Proven protection for confidential data, device access and network safeguards
Physical Security Threats
Typically, MFPs are located in areas accessible by multiple people. Unauthorized personnel can potentially access corporate networks when devices are not fully protected. In addition, any information stored on a local desktop computer or a server can be printed without authorization. Meanwhile, at the device, confidential information can be accidentally or even purposely copied from stored documents, taken from the output tray or faxed without authorization.
Network Security Threats
Unsecured access to a company’s stored data makes it vulnerable to being stolen or altered. In the worst case, a user from the outside can obtain confidential information, unleash a Denial of Service (DOS) attack, or even place a virus on the device via a network or a phone line. Through a fax line, or corporate LAN, communications could be intercepted or sent without permission anywhere in the world. Even MFP data stored on a hard disk drive or in memory could be compromised or stolen if not protected.
