As MFPs and printers become part of an organizations integrated document workflows and business processes, security becomes a serious concern.

Securely managing business and user data is critical for corporations to be successful. Sharp addresses these concerns by providing a suite of integrated security features designed to help protect your information and document assets.

Physical Threat Security

Typically, MFPs are located in areas accessible by multiple people. Unauthorized personnel can potentially access corporate networks when devices are not fully protected. In addition, any information stored on a local desktop computer or a server can be printed without authorization. Meanwhile, at the device, confidential information can be accidentally or even purposely copied from stored documents, taken from the output tray or faxed without authorization.

Sharp Network Interface

Threats to data and information can result from unauthorized access to the MFP or printer, or by various forms of malicious network intrusion attempts and hacks.

Sharp MFPs’ intelligent network interface provides an extensive set of access and network control security features designed to prevent these threats as well as document improper device access.

Security for Public Sector

Threats to government infrastructure are rapidly growing and the number of attacks continue to rise. On one hand, information sharing is critical for the efficiency of these organizations. On the other hand, security management is becoming more challenging for IT managers. Sharp can help your organization meet US government information security requirements through ISO 15408/Common Criteria certifications or features such as Common Access Card (CAC)/ Personal Identity Verification (PIV) authentication to maintain security clearance to protect classified data.

Sharp Data Security

Protect your organization’s critical and confidential data assets with Sharp’s multi-layered approach to security that includes an extensive set of standard security features and optional Data Security Kits (DSKs).

Standard MFP security coupled with optional DSK security protects and controls the major MFP systems and subsystems (print, copy, scan, fax jobs, network settings, memory components, local user interface).

The Sharp data encryption method uses the 256*-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm on all data before it is written to RAM and the hard disk drive. It also provides overwriting routines (up to 10-times overwrite) to ensure that all information is virtually irretrievable by unauthorized users. In addition, an End-Of-Lease feature ensures that all data is erased before returning, or relinquishing control of the MFP.

* Encryption level varies per model.

Security for Private Sector

By implementing the Sharp Security Suite, Sharp MFPs can help banks and investment institutions meet the privacy requirements of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley (GLB) Act. Insurance and healthcare providers can maintain Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance with confidence. Businesses across all industries will benefit from the strict controls over financial information required under the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act.
