It seems like every day we’re hearing about a new security breach or cyberattack. It seems to be the new normal. Right behind digital document sharing on internal and external networks, your office multifunction device can be a source of increased risk and vulnerability if it’s not protected. Here are three ways ConnectKey from Xerox is addressing print device vulnerability.

  1. Intrusion Prevention – A disgruntled employee breaching your network, or an external hacker are considered “intrusive attacks.” Authenticating users prevents unauthorized access to the network. Authentication can be through mobile devices, password, or card readers. ConnectKey authentication intercepts and prevents external attacks from malicious software and prevents attempts to install infected files.
  2. Device Detection – Built-in McAfee solutions constantly monitors and prevents unknown software from operating on your network and will alert you if something suspicious is detected. These warnings can alert you that someone is trying to compromise your network so you can deploy counter-measures.
  3. Document and Data Protection – The Internet is far from secure. Every piece of data passing through your network is at risk, unless it is encrypted. Xerox ConnectKey-enabled devices encrypt data before it is moved anywhere on and off your network. However, even the best encryption can’t protect documents left on the printer tray. With a ConnectKey-enabled device users can use print-on-demand features that delay printing until an authentication code is input at the device.

Data security is critical for every business. Simple practices along with technology like Xerox ConnectKey can keep your documents, data and network safe and secure.
