- IP Security (IPSec)
encrypts and authenticates all network traffic to devices
- 802.1x Support
requires device authentication prior to accessing the network
Device hardening secures the device's network interfaces
- Port Filtering
allows configuration of network ports on which devices listen for or transmit
- TCP Connection Filtering
disallows all TCP connections from other addresses protecting the device against unauthorized access
- Hard Drive Encryption
allows all residual data on the hard drive of devices to be encrypted
- Hard Disk Wiping (MFP only)

Device Operation ensures appropriate users only use the device and information associated with usage is protected.
- User Authentication (MFP only)
authenticates users against the customer's corporate directory via LDAP, LDAP over SSL, Kerberos, or NTLM.
- Address Book Lookup via LDAP over SSL (MFP only)
ensures all information exchanged via LDAP, including the user's credentials, names, email addresses, and fax numbers, are encrypted to preserve the confidentiality and privacy of the data
