We’ve all heard about the Internet of Things (IoT), and been quite excited by the prospect of connecting our fridge to the internet to reorder your food, being able to remotely manage your home’s central heating or the ability for your car to receive firmware updates. It seems everything has the ability to connect. But of course, with this benefit, security becomes an increasing risk, especially when these smart and connected devices are linked together within your company. It’s important to check how we can prevent risk and increase security, especially information security for businesses.
Printers are often overlooked as devices that can also connect and provide fully mobile available features. Samsung Printing Solutions, with both printer and software technologies that are fully supporting these features, therefore is trying move beyond printing. Printers can and should play its role as an active security agent for businesses by preventing both intentional and unintentional leaking of confidential information within your business. Printers should be used beyond printing documents out, but also keeping documents safe with holistic and integrated printing solutions system.
Providing a secure document environment
There is something called 3 A security process that Samsung Printing Solutions apply to stop any information leakages from happening, especially through document management perspective: Authentication, Authorization and Accounting*. At the authentication stage, the person who is releasing the document is being instantly recognized and identified. Then, the person’s level and scope of authorization in dealing with particular information can be evaluated. Finally, in the accounting process, the IT or security manager can track and monitor the person who has released the document. Thus, for every document release, the 3A security process will safeguard your company’s data. Samsung Printing Solutions Secu Thru™ Lite is a secure solution that provides a safe printing environment for the handling of confidential documents. By ensuring only authorized users have access to their documents at the point of print; your business’s sensitive material is better protected.
How would this be applied?
Managing hundreds of important patient related documents daily, the room for security leakages in healthcare can be high, if not managed well. The sensitivity of patient records makes healthcare one of the most security sensitive environments where there is a high level of privacy. Security of information is paramount. It’s little wonder that healthcare institutions are exploring robust and cost-effective solutions to meet their concerns. With Samsung Printing Solutions, such security challenge can be resolved. Requiring no external server and offering simple installation process, Samsung Printing Solutions has designed security system that protects against privacy invasion, identity theft and hacking, allowing compliance with high security rules and protecting patient privacy.
Whilst the Internet of Things opens up new markets and provides us with more information on customer buying habits, it also opens our business to data risk. It’s important that those risks are carefully considered. By managing documents with Samsung Printing Solutions, your business and its data will remain secure.
