Organizations that handle sensitive data need to ensure that every level of that data handling is secure – and that includes their printer and copier. Having an multifunction printer placed on a network that handles confidential information means that having safeguard of security is crucial, so that no one can access their network infrastructure and then find access to confidential data.
Sharp multifunction printers offer this safeguard for businesses. Sharp’s security suite is focused on the protection of customers’ sensitive and confidential data with an iron-clad, multi-layered approach.
Unsecured MFPs and printers can leave vulnerabilities for your business. This can be loss of productivity, regulatory non-compliance, loss of access, stolen information, lawsuits, and unauthorized use of equipment and network resources.
In order to protect against these issues for your organization, Sharp Security Suite implements protections that ensure data and information security, access control security, network security, fax security, document security, and audit trail security.

Security like this is ideal for anyone dealing with confidential information. Organizations in the education field could benefit from having these Sharp MFP’s in their offices. College/University campuses, libraries, public organizations and local governments that record student records, addresses, contracts and legal documents could use this.

Data and information is secured through the Data Security Kid (DSK). The security kit includes Automatic and Manual Data Overwrite, 256-Bit AES Data Encryption, as well as several other features. These can come as an integral part of the MFP or as a separate kit, depending on the model you purchase.
