Security Layers

There are many considerations to a secured print environment

The usage of multi-purpose printers or MFPs are prominent in small to large organizations because of how easy they make day-to-day operations. Features like faxing, scanning, photocopying, and emailing have cut down time and costs. However, the problem with that is that it opens a multitude of security vulnerabilities.

According to the Global Print Security Report, 60% of businesses in the UK, US, France, and Germany suffered a print-related data breach in the last year. The data loss related to these breaches costs companies an average of more than $400K. A 2016 IDC survey revealed that unsecured printers and multi-function devices caused 35% of all office security breaches. Those network security breaches cost companies an estimated $133,800 each year, the IDC reports. For small businesses, the loss may not come out to these large sums, but nevertheless, they are there.

In addition to financial loss – productivity, consumer confidence, and damage to the brand will negatively affect the organization. Impacted businesses may not even be aware that their printers are responsible.

So how do you mitigate these risks at your company?

We’ve broken down print security into critical layers. Starting with an analysis of the firmware, we work outward to secure the settings, ports, and finally, the actual documents that are released from the device. How does your company weigh in on the following?
