As more data goes digital, cyber thefts are on the rise. Did you know that the office multifunction printer is often a weak point in network security? Unprotected, an MFP can allow hackers access to the sensitive data stored on it’s hard drive and elsewhere in your network. However, with Xerox’s ConnectKey technology your data remains secure with several layers of protections. Here’s how:
Prevention against Intrusion
Hacking threats can come from both external criminals and internal employees. ConnectKey works to protect you from both with user authentication and transaction logging. No one is allowed to access your ConnectKey-enabled MFP without proper credentials, and once logged on every action is recorded. Any detected attempts to install malicious files are rejected by the ConnectKey software.
Detection and Notification
Though the ConnectKey software is an effective means of blocking intrusions, your Xerox MFP is also equipped with McAfee solutions that can detect any attempts to install malicious software or other suspicious activities. A report is automatically generated and immediately sent to your contact person to alert them so further actions can be taken to protect your network.
If despite other security measures your information is intercepted, Xerox still has you covered. All data travelling to or from your MFP is encrypted, making it useless to hackers. This makes sure your data is safe both within and outside your network.
Documents are an easy target for theft if you leave them sitting on the print tray. To prevent this, Xerox ConnectKey-enabled MFPs are equipped for pull printing, delaying the printing of a job until the user enters an authentication code at the print device. This eliminates any sensitive data remaining unclaimed at the printer. Combined with the audit trails that are created, this helps keep your data safe.
In today’s world, security has to be at the top of your company’s priority list. Xerox makes this easy with their exclusive ConnectKey software. With multiple levels of protection, Xerox protects your data throughout the print process, and helps keep hackers out of your network.
