Today's networked office equipment retains document data that can lead to the accidental or malicious disclosure of confidential document data, which could seriously impact your business. To mitigate this threat, Sharp offers a scalable suite of security features and options geared toward preserving the confidentiality of your digital document data.


Today's office environments utilize the convenience of networked equipment. However that convenience, often comes with a risk. That unauthorized users, or even hackers, might be able to, access the network, retrieve data from it or alter settings. In fact even if data cannot be retrieved, viewing the configuration settings alone often gives sufficient network information for a hacker to be able to mount a serious "denial of service" attack on the main network servers.


The MFP is the natural link between information and the way people use it, which is why Sharp has pioneered security in office equipment to proactively protecting against the mishandling of information. Multi-function printers (MFPs) tend to see a good deal of highly sensitive information pass their way: executive memos, financial reports, and draft of all kinds of internal documents.
