What was a non-issue just five years ago has become a major challenge for large and small businesses everywhere. As fewer people work from central offices and more people work remote, businesses now face data security risks from more sources.
With rising numbers of freelance workers and remote employees, mobile security risks also increase. This poses a challenge for companies who hire remote workers, as there’s less control over networks employees use to work. When employees print from a laptop or smartphone, data security threats multiply.
Many new printers from leading manufacturers offer features to enhance data security for mobile printing. Several printer drivers now provide an extra layer of security by requiring the user to enter a unique PIN on the machine before it finishes the job. This method of “pull printing” typically provides a full audit trail should a security breach take place.
Many organizations just see printers as they are—office equipment—but do not realize the significant risks associated with printing from outside the office.
