• A Smarter Way to Secure Your Smart Printers

A Smarter Way to Secure Your Smart Printers

We share a priority – security of your business. These alarming stats show why:

  • In 2016, data breaches increased 40% over 2015. (Identity Theft Resource Centre)
  • 62% of IT security professionals are not confident they can protect printer data. (Ponemon Institute)
  • 60% believe a data breach involving a network printer has happened at their organisation. (Ponemon Institute)

Smarter printers introduce new security challenges, and that’s why a holistic, 4-point approach to security is built in to the development of Xerox® ConnectKey® technology-powered VersaLink® and AltaLink® workplace assistants. This raises the protection for all system components and points of vulnerability.

Intrusion Prevention icon

Point 1. Intrusion Prevention

  • Stopping misuse or unauthorised access to the printer with a comprehensive set of safeguards preventing malicious attacks or proliferation of malware.
  • All access points are protected through user authentication and access controls, whether from transmitted data or directly at the MFP.
Device Detection icon

Point 2. Device Detection

  • Alerts if any harmful changes have been detected with a comprehensive firmware verification test, either at start-up* or upon request.
  • McAfee® Whitelisting** technology constantly monitors for and automatically prevents any malicious malware from running.
Document Data Protection icon

Point 3. Document and Data Protection

  • Prevention of intentional or unintentional release of critical data to unauthorised parties. Files are not freed until the right user is at the device.
  • The highest levels of encryption to protect stored information. Processed or stored data is deleted using vigorous data clearing and sanitisation algorithms†.

Point 4. External Partnerships

  • Xerox® ConnectKey® technology provides extra security standards through an enduring partnership with McAfee®**.
  • Xerox is trusted in the most secure environments thanks to collaboration and certifications to the highest international standards, including Common Criteria and FIPS 140-2.

Don’t just take our word for it. Xerox® VersaLink® and AltaLink® printers and MFPs keep on picking up awards. Find out more ›
