Protect with Managed Print Services & Print Security

Wed Feb 08, 2017 | Lasers Resource


You may have heard me talk about network security before and how your printers and copiers can put your data and company at risk.  I say this and say it often because it is the truth.  Many companies have been attacked through their printing device fleet.  There are open ports and forgotten print security settings that make printers and copiers an easy target for hackers. 

Many manufacturers have implemented security protocols into their devices standard.  Xerox has partnered with McAfee and Cisco, and HP has developed many onboard security settings to make sure your printers and copiers aren’t next on a hackers’ list. 

IT Pro has written on this topic many times; one of their latest articles, Hacker takes over 150,000 buggy printers, is an interesting read on the subject.

HP takes security seriously and has even developed a solution called JetAdvantage Security Manager that monitors your fleet for 30 known threats and will alert you if any arise.  You can also manage security policies and practices from a single portal. 

For more information on JetAdvantage Security Manager and to get a free quick assessment from Lasers Resource using that tool, click below.

How can managed print services (MPS) help?

A good MPS partner will work with you to make sure that your network and data are secure. There are a lot of steps you can take to protect your business from attacks.  I have split up printer and copier protection into three categories:

- Hardware
Software
- Paper 

Did you know that your printer and copier has a hard drive that stores information and more on it?  Find out about your printer hard drive and the risk it may hold here.

HP JetAdvantage Security Manager is the best software defense tool for your imaging fleet, partnered with HP printers and copiers to make your devices the most secured.  There is still one category that isn't protected with this - paper.  

How do you protect your printed documents?  Do you?  Find out how you can by downloading the print security eBook below.
