Few events can damage a company’s reputation and consumer trust more than the misuse or loss of sensitive personal data. As well as brand damage, data breach incidents can lead to substantial financial costs, including legal penalties.  Consequently, businesses are under intense pressure to protect the ever-growing volume of information that they store, but must enable a suitable level of access to employees, business partners and customers. Much of this information, at some stage in its lifecycle, resides on one of the least secure types of media – the printed document.

As more businesses move to a shared networked multifunction peripheral (MFP) environment, left unprotected, it is all too easy for unclaimed confidential or sensitive information to fall into the wrong hands – either accidentally or intentionally.

Yet many businesses neglect to secure MFPs, with Quocirca research revealing that just 22% having implemented secure printing. This leaves businesses exposed to data losses; 63% of businesses admit they have experienced one or more print-related data breaches.

Find out how secure printing technology can provide authentication, authorization and accounting capabilities, helping businesses improve document security and meet compliance regulations.
