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.
Sensitive information can be breached at several vulnerable points of access in a company’s network. MFPs and other end point devices may hold resident data and information that can be targeted for “hacking”. Many IT departments may not have the ability to ensure machine security across the wide range of devices in their organization, so it is important for such devices to be equipped with automated security process capabilities.
We address the risks of data passing through bizhub MFPs and related systems 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. MFPs can be set to add security stamps, including watermarks or overlay images. Unauthorized copies can be identified through their date, time, and MFP serial numbers.
Document and data security solutions are tailored to the needs of your document-intensive industry. The bizhub SECURE family of services includes bizhub SECURE Healthcare, built to provide healthcare organizations with an MFP that complies with HIPPA technical requirements regarding protected health information. bizhub SECURE Platinum is an enhanced service that provides added focus on the requirements of PCI for Finance and FERPA for Education. AccurioPRO SECURE provides the known and trusted document and data security solutions of bizhub SECURE to our Production Print line of devices.
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. Together, the Common Criteria validation and the bizhub SECURE service enable us to assure customers that all our bizhub devices are highly secured.
