FUJIFILM Business Innovation Day: A Success with VIPs & Press
On 21 May 2021, we held the "FUJIFILM Business Innovation Day" at HKCEC to announce our company name change with a launching ceremony. We also showcased our new business strategies and new products launched under the Fujifilm brand to media friends and VIP guests.
We were honoured to have Dr. David Chung, JP, Under Secretary for Innovation and Technology of HKSAR, as our guest-of-honour to officiate the ceremony, together with Mr. Yasuyuki Matsumoto, our Managing Director and company senior executives.
In his opening remarks, Mr. Matsumoto stressed that “We are determined to provide innovative products and services to serve Hong Kong businesses of all sizes through their digital transformation journeys for sustainable business success.”
“Multi-function printers serve as the gateway for us to apply our expertise in documents, both paper and digital, to make business speedier and information even more accessible,” Mr. Matsumoto said to the media after the ceremony. “This is how FUJIFILM Business Innovation will build the best communications setup of the future for our customers’ business environment.”
Upholding the “Never Stop” spirit of Fujifilm Group, we launched 14 brand-new multi-function devices and printers in the ApeosPro, Apeos C, and ApeosPrint series under the Fujifilm brand on the same day. The three new series aim to serve users with different business needs.
ApeosPro is the high-performance multi-function printer series that offers high-quality images for professional use as well as general office functions such as copying, faxing and scanning. Apeos C digital colour multi-function printers support versatile, remote workstyles with enhanced security capabilities and tools that support office operational efficiency.
ApeosPrint aims to support businesses with limited office space such as retail stores and hospital receptions. The series also includes the new ApeosPrint C325 dw, the smallest and lightest in its class, with capabilities in high-speed, high-image printing, thereby improving work productivity.
Besides the new products, we presented an exhibition themed “Business Innovation Journey” to help the media and our guests to understand more about FUJIFILM Business Innovation Hong Kong and our business approach.

Achieving COVID-Ready Mobile Security for Financial Services
The financial services industry (FSI) in Hong Kong has always been at the cutting edge. Apart from the eight virtual banks launched in Hong Kong in 2020, the recent COVID-19 pandemic has increased the uptake of digital financial services. More bank branches are closing or limiting operations, and customers are increasingly resorting to banks’ digital services to manage their personal and business banking needs from the comfort of their homes and offices.
Increased post-COVID uptake has also had the effect of accelerating potential threats to confidential and critical data. A Bitglass report showed that 62% of all exposed data in 2019 originated from the financial services industry, despite accounting for only 6.5% of that year’s data breaches.
Whilst a hybrid workforce is a major trend, remote work comes with its own unique challenges. The vulnerabilities inherent in working far from a secured office must be addressed by any administrator.
The challenge is clear for IT administrators and employers.
A security consultant can help you build and maintain a security infrastructure that may include any or all of the following:
- Virtual private network (VPN)
- Data loss prevention (DLP)
- Endpoint security solutions
- Mobile device management solutions
Besides using the right tools, policies should also be created to govern the use of the mobile data environment. Administrators need to strike a fine balance: lax administration will endanger the company, whilst overly strict enforcement can alienate users or result in poor compliance.
