Securing your all documents can be overwhelming. But with today's technology it doesn't have to be. From HIPPA to the FTC regulations and compliances identity theft is still rapid. How secure is the hard drive on your office copier? Do you have a plan in place to secure it when it goes back to the dealer? Copier hard drive security is a major deal and now it's time you re-evaluated your company policies to ensure you’re up to speed on best practices.
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 7-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.
