Why consider secure printing for your organisation?
The prevailing view is that a printer is just another piece of marginal office equipment or a point solution. But most fail to see that these devices can actually become assets when it comes to control and security around printing. Today’s office-class devices are much more sophisticated with embedded operating systems and support for cloud-enabled, integrated document solutions. By outsourcing these services to a solutions provider with expertise in security, these functions can actually increase the security of one of the enterprise’s main outputs, printing.
Managed Print Services (MPS) providers can offer integrated workflow solutions, which, when applied to the networked printing infrastructure can give organisations complete visibility and control of print processes.
Organisations can access information at the point of need:
- Driving productivity
- Automating workflows
- Managing content security
When hosted in a private cloud system, enterprises have complete assurances that their documents will never leave the local network, essentially keeping sensitive data safe. This private platform not only protects documents from external threat, but enables administrators to monitor costs and highlight any unexpected charges.
With these measures in place, Managed Print Solutions elevate printing devices to security assets. Investment in this type of solution will likely increase in the coming years, with 80% of decision makers across Europe stating they will invest in their document security in the next 1 to 2 years. With change afoot in the information security world, organisations who are ready to invest in technology innovations will reap the security benefits.
