Organizations need to safeguard their data in ever-expanding areas in order to avoid costly and time-consuming data breaches that can halt operations and result in financial penalties. It’s critical today for businesses to have a document and data security strategy as comprehensive as the number of touchpoints that a company’s data passes through.
Shield Guard provides a cloud-based platform that collects information about the security status of all your devices, notifies you in the event of an incident, and performs mitigation. You can now conveniently monitor and manage print fleet security – across the whole fleet, in device groups or on a device-specific basis – while ensuring your organization’s compliance with information security regulations.
Sensitive information can be breached at several vulnerable points of access in a company’s network. MFPs and other end point devices can hold resident data that can be targeted for “hacking”. Many IT departments may not have the ability to ensure machine security across all devices so it is important devices be equipped with automated security process capabilities to reduce risk.
We address the risks with tools like hard drive lock passwords, hard drive encryption, automatic deletion of temporary image data, and data overwrite of electronic documents on a timed basis. Unauthorized copies can be identified through their date, time, and MFP serial numbers.
Konica Minolta puts its products through rigorous internal cybersecurity tests to protect systems and ensure they meet PCI, HIPAA, FERPA and GDPR regulations. But to ensure our customers receive the highest level of protection, we also invest in an extra layer of threat protection — penetration tests provided by NTT DATA Security Services.
We provided a line of our bizhub i-Series multifunction printers and their source code to NTT DATA for penetration testing. More than 80 hours of simulated attacks failed to extract or compromise any data, with the MFPs maintaining the privacy and integrity of all stored information. Read the report to find out more.
In addition to meeting the industry standard Common Criteria for IT security, ISO/IEC 15408, we further validate our printers through the bizhub SECURE service. Prior to sending a device to a client’s network, bizhub SECURE configures the device with additional encryption and security settings.
