API Cryptek’s Netgard™ MFD Card Reader Appliance

Kyocera and API Cryptek, a leading provider of secure networking products and solutions, offer complete device locking security capabilities through API Cryptek’s Netgard™ MFD card reader appliance for select Kyocera multifunctional products (MFPs).

  • End users who wish to access standard full functions of a Kyocera MFP, including copy, scan, e-mail and fax, will be required to authenticate with their U.S. Department of Defense-issued CAC/PIV Card (Common Access Card/Personal Identity Verification) and their personal identification number (PIN) via API Cryptek’s Netgard MFD.
  • With this advanced security in place, Kyocera MFPs are securely locked from performing tasks until the user has been successfully identified.
  • Utilizing the Netgard MFD with Kyocera’s MFPs effectively secures the device and prevents unauthorized users from accessing privileged materials or tampering with network resources.

API Cryptek’s Netgard™ MFD card reader appliance supports Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12). HSPD-12 is a government-wide mandate for Federal agencies to implement enhanced security measures to protect network enabled devices from a variety of threats. To support the needs outlined in HSPD-12, API Cryptek has enhanced their Netgard MFD application with additional security features available on select networked Kyocera MFPs for Government agencies operating in the United States and around the world.
