Business Issues -> Security & Risk
Published: December 2012
Businesses of all sizes have data of value, such as employee and customer information, which must be protected. While many businesses have secured their IT infrastructure to minimise unauthorised access to confidential or sensitive data, unsecured MFPs and networked printers remain a critical source of vulnerability.
Network connectivity, along with hard disk and memory storage, means networked printers and multifunction peripherals (MFPs) are susceptible to the same security risks as any networked device. Without proper control, it is all too easy for sensitive or confidential information to fall into the wrong hands.
While SMBs face challenges around data protection and compliance, they also grapple with resource and time constraints. Consequently, they often mistakenly downplay the importance of print security.
