Network Security

Your data is at risk. It could be altered, stolen or intercepted while being transferred over your network or the internet. Securing your MFPs prevents devices being used in an advanced cyber-attack and safeguards the data stored on the device. Whether you’re scanning, printing, or sharing information, Sharp will help protect your sensitive data through:

 encrypting data on the device

 encrypted Adobe PDF files

 use of SSL protocols

 email encryption

Sharp was the world’s first MFP manufacturer to achieve Common Criteria certification and was also the first to receive EAL 4 for a Data Security Kit (DSK). We are also now recognised as the first manufacturer to comply with the Hard Copy Device Protection Profile (HCDPP) standard. Network and data security continue to be fundamental components of Sharp’s MFPs and printers, with a range of standard and optional security features and tools designed to protect data stored on the device or in transition.

There is also an intelligent network interface and firewall that can restrict access to specific computers on a network, and selectively enable or disable any protocol or service port on each device.

Whether you are looking to secure your MFPs or centralise security management of your printer-fleet we can provide a unique toolset that helps IT administrators manage a consistent print security policy for greater convenience to:

 connect, monitor and manage your devices from one, intuitive central console

 create and deploy your own network and print security policies seamlessly

 achieve compliance with the latest security regulations including GDPR
