Customers Need Print Device Security Support

Printers are often the most neglected networked devices when it comes to IT security. Many organisations don’t have formal security policies for print devices. That’s why customers increasingly want MPS providers to ensure each contracted device is managed with security as a top priority.


Critical factors and challenges for print security

  • Old devices or devices that haven’t had a recent firmware update
  • Lack of security policies and procedures across devices and processes
  • Poor security within management tools and applications
  • Maintaining security and data protection regulations
  • Integration with corporate identity standards (AD)
  • Increased uptake of homeworking, a distributed workforce, and predicted long-term flexible working

  • Firmware updates?

  • How can you better protect print users?
