How Can ads-s Help?
Your printing and imaging environment should always be as secure as your overall IT infrastructure. These four steps and real-life case studies show how HP can help.
1. Secure Your Data
While your network is likely secure, data sent from a PC to the printer is often unencrypted. That can expose vital information traveling between a user’s PC and a printer or MFP. How can you secure your data?
Maintain security protocols and authentication—Encrypt print jobs and use advanced security features such as HP Access Controls, IPSec and other HP solutions to fit your printing system.
Store print jobs on a protected server—This method, called “pull printing,” encrypts print jobs and sends them to a protected server instead of directly to the printer. After verification, the document is “pulled” from the server and printed securely.
Verify users—Deliver print jobs only when the employee is verified by PIN, badge, card or biometric scan at the printer.

2. Secure Your Printing Devices
The threat: The information sent to a printer or MFP could be accessed by anyone in—or out of—your office. That’s because today’s printers and MFPs store print jobs, passwords and other information on their hard drives. How can you secure your devices?
Authenticate users and access—Control access and secure all the functions of an MFP—scan, fax and copy—using PINs, badges, card readers and even biometric solutions.
Encrypt your hard disk data—Encrypt data that’s stored on the hard disk using HP High-Performance Secure Hard Disks.
Erase memory—Eliminate risks by clearing stored data after documents print. HP Secure Erase wipes the hard disk of print jobs.

3. Protect Your Printed Documents
How many printouts are currently sitting on your printer tray? All too often, printing goes to waste or ends up in the wrong hands. How can you protect your printed documents?
Protect sensitive media—Printers can be equipped with secure paper input trays to protect special paper or media used for printing checks, prescriptions or other sensitive documents.
Prevent tampering and alteration—HP offers many ink technologies—including tamper-evident ink, magnetic ink and machine-readable codes—that dramatically reduce the potential for fraudulent alteration of documents.
