Printer Device Security

Secure printing environment at Konica Minolta

Safety always comes first

In every company, employees manage vast amounts of information every day – much of which will be confidential, of course. Documents, personal data, addresses, budgets, plans, mock-ups and countless other resources are printed, copied and scanned with every passing hour at commercial organisations of every shape and size, and without reliable document security, they run a high risk of such sensitive data falling into unauthorised hands.

The consequences of this – with future plans and mock-ups copied with no password and distributed to competitor companies, personal data sold, and budgets revealed – could potentially be disastrous.

Introducing "The Hacker"

Over the course of 80+ hours, multiple efforts were made to access the operating system of Konica Minolta's MFPs by trained experts at NTT Data, an internationally respected IT services provider. All attempts to extract data failed, with the MFPs maintaining the privacy and integrity of the stored information!

Don’t make the mistake of neglecting security issues connected with MFPs. If a device is accessible by a wide range of different users (including staff, visitors and contractors), the risk of a data leak does increase. Konica Minolta offers secure printing solutions combining fast access to all of the device’s functionalities with the ability to control the access rights of employees. This ensures confidential data cannot be accessed by visitors or unauthorised personnel. Konica Minolta systems remain secure, flexible and user-friendly at all times – so you’re very much the one in control. 

With Konica Minolta, you know you’re implementing exactly the right data security policies, and can ensure those newly-copied confidential documents lying in the MFP output tray or files stored on the hard disk of a device don’t fall into the wrong hands of persons with unauthorized access. The comprehensive range of security measures offered by Konica Minolta lets you guarantee the security of your documents and data.

Our devices are designed to be integrated into network environments, ensuring all printing processes need to comply with stringent security standards, and potential security threats are closed using the network connection. All of which ensures you benefit from the numerous ways Konica Minolta protects your data, and limits access to confidential information.

Konica Minolta partners with Bitdefender – a leader in IT security – for the development of its bizhub i-Series. Bitdefender’s leading edge anti-virus solution has been embedded in the MFP’s firmware and monitors all scanned files and documents transferred to and from it in real time. It also enables automatic virus scanning on hard drives as well as manual scans.

All bizhub i-Series models are ready for GDPR, and ISO 15408 certified HCD-PP, so data privacy standards and security requirements are met.

Device Security use case

Today, virtually every business has multifunctional printers (MFPs) that print, scan, copy, fax and even send emails. Since the systems have both a hard disk and are connected to the company network and are usually located in places that are accessible to many people, they can represent a significant security gap if not adequately protected.
