With this ISO-certification announcement, KYOCERA is continuing its strategy to provide products and solutions that meet the security initiatives and requirements of today's business.

KYOCERA is continuing to make strides to ensure compliance requirements that are given for instance by government mandates, as well as stringent data security needs to ensure secure printing, sending and copying of highly confidential materials. KYOCERA's Data Security Kit (E) includes critical elements of Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Overwriting and Data Encryption.
