Xerox India, a part of Xerox Corporation, the world’s leading enterprise for business process and document management services launched the new Xerox Print Security Audit Service, a tool to secure and integrate everyday work processes. It helps secure printers and multifunction devices from external and potentially internal threats, safeguard the enterprise print network and protect the intellectual property and sensitive information sent and received from printers and multifunction devices every day.
“The tool is part of Xerox’s next-generation managed printing services strategy”, said Mr. Vishal Awal, Executive Director-Services, Xerox South Asia. “The strategy revolves around improving print security, reducing costs, and better utilizing printing and imaging devices in an infrastructure. MFDs are an integral part of enterprises today and carry voluminous data which are vulnerable to malware attacks. Hence, it is imperative that are networked devices are integrated with tools like Xerox Print Security Audit Services to ensure data is secured at every stage of the workflow – from the data path along the network to the device itself. This new feature will further help customers to automate and simplify business processes.
The feature helps customers test printing and imaging infrastructure to meet specific security policies. The tool checks the security of connected devices, printers and documents in a managed print infrastructure. For instance, the tool can send alerts to ensure passwords on connected devices are changed every 90 days. The security tool also can be used for cloud printing services.
With Xerox Print Security Audit Service, for Enterprise Print Service clients, Xerox can configure device settings against a business’s security standards and use ongoing reporting to show compliance or highlight gaps that can then be addressed. Xerox can help businesses to manage, identify and resolve compliance issues in their print environment before they become a security threat.
As part of the Xerox Print Security Audit Service:
- A client’s print policy and security baseline standards are reviewed
- Device settings are then configured and applied across the entire network.
- Regularly scheduled and ongoing compliance reporting inspects the devices and retrieves data to see if they are in compliance with the baseline standard.
- Reports can be run to highlight gaps in security that need to be addressed. Action can then be taken to bring the fleet to the security baseline standard.
