Building on the success of the original Canon Zoemini, which launched in 2018, a new product range of all-in-one instant camera printers offers pocket-sized companions for encouraging creativity with easy-to-print, peel-and-stick photos on the go.

The Canon Zoemini S is ideal for those wanting to capture, print, and share their holiday adventures, a spontaneous selfie, photos with friends, or an Instagram-worthy plate of food. It consists of an eight-megapixel camera, front-mounted mirror, ring-light and remote shutter capability.

It comes in three stylish finishes – rose gold, matte black and pearl white – and fits seamlessly into the palm of a hand, pocket or backpack for convenient portability.

Both cameras shoot and print mini photos in a matter of moments on 2×3-inch (5 x 7.6cm) Zink sticky-backed photo paper. 

The Canon Zoemini S is supported by the Canon Mini Print App (iOS/Android), which enables users to print their images directly from a smart device using Bluetooth as well as edit from an array of creative filters and frames. Users can also remove the challenge of capturing group selfies, by using the Canon Mini Print App’s remote shutter and self-timer function.

The app enables users to connect withInstagram and Facebook, as well as Google Photos and Dropbox, so they can print physical copies while out and about.

For those seeking a streamlined version of the Zoemini S, the Zoemini C is available without the Canon Mini Print App compatibility and packs a five-megapixel camera, a selfie-supporting reflective mirror and a Micro SD card slot. It is available in four colours: bubble gum pink, bumblebee yellow, mint green, and seaside blue.

Both the Canon Zoemini S and Canon Zoemini C come with 10 sheets of sticky-backed, smudge- and tear-proof Zink printing paper, making it easy to print and decorate anything from a bedroom wall to a fridge or smart device. Additional paper is available to purchase in packs of 20 or 50.

Both models will be available from the end of May 2019 throughout South Africa.

Vox launches customised firewall service for SMEs

In light of the growing number of cyber threats facing modern organisations, integrated ICT and infrastructure provider Vox has announced the launch of a Managed Firewall Service aimed specifically at South Africa’s small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

Click below to read more about the firewall service.

Companies targeted by ransomware have to pay between R50 000 and R150 000, and most small businesses pay up rather than lose all their information – be it financial data, customer data, billing records and more. 

The risk is greater in the SME segment of the market. While corporates can prioritise security at the C-Suite level, these smaller companies often do not have the relevant experts within the organisation to set and enforce security policies and procedures, and need the expertise of a third-party to protect them.

“We have customised a Fortinet solution so that it can be made available at a competitive price point to smaller businesses,” says Craig Freer, Executive Head for Cloud and Managed Services at Vox. “They will now have access to best of breed technology from a global company that is at the forefront of innovation in cybersecurity.” 

Fortinet’s leadership in security has been recognised by a favourable Gartner Magic Quadrant ranking for over a decade, and local SMEs will now have access to some of the best firewall technology on the market.
Customers further get access to comprehensive reporting capabilities that allow them to make informed business decisions around security, particularly around user behaviour and their environment.

Freer said: “Apart from just monitoring for, and protecting an organisation from external cyber threats, a well-monitored firewall will also help better manage network usage and data consumption, which is especially vital for small businesses that often have to make do with connections that offer lesser bandwidth.”

The firewall solution for SMEs is also available as part of a managed service. In this instance, Vox will ensure that certified firewall engineers set up policies that are correct, comprehensive, and well enforced, in order to protect the business’s data and network. This includes crafting a strategy for what an organisation should do in case a breach occurs.
