Are hackers targeting your office printers and multifunction systems? With so many other enticing devices like computers, tablets, and smartphones, you may wonder why a hacker would waste time on your copiers and printers.
Why Your Office Equipment May Be a Target
Your printers may not be the end-game of a skilled hacker, but they’re still desirable targets. Your multifunction printers are networked-connected, highly-efficient devices that allow you to meet daily business demands more efficiently. The solutions they deploy to accomplish these tasks are the same features that make them attractive to hackers.
- Your multifunction printers save information as it passes through every printing, copying, scanning, and faxing process. Protecting the data stored on the device hard drive is critical to your company’s overall information security strategy.
- Your multifunction printers allow you to digitally convert files and route them to document management systems and other users. This same solution can give hackers a backdoor into networks, stored documents, contact information, and more.
Protecting Your Business
SecureAudit from Kyocera business applications is a new solution designed specifically to help organizations run security checks on their multifunction printers. By checking each device against a wide range of security vulnerabilities, businesses gain valuable insight into their print environment. Some of the security criteria covered by SecureAudit includes:
- Open ports
- User accounts
- USB status

- Job boxes
The status reports generated by SecureAudit help reveal critical vulnerabilities, giving IT personnel access to actionable data to begin solving issues immediately.
