SECURE YOUR PRINT ENVIRONMENT WITH MANAGED PRINT
Either you or your IT team are familiar with most of the latest security threats. Most threats come in the form of a cyber-attack or phishing scheme and can be mitigated with firewalls, employee training, security policies, and strong passwords.
But wait. There’s more.
We shouldn’t have been surprised, but most of us were exactly that when hackers discovered the hidden vulnerabilities in unmanaged print environments. Office multifunction systems and networked laser printers opened up new opportunities for criminals to gain access to networks and caches of valuable information stored on devices and cloud platforms.
NOW THAT YOU KNOW
Understanding the risks is the first step toward correcting the print-related security issues facing your organization. Managed Print Services professionals can help by working with you to close the security gaps in your print environment. Here are just a few of the areas that may need addressing:
Limiting access to your devices is essential; an unprotected networked multifunction system is an open invitation to hackers. Implement two-layer authentications now to keep those with malicious intentions from accessing your printers and copiers.
DOCUMENTS LEFT IN PRINT TRAYS
Pull, or follow-me printing keeps sensitive documents from releasing to print trays unless the user is present at the device. This simple Managed Print tool can prevent major security violations from occurring when unauthorized personnel view protected information, either intentionally or by accident.
DATA IN TRANSIT
Your documents aren’t just vulnerable in storage; hackers can intercept print streams to steal information on its way to your printers. Encryption eliminates this risk.
UNPROTECTED HARD DRIVES
Thousands of documents may be stored on your copier’s hard drive. Implement overwrite functions and protect the hard drive when the device leaves your location.
