Is your MFD a security blind spot?

YSoft SafeQ
As many as 31 billion devices worldwide will exist by 2020[1] and many of these will exist on an organization’s network. This includes multifunctional devices (MFDs) which, through connectivity and network access, form part of the Internet of Things (IoT). Additionally, MFDs and the print services they provide, can process sensitive and private data. Securing MFDs has never been more important for organizations.

A security blind spot

With an increase in sophisticated cybercriminal activity, MFDs may easily become a target that could compromise the entire network. However, many organizations overlook the avoidable security risks posed by their MFDs, making MFDs a security blind spot in an otherwise secure network.
 

Keeping data safe: YSoft SafeQ, you and your print provider

In a newly released white paper, Securing the Enterprise Workflow Environment, Y Soft outlines six key risk areas in the print environment and how they can be secured.
 
The paper also points out how keeping the print environment, and the data it may contain, secure and that it is a team approach. YSoft SafeQ, as the platform that manages print/copy/scan and fax activity, plays a big role. However, the IT organization and the print provider (MFD brand) also contribute in important ways.

Secure your print environment

The challenge of securing data is a necessity as digital transformation becomes commonplace. Instead of a a security blind spot, the MFD must form part of a strategic and holistic approach to security, safeguarding your organization. To defend against potential attacks, a proactive approach must be taken to remove any weak links, this means implementing a secure enterprise workflow solution. YSoft SafeQ and its network of MFD partners have helped over 15,000 customers worldwide secure their print environment. Can we help you?
