Partner-Ready Print: Ease Into Print Security With An All-Encompassing Solution

Discover how Lexmark's Markvision printer fleet management software and cloud fleet management tool is the simple security solution your customers are seeking.

Nearly half of all cyberattacks are aimed at small businesses, according to Cyber Defense Magazine’s 2019 cybersecurity statistics. That figure is just one concrete reason why companies must protect their data, especially when it comes to printing.

With all of the connected devices out there, you need a simple solution for your customers, which is where Lexmark can help. Every product from Lexmark comes equipped with the same security features.

“One of the most difficult things when it comes to security isn’t configuring one device the way you want it; it’s configuring the entire fleet and making sure that fleet stays configured the way you want it configured. MV does that by default,” says Eric McCann, manager of software product marketing at Lexmark.

MV, or Markvision, is one of Lexmark’s two free tools. The printer fleet management software provides visibility into your customers’ entire fleet of network printers and multifunction devices, reducing the burden on their IT staff. The other tool, Cloud Fleet Management, allows you to remotely manage your customers’ print infrastructure in one place.

“They’ll be able to from their remote operations center inside their partner campus access all of their customers’ devices through Cloud Fleet Management and maintain these configurations and firmware settings,” says Larry Early, director of software and industry marketing at Lexmark.

All of these offerings are customizable. Features can be turned on or off at the control panel or through the embedded web server, and Lexmark will provide direct support along the way.

“Part of the vulnerability process is that communication stream,” says McCann. “We always want to communicate out that we do have an issue. Here’s an immediate fix for it and here’s a long-term fix. Allowing us to be a part of that strategic conversation with our customers allows us to be more involved in that process.
