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.
Lexmark Print Management lets users send jobs from anywhere and pick them up at any print release-configured device on your network. You’ll improve printing flexibility, avoid having documents piling up on printers, protect the confidentiality of documents that would otherwise be out in the open, and save on printing costs.
And the whole release process is secured by credentials entered at the device, in the form of network user identification or an ID badge.
Lexmark Software Partnerships help customers to identify business workflow challenges and develop solutions that address the unique needs of each organisation. Our solution portfolio consists of paper-based and digital solutions that leverage the best of third-party partnerships to help businesses of all sizes navigate the constant, complex flow of information.
The result? Organisations simplify processes that bridge the gap between print and digital information for greater efficiency, agility and cost savings. And these solutions are customised to integrate seamlessly with core platforms for ease of implementation and fast user adoption.
Creating a CA-signed device certificate to permit establishing SSL, IPsec and 802.1x connections for network devices is normally a lengthy process.
ACE simplifies the process for solutions-enabled devices in an Active Directory environment, requiring entry of only a limited number of domain control and user identity parametres.
Badge authentication solutions include contactless card solutions (applications) for basic badge authentication. This option is available when user identity is linked to office security ID badges.
The solutions can verify the badge ID and retrieve user information so the Lexmark device can access held print jobs, identify the source of scanned documents, or identify a user for other purposes.
The Common Access Card (CAC) and Personal Identity Verification (PIV) authentication solution* provides safe workflow processes for more control over the security of networked Lexmark MFPs in federal government operations.
Digital-information capture functions require strong user authentication to protect against unauthorised access and guard critical data. The same solution also supports SIPR token cards (using a different card interface application) to provide access over the Secret Internet Protocol Router Network.
Lexmark partners with 90Meter to leverage the benefits of smart card security. By embedding the solution directly into the Lexmark device, users experience the same level of security at the printer or MFP as at their own workstation. This partnership ensures ongoing compatibility with SIPR tokens and fulfills the latest government security mandates including FIPS 140-2 and FIPS 201.
