell into Department of Defense opportunities as well as supplement their traditional business with new business process automation services,” said Mike Morper, vice president, Marketing, Notable Solutions Inc. “Additionally, AutoStore is a cost-effective complement to Ricoh MFPs and provides businesses an effective way to extend the use of their MFP investment by automating many manual paper-based business activities.”
AutoStore enables users to capture paper and electronic documents, process them into actionable information, and route the resulting information directly into a variety of business applications and databases for fast distribution and retrieval. AutoStore also supports various regulatory and compliance requirements for OSHA, Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA and others. AutoStore is typically deployed in government and financial services markets or wherever there is a need for automating the processing and preservation of chain-of-custody evidence throughout the document capture and routing workflow.
“In today’s business environment, security threats are ever increasing and our government customers look for solutions that effectively protect their information assets,” said Joyce Ouellette, director, solution marketing, Ricoh Americas Corporation. “Jointly, our companies’ missions are to provide our customers with tools that address their security needs and ultimately improve the integrity of their electronic messages.”
One of three Ricoh Alliance programs, RiSVP, developed in cooperation with Ricoh solution partners and Ricoh’s direct and dealer channels, focuses on two key areas: expansion of channel marketing opportunities for RiSVP members and simplifying solution access for Ricoh sales channels. By providing third-party products through Ricoh’s RiSVP program, the direct and dealer channels have more opportunities for new revenue growth and a simplified sales process.
