As the MFP and printers become parts of the office’s integrated document workflows and business processes, security becomes a serious concern. Securely managing business and user data is critical for businesses to be successful. Fraser addresses these concerns by providing a suite of integrated security features designed to help protect your information and document assets.
Physical Security Threats
Typically, MFPs are located in areas accessible by multiple people. Unauthorized staff and visitors can potentially access corporate networks when devices are not fully protected. In additional, any information stored on a local desktop computer or server can be printed without authorization. Meanwhile, at the MFP, confidential information can be accidentally or even purposely copied from stored documents, taken from the output tray or faxed without any 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 or even place a virus on the device via a network or phone line. Through a fax line or corporate LAN, communications can be intercepted or sent without permission to anywhere. Even MFP data stored on a hard disk drive or in memory could be compromised or stolen if not protected.
