BRAMPTON. ON. FEBRUARY 28, 2020  Canon Canada Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is proud to announce that Better Buys has recognized the imageRUNNER ADVANCE 4500 III series as a recipient of the 2020 Innovative Product of the Year award in the black-and-white MFP category. According to Better Buys, each product awarded with this accolade received an Editor’s Choice award in 2019, and has been individually evaluated and compared against the competition on a range of criteria including unique features, value to the customer and price. Better Buys’ team of researchers found that Canon’s imageRUNNER ADVANCE 4500 III series stood out among other black-and-white MFPs due, in large part, to its strong security feature enhancements.


“Canon has consistently improved upon its MFPs with great upgrades over the years, and the imageRUNNER ADVANCE 4500 III series is no exception,” says Melissa Pardo-Bunte, editor, Better Buys. “This series is equipped with advanced security features and scalable options to support offices that expect to have demanding printing needs.”


Built upon the latest edition of Canon’s award-winning third-generation imageRUNNER ADVANCE platform, this series provides users with upgraded security enhancements such as Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) integration capability*, enabling companies to include printers in their existing security systems monitoring, and McAfee Embedded Control technology, a standard security feature that, once enabled, can help protect against cyber threats.**


Targeted to benefit organizations from small businesses to enterprise-level operations, the imageRUNNER ADVANCE 4500 III series also offers standard printing, copying and scanning with optional faxing to help customers streamline workflow and improve efficiency.
