Lexmark Full Spectrum security

Unsecured print equals unsecured IT. Lexmark's comprehensive approach to product security addresses the full spectrum of threats in today's complex business information environments.

If your print infrastructure has slipped to the bottom of your enterprise security to-do list – you could be in trouble. You may have more pressing security issues and the balancing act between security and productivity in the hardcopy space can be a challenge. But delay could mean disaster. Each day with an outdated multi-vendor menagerie of output devices increases your odds of an incident.

Quocirca research reveals that enterprises place a low priority on print security despite over 60% admitting that they have experienced a print-related data breach.

Lexmark can help. Securely building a bridge between digital and hardcopy information is at the core of what we do. We own core technology across services, solutions, hardware and firmware–creating seamless connections and reducing the risk of security gaps between the document, the device, the network and all points in between.

Building blocks of secure access

Does your organisation require a log in to access a network print device? Surprisingly, many don't. Secure access features in Lexmark products ensure that only authenticated and authorised users can work with sensitive, valuable and protected information. It’s easy to configure confirmation of user identity through active directory integration, network or badge login, or even two-factor authentication. Taking advantage of such built-in technologies simplifies both deployment and enforcement of predefined user access controls.

Make your print fleet a no-hacking zone.

Properly configured, features supporting network security can protect Lexmark devices from unauthorised access. From disabling unnecessary features to locking down device interfaces and securing the data they contain, Lexmark devices include a range of embedded features to help you harden a device against attacks. It’s a powerful way to secure network interfaces from malicious users.

Secure remote management provides a wide range of tools and device capabilities to effectively manage a fleet of networked laser printers and multifunction products. You can restrict device management to authorised personnel and secure your device settings through a combination of rigourously enforced device access, audit logging, digitally signed firmware upgrades, certificate management, HTTPS, SNMPv3 and secure password reset.

Carefully engineered hard disc security equips Lexmark printers and multifunction products that contain internal hard discs to keep your organisation's secrets. This shield of protection both enhances the security of data stored on the hard disc and helps prevent malicious users from gaining access to confidential information.

Don't cut corners on document security

While many organisations have taken steps to secure print devices and network traffic, quite often the documents themselves go unchecked.  The information that is output on the print device could be your biggest area of vulnerability, largely because this vulnerability comes from within your organisation–not from outsiders.

Our installable security solutions take advantage of the Lexmark smart MFP platform to enhance the security of the device and your environment. Further, solutions like  Lexmark Print Management and Confidential Print  help protect the documents produced.

Lexmark devices are GDPR-ready, providing multiple, built-insecurity features allowing customers to meet several aspects ofGDPR requirements. The security features are available acrossthe entire product line and include access controls, audit logsand embedded OS protections. Features that competitors arejust now integrating into their devices have been standard formany years for Lexmark.
