Print Security: know your risk, protect your assets

 

 Home > Lexmark > Lexmark SecuritySSSSSS 

Did you know that unsecured print equals unsecured IT? It’s true. Consider the thousands of potential security threats across an output fleet made up of varied devices and vendors, all of which must be managed separately to ensure they are secure. And each day with an outdated, multi-vendor fleet means an increased risk of security breaches to your organization.
 

You might not spend much time thinking about print security, yet it should be a vital part of your IT planning process. Assessing devices, network management and document solutions for potential vulnerabilities—and developing a strategy to close the gaps—are important steps in protecting information of all types across the enterprise.

Secure Devices

Many organizations are filled with aged, poorly secured print devices. Your best defense is to implement secure access features that restrict who can use output devices using predefined user access controls.

Secure network and 

device management

With increased use of mobile devices and the need to support BYOD initiatives, IT departments must strike a balance between providing users with the tools they need to boost efficiency while minimizing the risk of intrusion across networks and connections.

Secure document solutions

Information that is printed on or transmitted through print devices could be your organization’s greatest area of vulnerability because security threats often come from within your organization rather than from outsiders.
