The key to bolstering security
So what can you do to bolster MFD security and protect your organization’s devices from phishing and malware threats?
- Educate staff: Bring employees up to speed on how multifunction devices work and the most common security threats mentioned above.
- Be vigilant: Only open emails related to the device when you are expecting them. That means only click on links when you know the person has scanned and sent a file to you, or you scanned the document on the multifunction device yourself.
- Use a high-quality multifunction device: Not every MFD is created equal, and it’s often the older models and those without built-in security measures that are easiest to penetrate.
Canon is a leading provider of secure multifunction devices for corporate use. With enhanced security encrypted hard disks across Canon MFDs, you’re protected against a range of incoming attacks. Canon’s uniFLOW print management system also employs 256-bit RSA encryption when transferring jobs across the network, which renders any attempted malware attacks ineffective.
Your organization already invests in new technology to stay ahead of the competition. But it’s equally important to invest the security to protect it.
