Don’t Make the Mistake of Neglecting the Security of your Multifunction Printers

No matter the size of your company, you have confidential data and intellectual property to protect. And between evergrowing government regulations and compliance requirements, many industries find themselves with rigorous mandates to meet. As an organization and employer, it’s your responsibility to keep sensitive customer and employee details secure.

From employees’ personal details to customers’ valuable data to your own intellectual property, your company transmits and prints an enormous amount of sensitive information that would be extremely valuable to identity thieves and competitors. The costs of a breach add up quickly across detection, notification and remediation. And the toll of lost business and brand reputation can be devastating to your organization. Remember, no company of any size or industry is immune.

Don’t Overlook Your MFP

As one of the most shared resources in your organization, don’t make the mistake of neglecting the security of your multifunction printers (MFPs). As they store and transmit business-critical information, customer records, employee files and more, this centrally located and networked resource is continuously accessed by people inside and outside your organization. That means every sensitive document you print, copy, scan and transmit could be vulnerable to an attack.

Don’t Let Your Device Become Compromised

From data on hard drives to unauthorized access to unsecured transmissions to or from the device, there are several points of vulnerability in your print and document environment that need protecting. For instance, networked printers can become hacker gateways making unencrypted data easily accessible. From there, sensitive information can be digitally shared with unknown sources and become physically available to anyone. It’s more important than ever to make sure you’re protected at every level.
