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.
Lexmark devices can be configured to validate user credentials and restrict device functions. They use Active Directory and other directory server platforms, including internal accounts, NTLM, Kerberos 5, LDAP, LDAP+GSSAPI, password, and PIN.
Control local and remote access to specific menus, functions and workflows on each device. Entirely disable functions like copy, print, fax, scan to e-mail, FTP, held jobs and address book. Over 50 access controls are available, providing greater flexibility for your unique environment.
Lexmark laser printers and MFPs include support for USB devices which may cause concern in environments where security is critical. Designed with security in mind, USB host ports have various mechanisms in place to keep them from being used in a malicious manner.
When a user authenticates in order to scan a document to e-mail, the e-mail address of the sender is automatically looked up and inserted into the “From” field. This lets the recipient clearly see that the e-mail was generated by that individual, not anonymously or from the MFP.
Lexmark devices can be configured to hold rather than print incoming faxes during scheduled times. Incoming faxes are held securely on the hard disc until the proper credentials have been entered on the Lexmark device. Examples of credentials include a PIN, password, and user network ID and password.
