Have you ever considered whether your companies data is safe? A lot of business owners typically consider data security when it comes to computers, servers, and cloud accounts. But Multifunction Copiers are often forgotten.
Data security is a crucial aspect of any business, especially in the digital age. A multifunction copier is a device that can print, scan, copy, and fax documents, and it often stores sensitive information in its memory or hard drive. If this information falls into the wrong hands, it can lead to identity theft, fraud, legal issues, or reputational damage.
That’s why it’s important to choose a multifunction copier that has robust data security features. One of the best options in the market is Kyocera copiers and printers, which are offered by STAT Business Systems. Kyocera copiers and printers have several data security features, such as:
- Data encryption: Kyocera copiers and printers use advanced encryption algorithms to protect the data stored in their memory or hard drive. This prevents unauthorized access or tampering with the data.
Data overwrite: Kyocera copiers and printers can overwrite the data stored in their memory or hard drive with random patterns after each job or at scheduled intervals. This ensures that the data is permanently erased and cannot be recovered.
- Data deletion: Kyocera copiers and printers can delete the data stored in their memory or hard drive upon request or automatically when the device is turned off. This prevents the data from being accessed by anyone who may use or service the device.
- Data lock: Kyocera copiers and printers can lock the data stored in their memory or hard drive with a password or a PIN code. This prevents unauthorized users from accessing or copying the data.
Additional Ways To Protect Your Multifunction Copier/Printer Data
One of the key features that Kyocera offers is the Data Security Kit (DSK), which is available for select Multi-Functional Products (MFPs) and Printers. The DSK enables encryption before data is stored on a hard disk, using 128-bit or 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm. The DSK also supports two overwrite methods: one-time overwrite (for SSD) and three-time overwrite (DoD) method (default), which erase the data from the hard disk after each job completion.
The DSK is easy to use and can be configured in manual or automatic mode, without the need for user intervention. The DSK also allows you to customize the security password so that only the administrator can use the security kit. Moreover, the DSK is certified and compliant with Common Criteria ISO/IEC 15408 / IEEE 2600.1 and Evaluation Assurance Level 3 standards, which ensure that the security functions are implemented correctly and effectively.
By using Kyocera’s DSK, you can enhance your data security and compliance, as well as eliminate the need to communicate a data breach under GDPR (article 34.3.a.). You can also deploy the DSK remotely via solutions such as Kyocera Fleet Services or Device Manager, which provide you with more convenience and control over your devices.
