•   Zero-trust security: “Lexmark can ensure that the print environment fits within an overall zero trust framework for security by supporting guiding principles such as segmenting and compartmentalising data; ensuring endpoint security; never trust, always verify; and least privileged access.1

•   MPS Security Services: As part of its managed print services, “Lexmark offers a host of MPS security services in areas such as asset management, consumables management, break/fix, help desk integration, predictive service, security assessment, and configuration management.1

•   Cloud Services: “Lexmark has assembled one of the broadest portfolios of cloud services aimed at helping organisations modernise print infrastructure and migrate to a print- as-a-service model.1

•   “Deep industry knowledge and expertise1”: IDC Marketscape advises that customers should look to Lexmark when they need solutions specific to their industry. “Lexmark should also be on the short list of vendors when considering factors such as security to meet hybrid work challenges, moving print infrastructure to the cloud, developing a strong security posture that can expand and evolve over time, and a need for consistent global service delivery.1”
