Partner-Ready Print: Print Security For All

Lexmark’s full-spectrum security approach secures your customers’ data through the entire print cycle.

Did you know that five out of six companies don’t have a security strategy around printing? It’s a shocking statistic that leaves a massive amount of personal information vulnerable.

“Everyone should be concerned about protecting information in today’s environment,” says Larry Early, director of software and industry marketing at Lexmark. “There’s a market for information, whether it’s credit card information, medical information or insurance information.”

The 2019 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report shows a high number of security incidents reported each year. As more devices are added to the network, that number is sure to climb.

“A lot of printers are network IoT devices plugged into your corporate infrastructure,” says Eric McCann, manager of software product marketing at Lexmark. “Our MFPs can send an email to anyone in the world. When you think about that possibility, you need to protect that.”

McCann says in a climate where everything’s connected, Lexmark has an all-encompassing solution.

“The thing that sets us apart is that our security is standard in every product we manufacture, from our low end to our high end, across all segments,” says McCann. “We want our customers and our resellers to place the right product where it needs to be placed, not worrying about whether it has the functionality they need.”

Lexmark’s full-spectrum security approach focuses on much more than the device itself. Its strategy secures your customers’ data through the entire print cycle, from document transmission to the print process.

“We have to cover everything from physical security, to authentication and access control, protecting disk and memory wiping, closing down ports, using the right security protocols that our customers have selected,” says Early.
